Summon Drivers: Stay Healthy With Special Insurance Rates!
We’re announcing an exclusive perk for all Summon (formerly InstantCab) drivers: access to the best health insurance plans in California at discounted rates! We teamed up with SimplyInsured, an online health insurance manager, to make available affordable health insurance for all our drivers and their families. Summon drivers can instantly get insurance quotes, view available plans, and sign up for insurance.
Because drivers for Summon and competing services are not employed by the transportation app companies, they often lack access to quality affordable health insurance. This is especially a problem for Personal drivers, who, unlike Taxi drivers, don’t have the support system of a taxi company.
Our partnership with SimplyInsured is designed to address this problem. Although the cost of health insurance premiums and any associated fees would be the driver’s responsibility, having access to affordable health care means that more people will have the flexibility to join and remain in this industry.
More than half of our drivers fall into the 30-49 age bracket. A 30-year-old Summon driver could get an Anthem Blue Cross insurance plan for a $250 monthly premium that includes prescription drug, preventive care, mental health, and pregnancy coverage.
We care about making drivers feel safe, happy, and comfortable on and off the road. We encourage our drivers to take charge of their health by purchasing insurance for themselves and their families.
People interested in driving with Summon can sign up here today! In addition to the Bay Area, we are accepting applications from drivers in Los Angeles, New York, and Boston.
