When should you choose Indigo Online Care?

Life is hectic. When you need medical care, it isn’t always easy or convenient to squeeze in an appointment with a provider. And an in-person visit may not be nearly as comfortable as recuperating on the couch.

If you or your little ones prefer care for a minor illness or injury from the coziness of home or while out of town, Indigo Online Care may be right for you.

How does online care work?

Indigo Online Care makes it easy to get care on your schedule — no appointment needed. Choose from two simple, convenient and affordable options:

  • E-Visits

    • Start a visit anytime, 24/7.
    • Complete a quick questionnaire about your symptoms and how you’re feeling.  
    • Once your answers are submitted, an Indigo provider will review your symptoms. Within 24 hours, you’ll receive a diagnosis and treatment plan, which may include a prescription. 
    • E-Visits are covered by many insurance plans. Without insurance, the cost of is $40, which is comparable to an insurance co-pay. 
    • We’ll do our best, but not all conditions can be treated via Indigo Online Care. If you can’t be treated, you won’t be charge for your E-Visit. You may be directed to one of our Indigo Urgent Care clinics for care. 
       
  • Video Visits

    • Meet face-to-face with an Indigo provider. Visits are typically 15-25 minutes.
    • Available 8 am to 8 pm every day, including holidays.
    • Receive a diagnosis, treatment plan and prescription, if needed.
    • Video Visits are covered by many insurance plans. Without insurance, the cost is $99.
