Virtual visit? What's that?
A virtual visit is just that; a visit through a computer or phone. The nice thing about a virtual visit is that it is convenient and fast. They take place where you are. They may not take place at the exact time that you want though. So, you have to be flexible. But, hey! You won't necessarily have to wait in a pesky waiting room. I say, necessarily, because sometimes you will be referred to urgent care or back to your PCP.
I know when you call in, you will want your problem fixed right now, but that isn't what telemedicine is all about. It is more of a way to speak with a physician to get their opinion on what to do next. It doesn't mean that you will get a medication every time or that your problem is even going to be fixable virtually.
Visit cost is $50 for a 15 minute visit for non-members
Some things that can be done through virtual visits:
Urinary tract infection
Upper respiratory tract infections
Medication refills to get you to your next appointment with your PCP. This is only possible for certain medications, not all. It only entails up to a 30 day supply.
No controlled substances or muscle relaxers prescribed.
