How does LiveHealth Online work?
Getting started is easy. Members just go to livehealthonline.com or download the Android or iOs app to sign up and set up a profile. After they create an account, members can use LiveHealth Online to have a video visit with a doctor or therapist of their choice. To see a doctor, they select LiveHealth Online Medical to view the doctors they can visit with. After they select a doctor, they’ll need to give a reason for their visit and a summary of their health history. Then they’ll need to choose a pharmacy to use, if a prescription is needed. Next they’ll be asked to enter their health plan and credit card information, if there is a cost for the visit. Then they’ll be placed in a virtual waiting room until the doctor is ready to meet with them – the average wait time is about 10 minutes or less.
For a therapy visit, they select LiveHealth Online Psychology to choose the licensed therapist or psychologist they want to meet with. Then they schedule an appointment by calling 1-844-784-8409 between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. Or they can schedule online by selecting the appointment tab. In most cases, they can make an appointment and see a therapist in four days or less.2
