Partnering with Stride to Bring Shoppers Affordable Insurance

Tens of thousands of people shop and deliver with Instacart across North America. These individuals shop for different reasons and play different roles outside of being a shopper — they are parents, entrepreneurs, students, and so much more.

Shoppers don’t just use Instacart to support their own families; they’re also supporting the countless families who rely on them to deliver the groceries and essential items they need. As valued members of the Instacart community, we want to be sure that shoppers are supported at all stages of life, especially when they need care the most.

That’s why Instacart has teamed up with Stride, a company that makes it easy to find affordable insurance plans built for shoppers like you.

Stride offers several different forms of insurance, tailored to individuals so you can find the best solution for your needs. The plans you sign up for are available to you the very next month, so you don’t need to wait the standard open enrollment period that most insurance plans require.
