Important COVID-19 Information

Patient Visit Process: What you need to know

We are now offering rapid COVID-19 testing at select Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care locations, with results in approximately 15 mins. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or believe you have been exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual, we recommend you schedule a Virtual Visit. If you do not have COVID-19 symptoms, we recommend you save your spot online at a nearby center. This will save you time and help us safely prepare for you and other patients.

Flu, strep and antibody testing is also available at all centers 7 days a week.

How does a Virtual Visit work?

Similar to WhatsApp, Skype and FaceTime, a Virtual Visit allows you to meet with a provider via video when you can’t make it to one of our centers. Like an in-person visit, a video visit can be made same-day. 15 minutes before your session starts, you will receive an email and/or a text message with a direct link to your video session. Click the link to enter your date of birth and electronically sign any consent form. When you connect to the video session, your provider will be notified and will join.

Can I receive prescriptions from a Virtual Visit?

If your provider deems it necessary, prescriptions are handled in the same manner as an in-person visit and are delivered electronically to the patient's pharmacy. Narcotics may not be prescribed during a Virtual Visit.

Is a Virtual Visit the same thing as telehealth or telemedicine?

Our Virtual Visit services fall under the telemedicine category, defined by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) as "the practice of medicine using technology to deliver care at a distance." Where as, telehealth is defined as "electronic and telecommunications technologies and services used to provide care and services at-a-distance." Our providers and teledoctors are experienced with the tools and technology to provide the same amazing care you'd find in one of our centers.
