Introducing Galileo Medical: Quality, affordable health benefits for freelancers

As a freelancer, you gravitate towards independence and autonomy: the freedom to make your own schedule, choose projects that interest you, and work with clients you like. What if there was a health solution equally as flexible?

Galileo is a digital medical practice—in short, your doctor’s office, available 24/7 on your phone—that makes quality care more convenient, affordable, and easy to use. All care takes place on the Galileo app. Here’s why freelancers love Galileo:

  1. World-class doctors
    Good care starts with great doctors, and Galileo has a whole full-time team of them, working together to treat you. Every case has a built-in second opinion from multiple experts.
  2. Breadth of medical care
    Get treated for virtually any issue in one place: the Galileo app, where 90% of cases are treated without requiring an office visit. With access to experts in women’s health, mental health, internal medicine, cardiology, and more, you’ll save time, money, and hassle.
  3. Flexible care options
    Galileo Medical is available 24/7 in all 50 states, caring for patients by message or video, in English or Spanish. Working remotely and dealing with a bad asthma flareup? Freelancing on the road and need a prescription refill—at midnight? Galileo can help.
