Can You Use Health Insurance For Online Doctor Appointments?
Whether or not you can use health insurance for an online appiontment will depend on the telemedicine company. PlushCare accepts both insured and uninsured patients. We accept all major health insurance companies.
That said, not all telemedicine companies accept insurnace and some are known to have high appointment fees, so be sure to check before you book an appiontment, or just book with us!
With the high cost of healthcare, having questions about whether or not you will be able to see a doctor when you need one can be a major concern. Many people are starting to use telemedicine in order to cut down on health care costs while also being able to conveniently speak with a doctor without having to sit in germy waiting rooms for long wait times.
However, even with a lower price point, you may be wondering if you can use your health insurance plan for online doctor’s appointments.
While not all telemedicine services accept health insurance, PlushCare offers the ability for patients with or without insurance to receive world-class care by our physicians. If you don’t have health insurance, we even offer an affordable $99 flat-fee which takes the stress out of figuring out how you will afford a large medical bill.
