  • Amazing doctors!

    5 stars

    So happy I came across this app. I have a cold and I didn’t want to spend two hours at urgent care. I was able to get an appointment the same day. Doctor was very friendly and efficient and the best thing is I didn’t have to leave my home.

  • Plushcare Please Don't Change A Thing!

    5 stars

    I was able to schedule a same day appointment online with the doctor of my choice. I had received some abnormal lab results that needed to be reviewed. I was contacted via email a few hours later by a customer service rep, double checking the date of my labwork to make sure they had the results on file. My doctor was kind, reassuring, informative and very helpful. He changed some of my scripts and sent them to my pharmacy that evening. I received an email copy of lab orders, email confirmation my prescriptions had been ordered and an appointment for a follow up pre-scheduled (that I could also change if needed online). I then received a personal email from my doctor that was warm, reassuring and encouraging, inviting me to contact him if any other questions came to mind. I came to Plushcare for routine meds when COVID first hit, but have now chosen a primary care physician who is the kindest, most concerned and helpful doctor I have ever worked with.

  • Very convenient from the comfort of…

    5 stars

    Very convenient from the comfort of your home, and flexible appointment availability! The doctor actually made the right (and critical) diagnosis and sent me to my specialist, who confirmed her online diagnosis. Very, very satisfied.

  • Five star service from the comfort of my home

    5 stars

    I was debating whether going to an Emergency room or having a dispatch physician come to my home for an eye infection. I have a toddler and with everything going on with Covid I couldn’t take the chances of going to the ER. Dispatch health doesn’t have any appointments until typically the following day. After doing some research I came across PlushCare and opted for a very well rated physician. They had appointments that same morning! The call was great. The doctor was extremely knowledgeable. He explained the care plan thoroughly and had a very pleasant personality. He sent my prescription to the pharmacy even before we finished our call. My toddler was in the background quietly playing. How great that I was able to do this doctor visit from the comfort of my own home.

  • My fantastic experience with Plush Care!

    5 stars

    My experience with Plush Care was amazing. I was able to get an appointment within 30 min of first logging in & my physician was extremely helpful & knowledgeable. I have already shared my experience with family & friends. It was the most relaxed, convenient appointment I've ever had & will definitely be using this service again.

Online doctor benefits

Online doctor visits are more convenient, comfortable, and accessible than traditional in-person visits. Learn just some of the ways an online doctor can make your life easier, offering many benefits and providing top quality healthcare that works around you.

Accessible healthcare, wherever you are

Accessible healthcare, wherever you are

With an online doctor, you can access medical care anywhere with a stable Internet connection. Being able to talk to a doctor online on your phone or computer means that you have more choices for care and treatment, especially if you are in a remote area or not currently near a medical facility or urgent care center.

You can also book a virtual doctor appointment while traveling domestically, saving you from having to look for a doctor in an unfamiliar location. We offer easy access to virtual primary care nationwide, with our licensed online doctors available to help patients in all 50 U.S. states.

Convenient care that fits your schedule

Convenient care that fits your schedule

One of the advantages of virtual doctors is that online doctor appointments offer greater convenience and scheduling flexibility. A telehealth appointment means no more waiting rooms or time-consuming commutes. We often have same-day online medical consultations available, allowing you to find a time that works for your busy schedule.

Our doctors are typically available 24/7, including evenings, weekends, and holidays. Convenient telehealth services empower you to get the personalized care and medical assistance you need, whenever you need it.

Faster prescriptions, refills, and referrals

Faster prescriptions, refills, and referrals

During your online doctor telemedicine visit, you can request prescriptions, refills, and referrals right when you need them, conveniently, from your phone or computer. During an online medical consultation with one of our licensed, board-certified doctors, they will review your medical history and work with you to discuss treatment options.

If prescribed, your doctor will electronically send your prescription medication or refill straight to your local pharmacy for pick up. Our doctors can also easily order tests to a lab near you or refer you for further care with a local specialist.

Timely, accessible preventive and ongoing care

Timely, accessible preventive and ongoing care

The convenience and accessibility of online care makes it easy to take advantage of preventive care and address symptoms and concerns before they become larger health issues. Simply meet with your doctor online whenever and wherever it is convenient for you to access preventive care benefits, often free of cost with health insurance, saving you a trip to the doctor’s office.

You can choose the best PlushCare physician for your medical needs and continue to see them, making it easy to manage ongoing conditions on your schedule. Conveniently keep track of your health, progress, and medical information since you can access your records online at any time.

High quality doctors

Affordable care, regardless of insurance status

Affordable care, regardless of insurance status

Whether you have health insurance or not, online doctor visits are much more affordable than the average in-person doctor's visit. We accept most major health insurance plans, so many patients’ online doctor consultation appointments are completely covered by healthcare providers. For uninsured patients, the cost per online doctor visit is only $129, well below the average in-person visit cost. We aim to keep online doctor costs affordable and accessible for our patients.

Online doctor FAQs

  • How much does an online doctor cost?

    The cost of an online doctor will vary depending on the telehealth platform and your insurance status. We accept patients with or without insurance. The average insured patient pays less than $25 to speak with one of our physicians. For patients without insurance, there is a $129 fee for an online doctor appointment, much less than the average health clinic.

  • How do I see a doctor online?

    You can see a doctor online by using a telehealth platform like ours. Our world-class doctors can answer your medical questions, make a professional diagnosis, and prescribe medications by phone or computer after an online medical consultation.

    Our licensed doctors can treat patients in all 50 states, are available 24/7, 360 days a year, and are all graduates from the top 50 U.S. medical schools.

  • Can an online doctor diagnose you?

    Yes, an online doctor can diagnose you. Online doctors work great for treating non-emergency conditions such as minor bacterial infections, the cold and flu, and many mental health conditions. They are also useful for managing chronic conditions and getting prescriptions filled and refilled, without having to go to a doctor’s office in person.

  • Do I need insurance to see an online doctor?

    Whether or not you need health insurance to see an online doctor will depend on the telehealth platform. We accept patients with or without health insurance. If you do not have health insurance, you can still book an appointment with one of our board certified online doctors and receive treatment. We charge a fee of $129 for an appointment without insurance.

  • Can an online doctor write a prescription?

    You need to have a consultation with a medical doctor before you can receive prescription medication. This can be done through an online doctor appointment via phone or video chat. If the doctor decides that you may benefit from a prescription, they will electronically send one to the pharmacy of your choice.

    Our online doctors can write prescriptions and prescription refills and will electronically send your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice, following your online appointment. They can also provide you with a doctor’s note, if necessary.
