Amwell is the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting users with board-certified, licensed doctors, dietitians and psychologists for immediate and live, online visits—day or night, on either mobile or desktop.
I think my favorite thing about this service is Amwell doctors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which means when the weekend rolls around and the kids get sick, which they invetibly do when their regular doctor is closed, Amwell is there! Plus you don’t even need an appointment. We live up in the mountains in Colorado. When I need to go to the doctor, sometimes it can be over an hour away to get to one and this service lets me see a doctor from my house on my iPhone or iPad.
You can also expect a lower price! Most in-office visits cost $82 for first-time patients according to the Healthcare Blue Book, Amwell offers a $49 physician visit – a savings of $33. Plus we have health insurance so I was able to enter my health insurance and the cost of the visit would have been exactly the same as if I would have went to a doctor’s office.
So I tried out the service today and absolutely loved it! My kids have been sick all week. And the one thing that is more stressful than 4 kids being sick is taking the well ones along with the sick ones to a doctor’s office where they might contract another sickness. You don’t know how reassuring and less stressful using Amwell is. And the best part is your first visit is free! Just click this link here and use coupon code: BEWELL15
The doctor we visited today was so sweet and caring and when we were visiting, our video was lost and she immediately called me! She took a real interest in my son who is sick and listened to my concerns and even laughed with us when my son tried to give her a pretend cupcake through the computer.
Another good use for this would have been when we first moved to Colorado, I was 6 months pregnant and had a hard time finding a new provider. This service would have been a great thing to use when I needed to refill my prenatal vitamins.
Your visit with the doctor is secure and HIPAA compliant and the first telehealth service awarded accreditation by The American Telemedicine Association.
