How Much Does an Online Doctor Visit Cost?
New subscribers to our telemedicine service are sometimes initially unsure whether or not the monthly Online Doctor Visit cost of $19.95 per month will be worthwhile over the long term. While each visit is only $29.95 for members—a rate that even competes with the co-pays commonly charged by HMOs—the real savings you can expect to experience will be more than merely monetary.
In this article, we’ll highlight key ways telemedicine can improve your life, and how those improvements translate directly to savings in both time and cash.
- Our members can skip long drives to a physical doctor’s office.
With gas prices on the rise yet again, remote and rural patients can see significant savings by skipping a commute to a doctor’s office. Connecting to a physician via Online Doctor Visit from the comfort of your own home also means less wear and tear on your vehicle.
- Our members don’t have to miss valuable work hours.
In a perfect world, each of us would be able to attend medical appointments without worrying about losing paid work hours and watching our paychecks shrink. In the United States, though, this isn’t yet reality. However, Online Doctor Visit offers appointments when it works for you. Unlike traditional doctor’s offices, which are often open when most people are stuck at work, our services mean that you can connect with a qualified physician in the early morning, late in the evening, or on the weekend.
- Skip the long wait and the hassle of a traditional medical appointment.
We’ve all been there; your appointment was scheduled for 45 minutes ago, but you’re still sitting in the waiting room. They finally call your name, and you think the wait is over; instead, you find yourself waiting another 30 minutes before the doctor comes into the exam room to see you. Your doctor is feeling rushed, you’re irritated and possibly late to return to work or pick up your child, and you end up leaving the appointment feeling like you’ve spent two hours and you’re not sure your doctor even understands what you were trying to communicate!
With Online Doctor Visit, there’s no waiting around. Your appointment will begin when it’s scheduled to begin, and you’ll be able to connect directly with your physician from anywhere via your mobile device, tablet, or laptop. The physician will give you their undivided attention, allowing you to take the time necessary to explain the issue for which you’ve scheduled the appointment.
The traditional doctor visit can be relegated to memory, an irritation you used to have to endure. You can take charge of your health today by signing up for a membership with Online Doctor Visit.
- Patients with chronic illness are likely to see significant savings.
Anyone battling chronic illness knows that their condition drains them physically, mentally, emotionally, and even financially. Spending time and money on back-to-back medical appointments can begin leave patients feeling like their whole life has become consumed by their illness.
With Online Doctor Visit, patients with chronic illness can take advantage of affordable appointments, schedule appointments at convenient times, skip the physically exhausting process of going to a traditional medical office, and keep in touch with their providers via email and text messaging. Perhaps no other patient group can benefit more from telemedicine.
