Virtual ExpressCare provider assessments are billed to insurance. All applicable co-payments and co-insurances will be applied according to your insurance plan.

If patients cannot afford to pay or are uninsured, Virtual ExpressCare will provide care and connect patients to trained financial counselors who can help them enroll in health insurance coverage or financial assistance through NYC Care, Medicaid, and Medicare, with per visit fees as low as $0, depending on patients’ income and family size. The standard self-pay charge for Virtual ExpressCare telehealth visits is $125.
