Does Sesame work with my insurance?
Sesame is complementary to health insurance, helping you find affordable prices and save money on care for when your plan falls short.
Sesame works directly with doctors to determine the prices for their services while cutting out the middleman of insurance plans. This can lead to prices 60% less than comparable services on an insurance network.
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.
