We accept most health insurance plans, including Kaiser, which usually covers video visits (although some plans may require a co-pay). If you’d rather not use insurance, we offer discounts, especially if you have an FSA or HSA plan.
Video visits are a practical solution, especially if you’re an older person who has trouble moving around or if you can’t take time off from work. They’re also a handy choice when your regular doctor isn’t available or if you have health questions on the weekend.
