Lyft Explores Health Care

Business Insider reports that ride-share company Lyft is pursuing the healthcare market.

On Thursday, the company revealed an expanded partnership with payers Blue Cross Blue Shiel and Humana.

The partnerships allow Lyft access to provide nonemergency medical transport (NEMT) to BCBS and Humana members enrolled in Medicare Advantage.

Medicare Advantage is a type of health insurance offered by private insurers to consumers over the age of 65.

It is offered as an alternative to the government's traditional Medicare program.

Lyft also announced new tools to facilitate NEMT for older consumers.

This includes automated phone calls for users without a mobile phone.
