Scenario 1. You’re home sick but all your kids are bouncing off the walls NOT sick. You’ve got to take care of them so how are you going to take care of yourself? You don’t want to get them all in the car to only wait in a doctor’s office for yourself. We all know how that turns out.
Scenario 2. You have a little one home sick. Maybe you don’t want to drag them out to sit in a doctor’s office full of even more germs. Or maybe you’ve got more than one kid and you won’t want to bring ALL of them to the doctor’s office including the sick one. (Raises hand!)
What if I told you that now there is a way to see a doctor FROM home – and that it only costs $25 with no insurance required? I’m so excited to share with you more information about SSM Health Virtual Visits.
What is SSM Health Virtual Visits?
SSM Health virtual visits is an online service that connects you to a doctor using your computer, phone or tablet. This is so convenient if you’re not able to leave the house or work yet need to see a doctor that day. During operating hours, you’ll see a doctor within 60 minutes – and usually within 15 minutes!
SSM Health virtual visits are best used for non-urgent health conditions like a cold, flu, sinus infection, pink eye, urinary infections, heartburn, and allergies. They can also help treat select children’s services, including ear infections, rashes, and head lice.
Even better, SSM Health virtual visits are only $25, no insurance required. For me, this is lower than a cost of an urgent care visit PLUS I’m able to do it from home.
How To Use SSM Health Virtual Visits
Using SSM Health virtual visits is easy too. To get started, you’ll head to the SSM Health Virtual Visits website on your computer on mobile device where you’ll start your visit.
Then, you will fill out a questionnaire about yourself and your symptoms. You can get as specific as you want because this will help the doctor to diagnose you better. There’s even photos that will pop up to help you better describe where the pain or problem is!
If a prescription is needed, the doctor will send a prescription to the pharmacy of your choice. In the case of the doctor not being able to address your concern, you will be sent to a physical SSM location.
It really is THAT easy. So forget about those scenarios at the beginning of this post where as a mom, you ignore your symptoms and try and go about your daily tasks because you don’t have time for a doctor’s visit or where you have to pack up your sick child and your healthy kids to go sit in a germy office! Take advantage of SSM Health virtual visits – and tell everyone you know!
