Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is it secure?
Yes, our video visits, phone calls and emailing system all meet the highest security standards in the industry so you can have a safe, secure and confidential consult. PlushCare is HIPAA compliant and your privacy and happiness are our highest priorities.
2. How much does it cost?
A PlushCare visit is a $99 flat fee, or if you have insurance the cost is just your office visit copay.
3. Do I need to have health insurance to use PlushCare?
No, PlushCare does NOT require health insurance. The only requirement is that the patient is in a state where we operate. Some states (CA, FL, GA, TX) also require a video appointment instead of a phone appointment.
4. How long do the consultations typically last?
The typical consultation lasts 10 -15 minutes.
5. What is PlushCare’s prescription policy?
Under law, PlushCare CANNOT prescribe DEA controlled substances. We can prescribe antibiotics and antihistamines. Short-term prescriptions for maintenance medicines may also be obtained in cases where a member is in transition to a new doctor or traveling. It is important to note that PlushCare is not a drug fulfillment warehouse. In the event a doctor does prescribe medication, he/she will limit the supply based on state regulations. Patients with chronic illnesses should visit their primary care physicians or other specialists for extended care. PlushCare doctors do not issue prescriptions for substances controlled by the DEA, non-therapeutic, and/or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. These include, but are not limited to, antidepressant drugs such as Cymbalta, Prozac and Zoloft which are drugs that are harmful due to their potential for abuse. Also, non-therapeutic drugs such as Viagra and Cialis are not prescribed by PlushCare doctors. Prescriptions are not available for international consults.

Thank you for using PlushCare and helping us revolutionize healthcare! Top Doctors. Fast Prescriptions. On your smartphone.
Each update we bring to the App Store includes bug fixes, efficiency and reliability improvements. We will also highlight new features as they become available.
The app can be a bit glitchy, but just use their website. Best healthcare service ever! PlushCare is like an urgent care you do from the comfort of your own home via phone call or video chat. There is zero wait time. Your appointment commences at the time you scheduled it. The doctors are kind, knowledgeable and proficient. They can get you the prescription you need and are more than willing to write you a note if you need time off from work. If this isn't enough to sway you, know that I have never met a group of healthcare professionals that was more compassionate. In a day and age when you normally wait 30-45 minutes after your appointment time to see your own PCP, and even then you feel rushed in and out, this service is worth their weight in gold! A++
I'm a healthcare professional. Many times I have an idea of what's going on, but I cannot treat myself. I'm in between insurance coverage now, and I knew I needed to speak with a provider. Being able to order my own low cost labs and speak with a doctor about them for free was AMAZING! All within the span of 3 days mind you. This was so convenient that I would consider the service even when my insurance kicks in. Definitely worth saving the time, not taking off work, and skipping the copay.
Great idea and competent doctor
I was recently snowed in at Lake Tahoe with all of the urgent care centers closed. We were able to make an appointment within a couple of hours of calling and speak directly with a Dr. Dantes. He was very professional, thorough and competent. He emailed in a prescription to the local pharmacy just like an in person care center would. I'd use this service again over going to a clinic for convenience alone. Who wants to go drive around when you're feeling bad?
