CVS Health clinic launches virtual healthcare visits

CVS Health Corp. said Aug. 8 that its retail medical clinic is launching a new service that gives patients with minor illnesses access to healthcare professionals via a mobile phone application.

The company's MinuteClinic is rolling out a service called MinuteClinic Video Visits on the CVS Pharmacy mobile application.

The telehealth offering, which is being launched in partnership with virtual care provider Teladoc Inc., gives patients with minor illnesses and wellness issues access to healthcare services at any time.

One video visit costs $59, and insurance coverage will be added to the program in the coming months, CVS said. During a visit, patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire. They will then be matched to a healthcare provider, who will be board-certified and licensed in their state to assess their condition and will conduct a video-enabled visit.

The service is now available in Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Virginia and Washington, D.C. A nationwide launch is expected by the end of 2018.
