(Wausau, WI) – Ascension Wisconsin has expanded its Online Care platform, giving consumers 24/7 access to the compassionate, personalized care they need – anytime, anywhere.
Ascension Online Care is an online urgent care that allows a patient to have a one-on-one video visit with a healthcare provider – using the device of their choice: a smartphone, tablet or laptop. The cost of a visit is $49 at the time of visit, can be paid using a credit card or HSA/FSA and does not require insurance.
“Ascension Wisconsin is pleased to offer a comprehensive virtual care option for urgent, episodic and non-emergency needs,” said Stewart Watson, MD, North Region Vice President of Clinical Services, Ascension Medical Group Wisconsin.
Ascension launched its initial online care program in central and northern Wisconsin in 2015 and Watson adds that this newest version of Ascension Online Care expands services to 24-hours-a-day with video capabilities. It can be used to treat a wide variety of symptoms and conditions, including sinus or upper respiratory infections, non-life-threatening allergic reactions, sore throat/cough, cold/flu, fever, seasonal allergies, and more.
“Ascension Online Care is another way to deliver access to comprehensive care within our trusted network of services, which includes primary, specialty, urgent, emergency and now online care,” said Watson. “We are excited to provide this service as an option, so consumers can get the right care, at a time and in a setting that is convenient for them.”
