Costco is offering outpatient healthcare services to members for as low as $29 through a new partnership with Sesame, a healthcare marketplace that connects healthcare providers with consumers. The new service does not accept health insurance. Sesame said in a statement that this allows it to offer low prices.

Costco members can receive discount pricing on a range of healthcare services nationwide, virtually or in-person with a provider, Sesame said. These include:

  • Virtual primary care for $29
  • Health check-ups that include a standard lab panel and a virtual follow-up consultation with a provider for $72
  • Virtual mental health therapy for $79
  • 10% off of all other Sesame services including in-person appointments
