We understand that the cost to see one of our specialists may not be within everyone's budget. However, for many people with insurance, a Virtucare visit will save you money. The average co-pay to see a specialist is $50. With rising deductibles as well, your out-of-pocket expenses for a specialist visit can be several hundred dollars. Don't forget the convenience of having a Virtucare visit without leaving work, finding childcare, driving to appointments, sitting in waiting rooms and waiting weeks for an appointment.
Did you know that the U.S. wastes $500 billion in healthcare dollars on unnecessary billing and insurance costs! At Virtucare we don't accept insurance so we can minimize our administrative costs, pay our specialists fair market value and keep costs lower for our patients.

At Virtucare we take your privacy seriously. Unlike traditional in-person visits where your private health information may inadvertantly be seen or heard by others, a Virtucare visit is performed on a HIPAA compliant (U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) telemedicine platform so the only people who know about your visit are you and the specialist. We comply with all appropriate state, national and international laws and regulations. Unless we have your permission or we are required by law, your medical information will not be shared without your consent.
