25/7 Access To A Doctor By Phone For $3.99 With The Urgent Care App + Twitter Party Details

Have you ever had one of those ailments when you kind of think you should go to the doctor, but you aren’t really sure if it is worth the trip? You know, the ones where you poll your Facebook friends to see what they would do because you don’t want to shell out the co-pay if the doctor is going to send you home with nothing?

I know I have – many times. In fact, the most recent time was less than two weeks ago. My daughter had an ant bite that spread into hives (no surprises there, we have dealt with that before). But this time it wouldn’t go away, it kept getting worse. I was concerned it had gotten infected, but the last thing I wanted to do was spend $100 at the doctor’s office (I have a high deductible insurance) to be told it was just running its course. 

I waited, and waited. Finally, I decided enough was enough and we went to the doctor — she had a staph infection.

Urgent Care App GreatCallWhat if I could have paid $3.99 to talk to a nurse or a doctor before I went to describe the symptoms and ask if they thought I should go in. Would I have done that? You bet I would have. 

Days after receiving the antibiotics (which cleared up the infection nicely), I learned about a new (free) Urgent Care app from GreatCall that allows you to do just that. With the Urgent Care app you can talk to a nurse for $3.99 about your symptoms. The nurse can even escalate your call to a doctor for no additional charge. How is that for convenient and affordable healthcare?

Through the Urgent Care app, the doctor can even prescribe common medications, which might completely eliminate your need to see a doctor — for $3.99. 

Urgent Care App Features:

  • Access to a live, registered nurse who can escalate to a board-certified doctor around the clock for an introductory price of only $3.99 per call.
  • Doctors may give advice, diagnosis or even prescribe common medications for a wide range of conditions over the phone.
  • Access to the award-winning A.D.A.M. Medical Encyclopedia and Interactive Symptom Checker that provide information from leading medical institutions including the National Institutes of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • Service available in English and Spanish.

Urgent Care App Doctor

In addition to talking to a nurse or doctor, the Urgent Care app includes a wealth of information at your finger tips for free with the Medical Encyclopedia and Interactive Symptom Checker. 

The app is free, so go ahead and download it to your phone now so you will have it when you need it. Then stop polling your Facebook friends and place the call. $3.99 to talk to a doctor – you can’t beat it.

  1. This would be so incredibly helpful. Just two weeks ago I had to trek over to my neighbors house after dark to get her and her husband’s opinion on whether or not I needed a couple stitches for a cut I got. Granted that’s not exactly how this works, but there are so many times where I’m hesitant to pay my deductible to have a doctor tell me that I’m actually fine or that meds won’t help. In fact, I’m so hesitant that I have found myself much worse off for NOT going to the doctor. Thanks for introducing me to this!

  2. very interesting! I could have used something like this when I wasn’t sure if hubby was having an appendicitis attack or not a few weeks ago, and it possibly could have saved us a costly trip to the ER.

  3. This could be so helpful in those situations when you’re not sure whether to make a dr. appt. A one-stop place for quick answers on the non emergency health concerns.

  4. Sounds great but my dr. is always available by phone anytime by calling his office; the answering service will get ahold of him for free 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  5. Never heard of this app but it sounds helpful and they seem to be able to do a lot over the phone like prescribe. Could be useful

  6. This really sounds like a great app. Now that I have two young grandsons we are constantly battling illnesses and accidents. This would come in handy!

  7. sounds a lot easier then the hoops I have to jump through to get my questions answered lately.. especially when it comes to my daughter’s health

  8. This sounds like an amazing app. I am uninsured, so going to the doctor is $80 a visit. I’d rather pay $3.99 to see if I need Sudafed or Tylenol, lol. Thanks for posting about this! 🙂

  9. What a great app! Finally someone to check with before you go to the emergency or well-care area. The cost have sky-rocketed in our area – well over $200 just to go to the emergency room and about $75 for a well visit in a local one – this is perfect and I will be looking into it for my youngest, thank you!

  10. What a great idea! This would have been very helpful as a first time mom with a newborn….you never know whether or not you are being over protective or something is really wrong. Would be so nice to talk to someone BEFORE making an appointment or rushing to the ER.

  11. This would be a God send especially for new Mom’s . An App for $3.99 could save unnecessary trips to the ER or Dr. even. Great idea! Thank you for sharing this one!

  12. This would be great for me. I don’t have my own car, so it would be great to get a doctor’s opinion before I try to track down a car to borrow so I can go to a doctor’s office.
