With “social distancing” in full effect, you might wonder how you’re supposed to visit your physician. In 2020, there are now many ways to see a doctor (albeit, maybe not your doctor). Here are a few options:

CVS
Access a video visit with a medical professional through the CVS website or app. This option, available through the pharmacy’s Minute Clinic, is available 24 hours a day, and prices vary according to insurance plans. 

 

Novant
Novant offers both e-visits (you write your symptoms on a questionnaire) and video visits (you speak with a medical professional through videochatting software). E-visits start at $35 and are, obviously, available at all times of the day. Video visits start at $50, and wait times may vary.

 

Atrium Health
This service, like most others, is available 24 hours a day. No appointment is needed for this service. Just download the Virtual Visit app and digitally visit a medical professional. However, if you’re scheduling a visit for a child, you must make an appointment for a pediatric virtual visit. The visits start at $49.

 

Teladoc
To access a slew of medical professionals in the Teladoc network, download the Teladoc app, visit the website or call 1-800-Teladoc. Costs vary based on insurance plans.
