We’re going to get Bezos Care.
Yes I should have A LOT more info on it, but suffice to say for now I’ve been hearing for some time (and more lately) that Amz is now going full bore into health care. And not just “test the waters” level.
It’s all been on the back end at this point, but I believe should mostly be public info.

I needed more info than what you provided.
I googled up Bezo Care and found this article from Japan Times.
It claims that Bezos is no longer in partnership with others in regard to a particular health care plan they were working on.
Does it mean that Bezos is going at it alone or that he has a better plan? I do not know.
All I do here is post the most recent link I found on the topic pf Bezos and Health Care.

“Amazon Care” from bezosbub; he doesn’t need Buffett or Chase. It’s all about the branding, and everybody loves them some Amazon! Maybe their doctors will make house calls and bring you you all your shit too!

(Apologies for not checking for their recent updates before making OP): Bezos may continue to do Amazon Care on a small-ish scale, but they (Haven) simply couldn’t figure out how to make the front end make sense for them on a large scale, due to the thin margins.
However, we may expect that Amz will be getting bigger into health delivery services (as @zooka points), as well as AWS quite potentially becoming the major player on the back end. (Hopefully doing a better job than Oracle did w ACA.)

There is SO much inefficiency in the US health care system that it probably was only a matter of time before he got involved.

Going forward, the three companies are expected to continue to focus on boosting the health care offerings for their own employees, especially as the Covid-19 vaccine becomes available to a wider group of Americans…
Meanwhile, Amazon is ramping up its own efforts in the health care business. The company already owns online pharmacy PillPack and recently launched plans to ship prescriptions to Prime members.
Berkshire Hathaway, run by billionaire Warren Buffett, has recently been looking for bargains in the health care sector.
Berkshire disclosed in November that it bought shares of Covid-19 vaccine developer and Big Pharma leader Pfizer (PFE) in the third quarter. Buffett’s firm also invested in AbbVie (ABBV), Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Merck (MRK).
