iPSE-U.S. Expands Healthcare Offering to Independent Workers in Michigan

DETROIT, MICHIGAN, USA, December 9, 2021 / -- iPSE-U.S., The Association of Independent Workers (iPSE), an association providing the independent workforce with an equal voice in public policy and equal access to benefits and services, announces a newly expanded healthcare offering, in partnership with Sidecar Health, to Independent Workers in the State of Michigan.

With a long-standing view that people should work the way they want without putting themself, their business, or their legacy at risk, iPSE is a proponent and advocate for the independent workforce. Over the past several years, iPSE has partnered with iWorker Innovations, the association's managed services provider, to secure benefits and services specifically designed for contractors. Yet, healthcare offerings designed to meet the needs of the independent workforce, and not attached to traditional employment, have been lacking- until now. 

The iPSE partnership with Sidecar Health is timely given the rising cost of healthcare. Unlike traditional insurance, which sits between the patient and the doctor, Sidecar Health members pay for care directly. As a result, members can see any doctor and may save 40% or more† on health care costs. The plans are high quality, flexible, and affordable. Members know what their plan will cover before they head to the doctor, and the plans work with any doctor. After receiving care, members pay their doctor directly with the Sidecar Health VISA benefit card.

Sidecar Health Access Plan has been available through iPSE in Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio, Utah, for just over a year, and now Camden's home state of Michigan.

"The opportunity to bring healthcare to the independent workforce has been our goal at iPSE since inception," notes Dr. Carl Camden, founder and President of iPSE. As the former CEO of Kelly, a workforce and staffing solutions company, Camden, states, "I realized that access to benefits for this unique workforce was limited, so I founded iPSE determined to change the policies and practices that limited their access. To have a viable healthcare offering for independent workers is a vision come true." 

iPSE-U.S. is pleased to announce that enrollment is now open in Michigan.
