Wonolo is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Stride, a company that helps you save time and money on insurance and taxes. They make it really easy to find the right coverage for you at the lowest possible prices and help you get enrolled in 10 minutes or less.
Here’s what you’ll get from our partnership with Stride:
- A personalized recommendation for health insurance based on your preferred doctors, prescription drugs, and medical conditions
- Access to more plans than the government exchanges (at the same price)
- An easy way to estimate your income so you can save as much money as possible on your insurance payments
- Tips on how to lower your health insurance bill with guidance from Stride's blog and their award-winning Member Experience team
- Support and answers to questions you might have during enrollment
The good news: all of this will only take about 10 minutes. You’ll answer a few questions on our safe & secure Wonolo & Stride site, get a personalized recommendation, and get enrolled. Along the way, Stride will let you know if you qualify for any subsidies (financial assistance from the government that you don’t need to pay back) to make sure your payments are as low as possible. On average, Wonoloers save $382 per month on health insurance through Stride. Oh, and you’ll have access to year-round, free phone, chat or email support.
Why are we doing this? Simple: we’re really glad to have you as part of the Wonolo community, and we want to be sure you and your loved ones have the coverage they need. We partnered with Stride to make that as easy for you as possible.
Here’s to staying happy and healthy in 2019!
Who is Stride, and what do you offer?
Stride helps you save time and money on insurance and taxes. We make it really simple to find the right plan for you at the lowest possible prices, and help you get enrolled in 10 minutes or less. Once you’ve got the coverage you need, our free mobile app makes it easy to track your mileage and expenses all year long so that you can maximize your tax deductions and lower your tax bill.
Who is eligible to enroll?
All Wonoloers are eligible to use Stride.
Can I enroll if I already have health insurance?
Yes! In fact, we recommend reviewing your options every year—you might find plans that give you more coverage and cost less. But remember, Open Enrollment - which takes place November 1 through December 15—is the only time of the year you can switch your health insurance plan.
Does Wonolo pay for my health insurance?
Wonolo works with Stride to make it easy to find the best insurance for you at the lowest possible prices, but you are responsible for the monthly payments. Don’t worry, though, Stride will help you find all of the ways to lower your payments, like checking to see if you’re eligible to receive any financial assistance in the form of subsidies.
Is Stride free?
Yes, always! You only pay for your monthly health insurance payments. You also get access to our award-winning team of licensed brokers who are here to help you with any insurance related questions year-round.
Is Stride an insurance company?
No, Stride is what’s called a “web broker.” That means we help you buy insurance from insurance companies. Stride’s technology searches for health insurance plans from every major health insurance company in your zipcode to find the best plan for your unique needs at the same prices you’ll find in the government exchanges.
Is my family eligible for health insurance benefits, too?
Yes! You can sign up other family members in your household on your plan.
If I stop working for an extended amount of time, will I lose access to my insurance?
Nope! After you enroll through Stride, as long as you make your monthly payments, you’ll keep your health insurance plan.
How can Stride help with me with my taxes?
Stride’s free mobile app makes it easy to track your mileage and expenses all year round, and shows you all of the things you can deduct based on your line of work. Get it here.
