App Description

The following description comes from the Google Play Store description of the app:

See a doctor, dietitian or psychologist anytime on your mobile device. Providers on Amwell are board certified, with an average of 10-15 years in practice. They are available 24/7, with no appointment needed. Amwell brings healthcare home, so that you can feel better, faster.

Created by doctors, Amwell is:
- The most popular consumer telehealth app worldwide in 2015, according to App Annie
- The first telehealth service awarded accreditation by The American Telemedicine Association

Have a question to ask a doctor, dietitian or psychologist? Get the care you need quickly - typical issues include:
• Bronchitis
• Cough
• Sinus infection
• Sore throat
• Urinary tract infection
• Vomiting
• Diarrhea
• Fever
• Pinkeye
• Flu
• Sprains and strains
• Cold
• Respiratory infection
• Headache
• Depression
• Anxiety
• Weight concerns
• Smoking cessation

Just choose the type of visit you are looking for and select a provider. Depending on the issue at hand, the doctor can diagnose, suggest follow up, and prescribe, when appropriate.

Amwell takes your privacy very seriously. Your visit with the doctor is secure and HIPAA compliant.

CNET says: “Those without health insurance are certainly saving a lot of money via this doctor ‘visit’ and those with health insurance may find that their plan completely covers the virtual visit, or that it still saved them in fees they may have incurred had they rushed off to the ER first.”

Amwell user: “I can't stress how easy and helpful Amwell was. I'll be using this app whenever I need to consult with a doc!”

Amwell is accepted by many major insurers, like United Healthcare, with more added every day. Enter your health insurance information for a lower cost visit.

Amwell doctor visits are now available in 46 states, including DC.
