Insured by Blue Cross? Virtual Clinic Visits Are Just $25

At Mission Health, our patients are – and will always be – our No. 1 priority. We are committed to ensuring that your health and wellness are not jeopardized by Blue Cross NC’s unwillingness to negotiate.

Despite being out of network with Blue Cross, it is important to know that you can still get the care you need online. A visit with a Mission Virtual Clinic is always just $25.

Four things to know about Mission Virtual Clinic:

  • It’s Convenient – The clinic visit is completely web-based, and takes about five minutes to fill out your information. The people who benefit most from Mission Virtual Clinic are those with a minor condition who might end up sitting in their doctor’s waiting room longer than it takes for them to be diagnosed. With cold and flu season upon us, Mission Virtual Clinic can help with earlier evaluation and treatment.
  • It’s Fast – It’s a guided adaptive interview process, where a patient logs on to a secure website and responds to a series of 15 to 20 questions. Then a provider, within 60 minutes, reviews the answers and their medical history, and determines whether this is something they can treat virtually. The provider then proceeds to either make a recommendation, prescribe medication or refer the patient on for additional care or testing.
  • It’s Helpful – Mission Virtual Clinic treats a variety of common conditions, including cold, sinus infection and sore throat, flu, urinary tract infection, yeast infection, pink eye, cold sore and eczema. If a patient has certain criteria, such as fever above 101.5 degrees Fahrenheit or chest pain, for example, the program immediately tells them they need to be seen in person.
  • It’s Always $25 – Because insurance is not filed for a visit with Mission Virtual Clinic, a patient’s insurance provider has no impact on the cost of an online visit.
