No! Anyone can apply on Stride regardless of how many hours you work with your specific company or platform. This applies to those who earn income through Uber, Postmates, Doordash, Instacart, Grubhub, Darden, Gap, Care.com and many others!
Stride offers health insurance coverage through the individual marketplace which means eligibility is determined by a set of rules not dependent on employment with a specific company or a number of hours spent working for that company!
Thus, benefits through Stride are portable, meaning you can take them with you no matter which platform or company you work for.
While your hours won't be a factor in applying for coverage, there are still a few other marketplace rules you'll want to get familiar with.
