DoorDash Dashers are classified as gig workers or independent contractors, and full medical and health benefits are not guaranteed. But, there are still options in place that help provide peace of mind and security while working as a Dasher.

Medical and health benefits at DoorDash

DoorDash partners with Stride Health, an insurance coverage company that connects individuals with health plans covered under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Stride Health acts as the liaison between you and a medical insurance provider with options that are both affordable and robust.

Sad doordash looks down on a person with a misdemeanor from 7yrs ago and won't hire them. Over looks that from that misdemeanor 7yrs ago to present never been in trouble again. Able to do deliveries for a multi billion dollar company for 10yrs delivering thousands of dollars of packages daily. But not allowed to deliver food. To make doordash and myself money. Look at the positive in people. Not look down on people.
