For people seeking care
Getting started with Aster
You can use the Aster app to keep track of your pregnancy, communicate with your care team, book appointments, and receive insights on remote monitoring.
Aster works with your providers, such as midwives and OB/GYN doctors, to provide comprehensive care for your pregnancy and beyond. If you don’t have an existing provider, Aster can connect you with one in the Aster network.
You can use the Aster app to ask general questions with our AI messaging tool, browse a selection of educational content, and attend complimentary weekly midwife-led group sessions. Additionally, you can use Aster to search for in-network providers when you need to receive care.
Paying for care
The Aster app is always free to use. However, your specific providers may have their own policies regarding payments for medical care. Rest assured that all of our connected clinicians are in-network with major insurance companies.
Yes! Providers at Aster are in-network with major insurance companies.
Providers at Aster are also available for out-of-network care and set their own rate for care. Aster works with your providers to generate a superbill at the end of each month for you to file reimbursement claim with your insurance.
Your care team is available to answer your questions throughout the day in the Aster app. The availability of your specific providers may vary. Additionally, Aster offers an AI assistant that can provide you with answers sourced from our medically verified library of content at any time. In case of an emergency, please contact your provider's emergency line or call 911.
In addition to standard, in-person visits throughout your pregnancy, you can also send messages and book telehealth appointments with a midwife from your care team. Aster also offers weekly group sessions, led by a licensed midwife, to answer common questions and provide supplemental support.
Aster empowers providers with world-class technology to provide personalized patient care, such as remote patient monitoring, patient education, and AI-assisted triaging. Aster doesn’t employ medical providers or dictate how they run their practices. Providers also join Aster to get additional support, such as help working with insurance companies, submitting claims, and connecting with new patients like you.
