Why Our Prices are so Low

We’ve created efficient ways to bring the cost of healthcare way down and make quality care accessible to everyone. This includes standardizing pricing so you don’t need to stress over unknown insurance costs, and using data-driven technology to speed and smarten up the process of seeing a doctor. We’ve also built a free symptom checker that compares your symptoms to millions like you to give you information on how others were diagnosed and treated—helping you decide if you need to chat with a clinician or seek in-person care.

Standardized pricing

Generally, we aim to keep our prices less than other telemedicine and in-person providers. That’s because we charge straightforward fees, regardless of your condition or treatment, or if you have insurance or not.

You also avoid the costs most insurance plans charge for primary care visits, such as copays, hidden fees, and high deductibles. 

You can pay for a one-time visit or a monthly Primary Care or Mental Health membership. The Primary Care membership includes visits and follow-ups whenever you need them, plus chronic condition management and care your children 3-17. The Mental Health membership includes personalized text-based anxiety and depression treatment, plus everything included in Primary Care.

Unless you’re prescribed a prescription or sent for something like an in-person lab test, equipment, imaging or another referral, you pay nothing else for the services we provide. We also can fill some medications in-house via our mail-order pharmacy, and ship them right to your door for an additional charge. Note that we are not an insurance product*.

Smart technology

K Health’s cutting-edge technology helps your clinician focus more on diagnosing and treating you—and less on triage, scheduling, and in-take paperwork. 

Our data-driven Symptom Checker asks you questions about your symptoms and, in seconds, compares them to the anonymous medical records of others with similar cases.  

When you start a chat with a clinician on the K Health platform, they immediately see your prior responses to help diagnose you in minutes and guide you on the next best steps.

Our technology also helps you decide if you should seek medical care, or if your condition can be effectively treated remotely. This helps you save on costs associated with a doctor’s visit, or the ER and Urgent Care.

Remote visits

K Health offers virtual care, and can treat hundreds of chronic and urgent conditions remotely. Our urgent care clinicians are available 24/7 via our text-based app and web platform, which helps save on costs typically associated with traditional “office hours” like time off work and childcare. Remote visits also help you save on things like gas and parking.

Wait times are also generally less.
