How is Galileo different from insurance?

Galileo is not insurance. We are a health care service that makes it easy for you to text or video chat with a team of board-certified doctors 24/7 via mobile app. In a traditional health care model, a provider offers medical services that may be paid for, partially or fully, by an insurer—most times, you cover the difference. Galileo is the provider, and your membership (whether paid for by you, your employer, or your health plan) covers the cost of all care that is conducted within the app.
