How Does HealthSapiens Work?

Voted "Best Subscription Service for Online Doctors" by Consumers Advocate, HealthSapiens is one of the easiest and most affordable online healthcare providers we’ve come across to date. For a fraction of the price of any other medical services, HealthSapiens gives you unlimited access to medical professionals during the term of your subscription. And everything can be done online. HealthSapiens has 4 steps to get you the treatment you need. Here’s how it works:

1. Sign Up For a 7-Day Risk-Free Trial

Start by creating a HealthSapiens Medical account and profile. Tell HealthSapiens about yourself, including your name, contact details, and date of birth. Select a plan and save your preferred debit or credit card so your subscription isn’t interrupted after your trial ends. Click complete payment to finish the transaction. Once you have done this, you can then connect to HealthSapiens either over the phone or online via video chat and messaging -- whatever you're more comfortable with. Tell them why you're requesting a doctor's visit, including any relevant details such as symptoms or concerns you may have.

2. Request Consultation

When you reach out to HealthSapiens, you’ll be connected to the triage team. Here, your electronic health record will be updated and reviewed, including the most current symptoms and reason(s) for your current visit.

3. Virtual Doctor Visit

Next, you'll be connected directly to a board-certified U.S. doctor in as little as 15 minutes (and often in 5 minutes or less.) This is your actual doctor's visit, where you will discuss with the doctor any issues you're having, get the guidance you need, and any other details you need to consult on. The doctor will give you a diagnosis, answer your questions, explain your condition, and can even write a prescription and send it to a pharmacy of your choice. Your doctor can also recommend any other steps or methods of treatment that pertain to your current issue so you can get relief.

4. Care Continuity

HealthSapiens doctors will continue to administer treatment until your issue is resolved while you are a subscriber. Your Electronic Health Record is updated, reviewed, and securely-stored for efficient access and convenient export. This is another unique aspect of HealthSapiens healthcare -- most telehealth services won’t include follow-up or continuous care. This is a major benefit.

HealthSapiens - How It Works

What Does HealthSapiens Treat?

HealthSapiens treatment covers the spectrum from A to Z. Except for major and immediate medical emergencies, there's almost nothing this telehealth service can't deal with. Here is a list of some of the conditions you can have treated via HealthSapiens:

  • Allergies
  • Bronchitis
  • Cold
  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Ear Ache
  • Eye Infection
  • Fever
  • Flu / Influenza
  • Headache
  • Pneumonia
  • Rash / Skin Infection
  • Sinus Infection
  • Small Wound
  • Stomach Ache
  • Upper Respiratory Infection
  • Vomiting
  • Yeast Infection

As HealthSapiens puts it on the website, basically, unless you are ready to call an ambulance, HealthSapiens can help you out.

How Much Does HealthSapiens Medical Cost?

HealthSapiens Medical has an unusual pricing structure. Rather than a per-visit pricing plan like most online healthcare providers charge, HealthSapiens Medical is an affordable flat rate each month. The price includes unlimited doctor visits and 24/7 access to your medical treatment. So, you can make an appointment every day of the month if you want to, and you'll still only pay the single flat fee for that month. However, if you take advantage of their 7-day trial, you can try the Individual Plan risk-free before committing.

HealthSapiens has 2 plans to choose from, a family plan and an individual plan. Here’s the pricing breakdown for them both:


Family Plan
Individual Plan
Price per month
$24.95
$19.95

The family plan is incredibly generous. It covers up to 7 individuals, so a family with 5 kids can pay just $25 for full coverage.

The company does not list the prices for HealthSapiens Counseling on their website.

Does HealthSapiens Take Insurance?

The best part of HealthSapiens is that it doesn’t require any health insurance to work. Anyone can sign up and get coverage, paying $20-$25 a month for full coverage.
