Find ways to make your healthcare convenient this summer!
This new form of treatment can offer preventative care, to minimal healthcare treatment; including filling of prescriptions when deemed necessary. Imagine, in the middle of the night, you or your child wake up sick. The only option available is an emergency room – meaning high medical costs, leaving the house in the middle of the night and spending several hours to fully receive treatment. But now there is another option, that removes the negative connotations associated with healthcare – including the long wait time. Speak with a Provider or Doctor 24/7 and get peace of mind for a minimum cash pay amount of $50.
Keep in mind not all Telemedicine services offer the same level of care. Some options are considered ‘Nurse Hotlines,’ and they may not be available 24/7. Other options, the price becomes dependent on the time of day treatment is received.
