Amazon Care, the virtual health service it introduced in 2019, will be phased out by the end of the year. On Wednesday, the business informed Amazon Care staff of the decision.
Amazon Care began as a service for Seattle-based Amazon workers. It combined virtual health care services with the possibility of an in-home nurse visit. Just this past February, the firm expanded the program nationally, making it available to businesses in all 50 states that wished to give the service to their employees. Even as late as this month, Amazon was still extending the service, with a homepage indicating that it was adding mental health treatment through a relationship with mental health business Ginger.
