The cost for an online doctor visit is just $49 if you don't have a health plan, if your plan doesn't cover online visits or if you haven't met your plan’s deductible. If your health plan covers these visits, you may only owe the copay or coinsurance amount. Either way, you will always see what you owe before you begin a visit.
Yes. You can have a visit, but you would need to pay for the LiveHealth Online visit with your personal credit card and then submit the claim to the other health insurance plan to determine if you will be reimbursed for your visit.
No. The cost is the same no matter when you visit with the doctor, just $49 without insurance.
You may use Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express debit and credit cards for payment. Keep in mind that charges for prescriptions aren't included in the cost of your visit.
Yes. To obtain a sick slip from a LiveHealth Online visit you must have a visit with an online doctor and tell him or her you need a sick slip before the call ends.

To get a copy of the sick slip open your account on LiveHealth Online and do the following:
- Select My Health

- Select the conversation visit date that you asked for the sick slip

Yes. The online care doctor can provide medical clearance to return to work or school, but this requires an online visit with the doctor. Be sure to request the sick slip before ending your conversation. The doctor will only be able to provide medical clearance for a reasonable number of days and is based on the doctor’s clinical judgment. The sick slip can be obtained from the online care system in the conversation history.
No. Completion of these forms requires the patient have an ongoing established relationship with a primary care physician such as a family practice physician, pediatrician or other medical doctor. Completion of these forms often requires an in-person physical exam and lab tests, which cannot be done through an online physician visit.
