Virtual Doctor Visits Safely From Home

Doctor visit right from my phone

As we are all figuring out how to navigate through a pandemic, I know one thing is for sure, we are sticking a little closer to home these days. I’ve mastered grocery shopping through delivery services and curbside pick-ups for all the essentials. The thought of one of us getting sick and going to a clinic, has me feeling a little uneasy. It’s truly the last place I want to go right now.

I’m so grateful to have learned about SSM Virtual visits. For $25 {no insurance needed} you can have a virtual doctor appointment from the comfort and safety of your own home. If one of kids complains about ear pain, or has red, itchy eyes, I know I can get my questions answered in an easy and convenient way right from home.

How it Works

  1. Complete an online questionnaire {5-15 minutes} from your smart phone or home computer based on what a provider would ask during an in-person visit. You may be asked to submit photos for better care. From your mobile device, it will look as simple as this:
Select A Reason For Your Visit
Answer Some Basic Questions

2. If during normal business hours {9am – 7:30pm Monday-Friday and 10am – 4:30pm Saturday and Sunday} you will receive a video visit or phone call from an SSM health provider. Usually within 15 minutes – but always less than 60 minutes. **Expect follow-up first thing in the morning if the visit was started after hours.

3. A treatment plan from an SSM provider will be discussed over the phone or video visit. If a prescription is necessary it will immediately be sent to your pharmacy.

How east does this sound? A doctor appointment from the safety of your home with a treatment plan within an hour.
