As healthcare costs continue to skyrocket and coverage tightens, more and more Americans are looking for ways to cut down on their costs while still getting the care they need. This might seem like a nearly impossible task, but a growing trend has already helped thousands of people: telehealth and telemedicine.
Telemedicine is an online visit with your doctor over a webcam, phone, email, or any sort of telecommunication technology that lets you access medical care remotely. Not only can doctors teleconsult with their patients from nearly any place at any time, but also consult with each other electronically to better serve patients.
At SingleCare, we’ve partnered with American Well (Amwell), a national telehealth technology company, to power our online doctor services and to provide a simple way for members to set up a call with a doctor, dietician, or mental health specialist. Online doctor visits are just as effective as visiting a doctor’s office, with some added conveniences:
- Consult a doctor for just $44 a visit, less than the average cost of an office visit
- Complete your visit in as little as 15 minutes, plus have your prescriptions forwarded to the pharmacy after your call
- Have an online doctor visit on your phone or computer, from home or while on-the-go
- Access a doctor 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
To begin your online doctor visit, simply log in to your SingleCare account, and scroll to the “online doctor visit” section. Once you have created your online doctor visit account, you’ll be able to learn about the various providers on call, and easily start a visit anytime from the comfort and convenience of your phone or computer. There are no surprise charges and you are charged a flat fee per visit.
Though utilizing new technologies can sometimes be daunting, we’ve designed our online doctor experience to make sure anyone and everyone is comfortable using it! Feel better faster, for less by joining SingleCare today!
