Your calm in the storm

8697775_S (2)As we continue to take stock of all the devastation hurricanes Harvey and Irma left behind, our hearts go out to our fellow Texans struggling through the aftermath.

Based in Texas, we’ve seen members of our WellVia family ride out the storm, some of them in the flood zones, others dealing with the gas shortages and the flood of evacuees making their way to safety. We’ve personally witnessed the spirit that kicked in, when everyone stopped to help each other recover and start to rebuild after Hurricane Harvey, even as Irma threatened to send more our way. As Texas’ own Kris Kristofferson so poignantly puts it, we won’t back down.

Times like these also underscore the importance of what we do at WellVia, delivering affordable, available healthcare for non-emergency medical issues wherever you are, whenever you need it. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously, and the trust our subscribers put in us to bring them the best U.S.-based, board-certified bilingual doctors into their homes via the internet, mobile devices and telephone.

We must be doing something right; our member approval rate is 95 percent!

WellVia is not an insurance policy, though your insurance company may allow you to submit your consultation fee for reimbursement. Our members pay a subscription fee of $9.95 a month, which gives them and up to six dependents access to care 24/7/365. And when the need arises – say, your little one complains of an earache in the middle of the night – you can snuggle with her at home while the WellVia doctor treats her. Studies show that telehealth services are effective in 70 percent of the cases you might take to your primary physician and 40 percent of what sends you to urgent care or the emergency room, at a fraction of the cost. A WellVia consultation is $30, compared to an average of $100 for primary care, $155 for urgent care and $1,000 for the emergency room.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  • Request a consultation, by accessing your online account or calling our Patient Care Center. We will not turn you away for any pre-existing conditions.
  • Speak with a doctor. Within minutes, one of our U.S.-based, board-certified bilingual doctors will be in contact. We’re there for you, on Christmas, in the middle of the night, on vacation, or at school, whenever and wherever you need us.
  • If the doctor feels a prescription is necessary, one will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice following your consultation. Available prescriptions do not include controlled substances, or medicines that are considered harmful because of their potential for abuse. Non-therapeutic drugs such as Viagra and Cialis are also unavailable.
