How Does My Virtual Doctor Work?
My Virtual Doctor is not like most telehealth services you’ve seen before. While it offers remote diagnosis and treatment for many medical ailments, My Virtual Doctor actually provides a much larger range of services to its members than most. Here’s how a membership with My Virtual Doctor works and what’s included:
Lest it be forgotten in light of the other medical services My Virtual Doctor provides, let’s discuss the telemedicine services first. My Virtual Doctor partners with MDLive, a well-known telehealth service that provides remote medical care for regular medical conditions like the common cold, rashes, infections, asthma, mental health issues, and more. Patients can connect to a doctor 24/7 via their smartphone, computer, or tablet for video chat appointments. The best part is that My Virtual Doctor members have unlimited telehealthcare visits each month included in their prescription.
- Prescription cards
If you have a chronic condition that requires that you take recurring medication, then a drug discount card is going to save you a lot of money. My Virtual Doctor's prescription drug cards let members save anywhere from 10% to 85% on common medications at participating pharmacies. There are more than 6,500 pharmacies in the network across the country. What's even more impressive is that the My Virtual Doctor drug discount card works for everyone in your family (even your pets).
- Prescription assistance program
This is an important service if you take an expensive medication regularly, have a prescription that’s not covered by your policy, or hold a high deductible or copay policy. The My Virtual Doctor prescription assistance program works in tandem with pharmaceutical manufacturers and patient assistance programs to get discounts on 1,000+ FDA-approved medications. This service will apply for the discounts, handle all the paperwork, request refills, and even file your Patient Assistance Program re-application at the end of the year.
- Health advocates
Health advocates are a wide range of services that basically takes control of all of your medical needs, advocating on your behalf. Whether it's negotiating overdue medical bills or finding the right specialist for your medical condition, My Virtual Doctor health advocates will run the gamut.
- Medical equipment
Finally, My Virtual Doctor's discount card lets people save 40% on a wide range of medical equipment for various needs; things like diabetic supplies (needles, syringes, meters, etc.), splints and braces for ankles, knees, wrists, back, etc., catheters, safety supplies like grab bars, and bath benches, compression stockings, nebulizers, footwear, walkers, wheelchairs, and more. This is a big help for people who require expensive or continuous medical care supplies. What's more, My Virtual Doctor lets you purchase these items using your discount card directly on the website for more convenience.

What Do People Say About My Virtual Doctor?

Since my physician made the transition to online appointments through My Virtual DoctorTM platform I will never be put in that position again.” Jimmy Mathews
“Having a chronic condition makes my life difficult and unfortunately causes me to be at the medical center more than I could have ever possibly imagined.
