15 Oct Seeking Medical Attention During the Pandemic
Seeking medical attention can be a stressful experience under the best circumstances. Add in an international pandemic, and well, you’re in for the perfect storm. The good news? It doesn’t have to be an anxiety-inducing event, thanks to myURGENCYMD. Read on to learn more about how to safely seek medical attention during the pandemic.
Need medical attention? Start with the first line of defense: virtual appointments. We recommend booking a virtual appointment with a doctor to stay safe. Thanks to the wonders of technology, you can chat with a provider in the comfort of your own home. It’s the safest option for everyone!
Never had a virtual doctor’s visit before? Here’s how it works for members of myURGENCYMD:
- You realize you need to see a doctor.
First, you log into the myURGENCYMD portal or call 866-746-1676 to request a consultation with one of our licensed physicians, therapists, or healthcare advocates.
- Speak with a Care Coordinator.
Secondly, you speak to a Care Coordinator who will triage and update your Electronic Health Record (EHR) along with all your symptoms.
- Talk with a physician.
Thirdly, you consult with a physician who recommends a treatment plan. If a prescription is necessary, it’s sent to the pharmacy of your choice.
- The doctor updates your EHR.
The doctor will update your EHR immediately after the consultation. You have 24/7 secure access to your member portal online.
With myURGENCYMD, you receive 24/7/365 access to board-certified physicians via video chat or phone.
We also offer more than just telemedicine. You also receive additional services including mental health therapy, patient healthcare advocacy, and the ability to ask a specialist any question about your health. You can even get a doctors’ note if needed for work or school.
At a low monthly price, myURGENCYMD’s services are available to your entire family (up to 7 people) without any additional costs or copays. Kiss hidden fees goodbye! If you don’t have health insurance, this is a perfect option for you.
With myURGENCYMD, you can skip the waiting room and be sure all of your questions and concerns are answered and addressed. Your prescription is sent straight to the pharmacy so all you have to do is pick it up once filled.
Telemedicine is quickly becoming the future of medicine. It is convenient, readily available, and affordable. Let us save you time and money by assisting you in determining whether you have an URGENCY or an EMERGENCY.
If you do need in-person medical treatment, be sure to take the proper precautions. Arm yourself with plenty of hand sanitizer and always wear a mask. Bring your own pen to fill out forms to avoid touching germy pre-used pens. =
Avoid using the public restroom, if at all possible. Try to avoid touching doorknobs, elevator buttons, etc. with your bare hands. Use your elbow or wash your hands immediately after coming in contact with a shared surface.
Above all, make sure you keep your health (and others’ health) in mind when deciding how and where to seek medical attention during the pandemic.
