Tap in to your summer survival kit: Try a Virtual Visit.
Are you gearing up for summer fun? Don’t let an unexpected stomach bug or bug bite leave you sitting in a busy waiting room.
There’s no fun in that.
Instead, you have another option for health care: a Virtual Visit.
Help whenever, wherever.
A Virtual Visit lets you video chat with a board-certified doctor on your mobile device, tablet or computer.* The doctor can give you a diagnosis — and even write a prescription if needed.**
There’s no appointment needed. And this service is available 24/7. With your UnitedHealthcare plan, your cost is $50 or less.***
Use a Virtual Visit for minor medical needs like these:
- Bladder or urinary tract infection
- Colds or cough
- Sinus problems
- Sore throat
Already registered? That’s great!
You’re ready to save both time and money. An estimated 25 percent of emergency room visits could be treated with a Virtual Visit — bringing a potential $1,700 cost down to $50.****
All-star care you can trust.
Virtual Visit physicians are network providers. They have an average patient satisfaction rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars.
Helpful hint: Before your visit, have the following items handy:
- Health plan ID card
- Credit card
- Pharmacy location
