GetCareMD is Here for You During COVID-19 Shelter-at-Home

When we started GetCareMD, our purpose was to offer our patients the ability to easily fit their basic healthcare needs into their budgets and busy schedules. Just a few short months ago, the demand for easy online healthcare access was linked to convenience rather than necessity. We could never have predicted how drastically that would change in the early part of 2020. Now, shelter-in-place and social distancing orders related to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic have made seeking healthcare via online platforms a necessity. We are proud to continue offering quality online healthcare appointments, prescription refills, and treatment referrals. Learn more about our services in this blog, and remember, we’re here to help you stay healthy and safe.

Doing Our Part to Encourage Shelter-in-Place & Social Distancing

If you’re feeling unwell or need prescriptions refilled for a preexisting illness, going to a doctor’s office or hospital may not just be difficult it could be dangerous. To help our patients stay home and stay healthy, we can offer virtual appointments for common health concerns, prescription refills, and other basic healthcare services. This is great for patients who don’t need to take any unnecessary health risks, but it’s also great for hospitals and clinics. They are able to save their resources and manpower to provide care for those who are in more dire need.

Continuing Commitment to Our Patients

Untreated chronic or emerging medical conditions can tax your immune system, putting you at greater risk during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s important to stay up to date on all prescriptions and seek treatment right away for new health concerns. To help you stay healthy and safe and minimize risk for COVID-19, GetCareMD can offer telemedicine appointments for a range of concerns, including:

  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Common colds and upper respiratory infections
  • Prescriptions refills for preexisting conditions

Affordable, Safe, Effective Medical Care – Starting Now

If you’re in need of regular preventive or maintenance care or want to visit with a medical professional for a checkup without ever needing to leave home, GetCareMD has you covered through the COVID-19 pandemic and after. Getting started is easy. Simply visit our consultation page where you can select a condition that fits your current situation. On the page for each condition, you’ll see a description and common symptoms. If the description fits your situation, click the “Start Consultation” button. From there, you’ll answer some questions for our medical professionals. Then, we’ll be in touch to schedule a video conference if necessary. Otherwise, we will recommend treatment options and send a prescription to the pharmacy of your choice. All of our consultation services are offered at a low, flat rate fee that is comparable to copays at a traditional clinic and typically much lower than the out of pocket costs associated with a trip to urgent care or the emergency room.
