Legacy Health and GoHealth Urgent Care are teaming up to provide healthcare options for Uber drivers.

The partnership will provide tailored healthcare services to Uber drivers at 18 co-branded centers.

Some of the services include free flu shots, physical wellness classes and medical screening.

The initiative marks a significant change in the way companies like Uber provide access to healthcare.

"I'm doing well by doing good, I guess. I need a flu shot and I'm sure Uber needs me not to be sick when all the nastiness comes on. I'm happy to get one," said Uber driver, Matthew Workman.

The initiative will have an online service cutting down waiting times for patients.

Families of Uber drivers can also take advantage of some services.
