Getting well is easier and cheaper than ever this flu season thanks to Virtual Visits with CoxHealth.

Now until March 31, patients who are treated for flu-like symptoms via CoxHealth’s Virtual Visits can be seen for $20.

It’s a flat fee available to anyone who needs to be treated for issues such as fever, chills, cough and aches, regardless of insurance.

CoxHealth says it also cuts down on the risk of spreading the flu.

Anyone wishing to be seen by a health care professional can go to www.coxhealth.com/virtualvisits.

After filling out some initial information — such as name, birthdate and phone number — a CoxHealth Patient Navigator is sent the request for care. The navigator talks to the patient to determine the type of care required, and contacts the provider to join the patient in their virtual room.

A few minutes later, a provider logs on and sees the patient via webcam before making a diagnosis. If a prescription is needed, it is sent to a pharmacy and the patient can use his or her health insurance benefits just like when obtaining a prescription in a traditional office setting.
