CareFirst Members: Video Visits Provide Low-cost Option When Primary Physician is Unavailable
You think you are getting over a cold but instead you come down with a fever. Your toddler is fussy and starts pulling at her ear. Your son’s eye is bright red and you are sure it is infected. You call your doctor’s office to make an appointment and hear a message that the office is closed for the day.
You could go to a convenience care or urgent center, but wait times can be long, and you don’t feel up to going. There is another option: a video visit.
A video visit allows you to consult with a board-certified doctor 24/7 without an appointment, using your smartphone, tablet, or computer. For the price of a co-pay, CareFirst video visit doctors can treat common ailments such as cold and flu, ear infections, and pinkeye.
