9 Times Telehealth Can Come in Handy

Doctors on LiveHealth Online can provide advice and treatment options for a variety of health concerns — including many common conditions. While your local doctor or urgent care clinic can also provide these services, there are times when a telehealth visit may better meet your or your family’s needs. Here are nine occasions to consider using telehealth:

When you don’t have time: You don’t have to carve time out of your busy schedule to drive to and from a doctor’s office or urgent care center — or sit in a reception area. A LiveHealth Online visit lasts 10–15 minutes, and you spend all of it one-on-one with the doctor.

When it’s after hours: You can see a board-certified doctor anytime, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Holidays? Middle of the night? Weekends? Our doctors are always available.

When you can’t get away: No need to call a babysitter or leave your school or office to travel to the doctor; telehealth is as close as your computer, smartphone or tablet.

When you can’t see your regular doctor: If you love your usual doctor but they’re unavailable for two weeks, a LiveHealth Online doctor can see you now. And if you’re on the road, we can help with things like short-term prescription refills.

When you just feel miserable: Instead of getting out of your pajamas and into street clothes, you can fix yourself a cup of tea and wrap up in a cozy comforter for your telehealth visit. No more sitting in waiting rooms, trying to avoid other patients’ germs.

When you need treatment fast: If you’re aching, itching or sneezing like mad, you want relief as quickly as possible. Telehealth is on demand; just log on and have a visit. If a prescription is appropriate, the doctor can send it to a local pharmacy, right away.

When you need expert advice: If you’re wondering what that rash is, what to do about medication side effects, whether your child is well enough to go to school, or a host of other questions, doctors on LiveHealth Online can give you expert answers and ease your mind.

When cost is a concern: Medical and allergy visits cost $59 or less, depending on your insurance. You can pay on your own if you don’t have insurance, and you always know the price before you start a visit. There are no contracts, subscriptions or other fees.

When you need a simple solution: You can create an account and have a visit in just a few minutes using the LiveHealth Online app for iPhone or Android, or from the website. If you have difficulty, our Customer Service team is available 24/7. Just give us a call at 1-888-LiveHealth (1-888-548-3432).
