CVS Health announced on Wednesday that it will begin offering virtual visits to its retail health clinic, MinuteClinic, through its mobile app.
The company said the new service is uniquely convenient. Patients can connect with a board-certified provider using their personal cell phones 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
A virtual visit will cost $59. The virtual visits can treat patients over 2 years old for “minor illnesses and injuries, skin conditions and other wellness needs,” according to a press release. If the telehealth provider decides the patient needs to be seen in-person, he or she will recommend the patient visit a primary care doctor or nearby in-person MinuteClinic.
