About PlushCare

Simply put, our mission is to challenge the status quo by providing every American convenient and affordable access to the best trained doctors in the country.

To accomplish this, we’ve set out on a mission to unite the brightest and most caring physicians with patients eager to receive the affordable and convenient care we provide. To date, we’ve recruited top-trained physicians and attracted tens of thousands of patients eager to join us and change the way healthcare is delivered.

In order to ensure we truly did provide care to everyone, we partnered with the California School-Based Health Alliance and created #GetHealthGiveHealth – a program designed to help underserved children gain access to the health services they need to succeed in life. Every time a patient books an appointment with a PlushCare physician, we provide underserved children with access to a vaccination, check up, or whatever health service they need to live a healthy and productive life.
