GOJEK is partnering with Singapore-based startup Doctor Anywhere to offer online and offline medical consultation services to its drivers in the city-state.

According to a statement, GOJEK will pay a subscription fee to Doctor Anywhere, allowing drivers to video consult a Singapore-registered doctor from April 1. Drivers will also be eligible for discounts of up to 40 per cent for various services provided by wellness partners on Doctor Anywhere’s network.

GOJEK recently announced a partnership with Gigacover to offer prolonged medical insurance coverage for its drivers. The company promises to introduce new partnerships and benefits in the coming weeks.

Since its beta launch in Singapore in December, GOJEK has appointed a former National Research Foundation (NRF) executive as its Singapore general manager, secured DBS as a strategic partner, and rolled out its services across the entire city.

During DEALSTREETASIA‘s PE-VC Jakarta Summit, GOJEK’s co-founder Kevin Aluwi noted the positive response to its entry into the city-state, the home-ground of its archrival Grab.

Aluwi shared: “I think out of all the country launches, Singapore has been by far the most surprising in terms of reception, both in terms of demand from riders and supply of drivers. The desire to have a more competitive and fair market was overwhelming.”

GOJEK currently only offers ride-hailing services in Singapore.

Earlier this month, GOJEK officially launched three services in Bangkok – ride-hailing, food delivery and courier services – under the brand GET. It also offers ride-hailing and food delivery in Vietnam. The Indonesian unicorn plans to enter Malaysia, Myanmar and Cambodia this year.
