                                            About Sesame

                                            What is Sesame?

                                            Sesame saves you time and money on doctor appointments, specialists, imaging, prescriptions, and more. Find top doctors near you across 80+ specialties and pay them directly to save up to 60% on prescription refills, skin consults, imaging, dentistry, therapy, labs, and more. Thousands of appointments are available today at unbeatable cash prices.

                                            Why is Sesame different?

                                            Sesame is the first direct-to-patient care marketplace that connects patients with real, quality doctors.

                                            Are doctors on Sesame board-certified?

                                            Yes, all doctors on Sesame are board-certified. Doctors and clinicians share their licensure, education history, and clean disciplinary record as a condition for participating on the platform. That means that any health care provider you meet with through Sesame is fully trained, with extensive experience and expertise.

                                            Does Sesame work with insurance?

                                            In short, you do not need insurance to use Sesame. Sesame offers transparent upfront prices for patients without insurance.

                                            Sesame services are paid directly, separate from health insurance.

                                            If your insurance includes a health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA), you can use your funds from these accounts to pay for care on Sesame. Some of these plans include a debit card you can use to pay upfront, and others require you to submit your receipt after your purchase.

                                            If your insurance includes out-of-network coverage and/or a deductible, you may be able to submit your receipt from Sesame for reimbursement. Eligibility is determined by your insurance company and will vary depending on your plan. And you can always use your insurance to pay for medications picked up at your local pharmacy. Our team is here to help you - call us at 1 (877) 947-6411 with any questions.

                                            Is my payment and medical information safe?

                                            Sesame uses Stripe, the most trusted, secure third-party payment platform in the world. Stripe is used by large technology platforms like Lyft, Etsy, and Open Table.

                                            Stripe keeps your payment information for all future purchases on their secure servers and no one else receives access to your payment information.

                                            Sesame’s systems and platforms are all HIPAA compliant.

                                            What is Sesame’s cancellation policy?

                                            Sesame’s cancellation policy makes booking, canceling, and rescheduling easy. Sesame will honor a full refund for any of our appointments when canceled within the following time constraints:

                                            - Any refund request more than 10 days after the scheduled visit.

                                            If you make a same-day appointment by mistake and need to cancel, Sesame will refund you if you request a cancellation within one hour of completing the purchase.
