Virtual Urgent Care
Illness or injury can strike suddenly. Virtual Urgent Care gives you and your family access to medical help 24/7/365 via telephone or web, any time, day or night. Using the nationwide telehealth service and national network of US-licensed, board-certified medical providers, you can connect with a provider online from any location, and receive a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan, including prescriptions for common medications, when necessary. While telehealth can help when you need medical attention after-hours, when your regular doctor is not available, or while traveling; it does not replace seeing a doctor in-person for your annual office visit.

Virtual Urgent Care is an easy and trusted way to request visits with board-certified medical providers on demand for minor illnesses and injuries. Get the care you need, when and where you need it when:
- You’re not feeling your best
- You need a short-term prescription
- It’s in the middle of the night/weekend
- You’re traveling and away from home
This service delivers a simple and convenient method to speak with your medical provider through an app on your mobile device or computer. Your provider will review your medical history and perform a video exam or phone consultation within minutes. You will then receive a medical record and care instructions electronically, with any necessary prescriptions sent to your local pharmacy. If you require urgent care you will be immediately referred to the nearest emergency room or urgent care center. The entire telehealth visit is completed on average within 30 minutes or less.
If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency or experience a physical injury that cannot be handled over video chat, please call 911 or visit your closest Emergency Room.
No, the telehealth program is designed to supplement care when your regular doctor is not available. For example, in the evening, on holidays and weekends, or when you cannot get an appointment or connect with your regular provider. A primary care doctor or specialist is still the best choice for ongoing treatment and care.
