The Benefits of Pediatric Telemedicine
Never Leave Your Home

Get a Prescription
Connect to a pediatric provider who can diagnose, treat, and if needed, send your prescription to a local pharmacy.
All our providers are specialized in pediatrics, because we believe that little patients are a BIG deal.
Open 365 Days a Year
We’re open 7 days/week, including after-hours (8am–9pm Monday-Sunday). We’re open all holidays and weekends.
Just for Kids
Our pediatricians provide expert medical care for children of all ages up to age 21.
We accept most insurance plans as well as offer a discounted self-pay rate of $50.
Pricing With Insurance
We believe in providing quality pediatric care at an affordable rate to anyone who uses our service, so Virtual Care for Kids® is now available to anyone in the state of Texas, with and without insurance.
We accept most insurance plans, including Aetna, Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, and more! (see all insurance accepted). We also accept most Medicaid plans. As you enter the visit, simply upload a photo of your insurance card, and we’ll take care of the rest.
If you select insurance, your responsibility will vary depending on your plan.
Pricing Without Insurance
If you would prefer to pay for your virtual visit without insurance, we also offer a self-pay option which is normally $75 but in an effort to expand access to care during CVOID-19 we have reduced it to $50. We provide a safe and secure payment process to allow you to quickly pay for your visit directly from your device, whether that be a computer, smart phone, or tablet.
