MOORHEAD — CVS Health recently rolled out its virtual visit offering in eight additional states, including Minnesota.
MinuteClinic Video Visits provide patients with access to care 24 hours a day, seven days a week from their mobile device or computer.
Video visits can be used to provide care for patients ages 2 years and older who are seeking treatment for a minor illness, minor injury or a skin condition. Each patient will complete a health questionnaire and be matched to a board-certified health care provider licensed in their state, who will review the completed questionnaire with the patient’s medical history, and proceed with the video-enabled visit.
A MinuteClinic Video Visit costs $59, which is currently payable by credit, debit, FSA and HSA cards. Insurance coverage will be added to the experience in the coming months. The service, first introduced in August 2018, is now available in a total of 26 states - Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Wyoming - and Washington D.C.
Information about initiating a MinuteClinic Video Visit is part of the clinic locator on the MinuteClinic web site for states where the service is available.
