Tell me this scenario has happened to you. You think you MIGHT be REALLY sick. You have taken all the over the counter meds you can think of, you have made your mom’s lemon garlic tea concoction, you have slathered Vicks’ vapor rub everywhere…yet you still feel something brewing. Basically, you have two choices. A: call your Dr’s office and see if they can fit you in last minute( they can’t). Or B: go to Urgent care where you wait with all the other unfortunate souls for your number to come up only for the Doctor to tell you that you are NOT sick.

You’ve wasted that co-pay and your time.

Well, I solved that problem! I shared with you a few weeks ago that I signed up for HealthPlan USA.

Right before I went on my cruise last week, I had this constant cough and tickle in my throat.  It honestly felt like a case of bronchitis I always get this time of year. There was NO WAY I was about to let my cruise be ruined by bronchitis!  But! Before I rushed to the urgent care, or even my Dr’s office, I wanted a bit of advice.

I remembered that HealthPlan USA has Virtual Doctor Visits. With a Virtual Doctor visit, you can consult with a doctor by phone, secure video or the MDLive App. FOR FREE.  It was simple. I simply described my symptoms, how long I had them, and I was diagnosed with get this…Allergies.

Ya’ll!!!! I got off the phone, took an allergy pill and MAGICALLY I was fine.

No prescription needed, no co-pay for an office visit, no time out of my busy day for a long wait at the Urgent Care.  Mind blown, time AND money saved. I swear the Virtual Doctor visit is the best thing ever invented!

This health care plan seems to be quite a lifesaver especially in case of minor ailments as it happened in your case! I think with this pandemic on, telemedicine or virtual doctor will become more popular.
