FRISCO — For Summit County residents who have a minor illness that requires medication or a quick visit with a doctor, things are about to get a lot easier. MinuteClinic by CVS Health, is now offering video visits in Colorado. The service can treat people with minor illnesses, minor injuries and skin conditions 24 hours a day through the CVS Pharmacy App and online. 

Having access to the telehealth service can especially help Summit County residents who live in more remote or hard-to-reach areas as well as those who do not have health insurance. 

A CVS MinuteClinic video visit costs $59, which can be paid with credit, debit, FSA and HSA cards. Shannon Stern, a PR Account Executive who contracts with MinuteClinic, said insurance coverage is likely to be added in early 2020. 

To use MinuteClinic virtual visits, patients can sign up at cvs.com/minuteclinic/virtual-care. MinuteClinic video visits are available in 40 states and can be initiated by the patient through the CVS Pharmacy app or on the MinuteClinic website. Any prescriptions deemed necessary from a patient’s virtual visit can be filled at the patient’s pharmacy of choice.
