On-Demand Care for $49 or Less

Colds, the flu and yes, the new coronavirus, can sneak up on you. In the early stages, you might be wondering if your symptoms are bad enough to schedule a visit to the doctor. Or they are so bad, you don’t feel up to making the trip. You also may be worried that you might spread your illness or pick up a bug from another sick person in the waiting room. 

A video visit (also called a virtual visit) is the perfect option for many urgent care situations. Using technology similar to Skype or FaceTime, you can be seen by a medical professional face-to-face through your smartphone, tablet or computer equipped with a web camera. Depending on your medical concern, the provider can diagnose you, suggest follow-up care and prescribe medication when appropriate. Best of all, they are available to see you 24 hours a day, every day of the year! Follow these steps to get on the road to recovery.
