Have you ever heard of Telemedicine, also known as, Virtual Visits?
If not, allow us to introduce you to the next best thing since #sliced #bread! If you’ve ever woken up in the morning feeling as sick as a dog, but your doctor doesn’t have time to squeeze you in and sitting in the waiting room of an urgent care center makes you feel even more ill, then Virtual Visits are for you!
A Virtual Visit gives you 24/7, 7 days a week access to doctors via skype or FaceTime. These doctors are available to treat minor illnesses and injuries from the comfort of your own home!
And did you know that most insurance carriers offer this service through your insurance plan? It’s as simple as downloading an app onto your phone, creating an account and logging in! From there, you’ll be able to enter in your symptoms and medical history and choose a doctor that best suits your needs.
Keep in mind that each Virtual Visit typically charges a copay, but this cost might just be lower than the cost of your local Urgent Care Clinic.
Call your insurance carrier today to get all the #facts so that you can make an #informed #decision the next time you’re feeling #under the #weather!
As always, reach out to Clevenger Insurance at 574-267-2181 for any other questions or concerns regarding Telemedicine!
