Why Telemedicine Can Save You Time & Money
At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we’re always looking for ways to offer convenient healthcare services to our patients. That’s why we have urgent care centers located across New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts that are open every day of the year. And that’s also why we’ve expanded our services to offer telemedicine, allowing our patients to receive top-quality healthcare from the comfort of home. After all, who wants to leave their cozy couch when they’re feeling under the weather? With telemedicine, you can save the time, effort, and money required of a typical visit to your doctor’s office.
With telemedicine, receiving medical care for aches and pains has never been easier! All you need is an Internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or webcam-enabled computer. Our telemedicine services are available every day of the week, from early in the morning to late in the evening, to accommodate your schedule. Best of all, most patients can be seen within 15 minutes of booking the Virtual Visit.
Visiting the doctor can sometimes be a logistical nightmare—you may have to coordinate childcare for your children or try to fit in the visit between work meetings. With telemedicine, you don’t have to worry about any of that. You can simply book the visit for the time that works with your schedule and talk to us right from home, easy as that.
How does telemedicine save money? It’s simple: You can receive the healthcare services you need as quickly as possible so that you can start feeling better sooner. This may reduce the amount of time you’re out of work with an illness. What’s more, most health insurance plans now cover telemedicine and PhysicianOne Urgent Care can bill your insurance carrier directly for this service.
And for busy individuals who may have had to take off work or needed someone to watch their children to visit their doctor, telemedicine is also a money-saver. It’s a win/win for almost everyone!
