Costco to offer members $29 virtual care visits

Warehouse club company Costco will offer its members $29 virtual primary care visits through a partnership with healthcare marketplace Sesame, Bloomberg reported Sept. 25.

Members will also have access to $79 mental health visits and 10 percent off other medical services on the platform. The Sesame platform allows clinicians to set prices and patients to pay them directly instead of going through insurance. 

The news comes as Costco competitors, such as Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon and CVS Health, expand their healthcare offerings. 

The financial terms of the partnership between Costco and Sesame were not disclosed. The online medical platform is backed by Alphabet's venture unit.
