Let the doctor come to you, with no unexpected costs, no driving and no waiting.
Virtual visits offer at-your-fingertips telemedicine care for common conditions including strep throat, allergies, the stomach flu and much more through a live, confidential video consultation service. If you have a computer, smart phone or other mobile device, you have an appointment. How easy is that?
Is DirectConnect right for you?
If you want quick, convenient, quality care no matter where you are - the answer is probably "yes!" DirectConnect virtual visits use a secure online video connection (similar to Skype or FaceTime) so you can have a private visit with a qualified CoxHealth medical professional.
Visits are available for people ages 2 years and older. There are no unexpected costs - visits are just $49* without a plan code - and if you need a prescription, we'll call it in to your pharmacy.
