So sick you don’t want to leave the house? UHC’s Virtual Visits have you covered!

Travel Nurses are always on the go. Which makes United Healthcare’s Virtual Visits a great fit for your busy lifestyle!

If you have medical insurance coverage through United Healthcare, you can take advantage of their Virtual Visits to see and talk to a doctor from the comfort of home — or wherever you are! Simply use your mobile device of computer to connect. Virtual Visits do not require an appointment, typically take just about 10-15 minutes, and doctors can write prescriptions, if necessary.

Plus, UHC’s Virtual Visits are included with your health benefits and available at no extra cost to you! 

Virtual Visits are ideal for times when your doctor is unavailable or you’re traveling, but not so good for anything requiring an exam or test, complex or chronic conditions, sprains/broken bones or injuries necessitating bandages. As a nurse with an in-depth understanding of healthcare, you’re uniquely equipped to understand when the best time to use a Virtual Visit might be, but some common conditions treated via Virtual Visits include:

  • Fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Cold/flu/sore throat
  • Bronchitis
  • Bladder/urinary tract infection
  • Migraines
  • Pink eye
  • Rash
  • Sinus issues
  • Stomach ache

So, how do you access Virtual Visits?

It’s simple. Just log in at myuhc.com and choose from provider sites where you can register for a Virtual Visit. Services may vary by state, so be sure to check out what’s available in your area.

Once you’ve registered and requested a visit, you’ll pay your portion of service costs per your plan (just as you would a co-pay) and then enter a virtual waiting room. The doctor will appear when he or she is ready to see you, and you’ll have their undivided attention to discuss your health concerns with them.
