From hailing a ride to spotting someone a $20 to watching your favorite program, we’ve reached the point where the majority of our needs can be met via our smartphones. But what about primary care? The convenience and accessibility you’ve become used to in everyday life can now be used to get diagnosis and treatment. Forget the hassle of copays, waiting rooms and scheduling. Now, there’s 98point6.
98point6 provides on-demand consultation, diagnosis and treatment from board-certified physicians and sends prescriptions to your pharmacy as needed– all via secure in-app messaging. Our unique mode of care means you can receive care discreetly from anywhere—on your terms, when you need it.
Currently available in CA, CT, FL, IL, MD, MI, NJ, NY, OH, OR, PA and WA with additional states coming soon (see full list of supported states on app sign-in screen). Must be 18 years or older.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Personal plans are subscription-based and your first year of access comes at a low introductory rate of $20. No usage fees. We do not bill insurance. It is $20 for all the primary care visits you need. That’s right—a full year of unlimited primary care for less than the copay of one doctor visit.
WHAT DOES MY PERSONAL PLAN SUBSCRIPTION COVER?
Your Personal Plan subscription covers the entire cost of your 98point6 visit. There are no per-visit costs and no copays with our subscription-based Personal Plan—a flat fee for all the primary care visits you need in a given year. Patients are responsible for the cost of prescriptions, in-person visits if referred, lab costs, over-the-counter medication, etc; the typical outside-of-visit costs that a patient would incur in traditional care (see User Agreement for details).
DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?
No appointments necessary. Just sign in to the app and start a visit. It’s immediate care when and where you need it.
WHO ARE YOUR DOCTORS?
Carefully selected, board-certified physicians who are passionate about making healthcare more accessible and affordable. They are specially trained to treat and diagnose via in-app text-based care. (Our service supports photo, video and audio as needed.)
DO I NEED HEALTH INSURANCE?
You will not need your insurance to use 98point6. We provide care through our subscription-based model that is covered in full by your Personal Plan. Insurance can be used for all of the outside-of-visit costs that a patient would incur in traditional care (prescriptions, in-person visits if referred, lab costs, over-the-counter medication, etc).
WHAT CAN I USE 98POINT6 FOR?
98point6 treats the full spectrum of Primary Care. Our doctors answer questions, diagnose and treat acute illnesses and order any necessary prescriptions or labs. If we can’t offer treatment, we’ll refer you to an in-person primary care physician or specialist. Common conditions we treat include, but are not limited to:
• Acid reflux, heartburn and digestive issues
• Allergies, asthma and respiratory issues
• Back problems, aches and pains
• Cold, cough and flu
• Diabetes, hypertension and chronic conditions
• Eye issues and infections
• General health questions
• Insomnia and sleep issues
• Skin conditions, acne, rashes, bites and sunburn
• Urinary tract infections (UTI)
Note: 98point6 is not for medical emergencies.
