Gig Wage, the 1099 payments platform for independent workers, partners with VURV Health – the most advanced Discount Medical Organization in America making health care more affordable and accessible for everyone.
The partnership with Gig Wage gives gig workers simple access to one of the largest networks in America, with or without insurance all via one mobile app.
Access to affordable, convenient health care options is a problem for independent workers. Even basic services remain elusive for many. VURV Health solves this by providing health care savings and transparent pricing for common wellness issues.
"We are thrilled to partner with VURV Health to provide independent workers access to high-quality health care options. Our mission is to drive economic empowerment for all and access to affordable and convenient health care is a cornerstone of that mission. This partnership continues Gig Wage’s vision for building the financial safety net for the 1099 economy.”

Here's 3 benefits from the Gig Wage and VURV Health partnership:
Gig Wage users will now have dedicated access to a range of options, including:
Through the VURV Health mobile app, workers find local providers and book appointments in a few taps. It's an easy way to manage health care on their own terms.
There are no health checks required with VURV Health’s network. A simple monthly subscription means workers then pay the provider at the appointment. Flexibility is essential for 1099 workers. They may have different health care preferences than W-2 employees.
With this type of program, independent workers receive the services they actually need. It's freedom and control. No one wants to worry about how they’ll find and afford a wide-range of health care options or deal with surprise medical bills.
"At VURV Health, we are dedicated to providing lower cost and flexible health care solutions that meet the unique needs of independent workers. Our partnership with Gig Wage represents an important step forward in our mission to improve health care access for independent contractors.”
– Drew Golden, Founder & CEO at VURV Health
Independent workers should have access to the services they need to stay healthy. All without sacrificing their desire to remain independent. This partnership shows why only innovation meets the gig economy's challenges head on. We look forward to the positive impact on the lives and wellbeing of independent workers.
