SSM Launches Virtual Visits Initiative

SSM Health (SSM), a midwestern, charitable health system, has launched a virtual visit service available to Missouri and Wisconsin residents, accessible via smartphone, tablet, or computer, for a fee of $25 and is offered regardless of whether the user has health insurance or is a current patient of SSM Health.  After completing an initial questionnaire, the user will interface with an SSM provider and discuss appropriate treatment options and potential medications, which can be sent to the user’s preferred pharmacy.  If accessed during normal operating hours, the user can access a provider within an hour, typically within 15 minutes.
