Amazon Reportedly Considering New Subscription Programs in Grocery and Healthcare

Amazon is said to be exploring the possibility of launching two new subscription programs, one in the grocery sector and one in healthcare. This information was reported by Seeking Alpha, which cited an insider article. The proposed memberships would be stand-alone offerings.

Additionally, the company is considering integrating the primary care service of One Medical, a healthcare organization owned by Amazon, with its existing Prime subscription program. However, the company has declined to comment on this report.

The introduction of these new plans is rumored to take place by the end of this year. Amazon acquired One Medical in July 2022, with the intention of revolutionizing the healthcare industry. One Medical is known for its hybrid approach, combining in-office and virtual primary care services.

Amazon aims to enhance the quality of healthcare experiences and save people time in their daily lives by leveraging technology. One Medical provides in-person, digital, and virtual care services.

In terms of the grocery sector, Amazon executives have previously stated that they expect continued growth in this area. With the expansion of its fulfillment network, Amazon plans to increase the number of grocery items available for same-day delivery, offering more convenience to its customers.

While Amazon currently has a significant business in nonperishable goods, the company recognizes the importance of a strong physical presence to cater to customer needs.

In other news, Amazon has announced its upcoming Prime Big Deal Days event, scheduled to take place from October 10 to October 11. This event will offer exclusive discounts on a wide range of products for Prime members. Prime Day, a similar event held in July, saw Amazon sell over 375 million items worldwide in just two days.
