When hornets 🐝 attack!Read more Read less
I was attacked by hornets and had a bad reaction. I went to the ER and they did NOTHING because I don’t have insurance. I lucked into finding this app! I gave my symptoms with a picture of my swelling then was prescribed steroids and something to help if they upset my stomach. Kind, caring, accurate, and courteous! Thank you so much! Highly recommend!John J. | Jul 20 2021
How do you support COVID-19?
K Health can help you identify if you or your child's symptoms might be related to COVID-19, and the doctors can give guidance and advice around your coronavirus concerns.
At this time, we are currently not supporting COVID-19 testing.
Is there a vaccine or cure?
There is currently no cure for COVID-19. There are, however, there are multiple coronavirus vaccines approved by the FDA that can help protect you from getting severely ill from the virus. Additionally, the anti-viral medication remdesivir (Veklury) is approved for COVID-19 treatment in hospitalized patients.
What should I do if I start to feel sick?
If you feel any of the symptoms associated with Coronavirus, you should:
Watch out for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. These signs include difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion or sleepiness, or bluish lips or face. If you develop these, get medical attention immediately.
Do you need insurance to use K Health?
One-time visits cost $35, or you can sign up for our K Health membership for $29 per month and get access to Primary Care, Urgent Care, Pediatrics, our mental health program, and more.
Our ED treatments start at $11/month.
Our symptom checker is always free to use.
K Health memberships are not insurance and exclude ancillary services (e.g., labs, equipment, cost of medication, etc). See Terms of Service.
Can you order COVID testing?
We can’t directly order a COVID test, but if the K Health provider recommends a test be taken, we can provide paperwork to help ensure a test can be ordered elsewhere. We’ll also give guidance on how to best manage COVID symptoms.
Can I use my insurance to pay for this?
No, but it’s cheaper than your insurance copay so you still win!
Can I use an FSA or HSA to pay?
Yes, prescription medication, telemedicine, and telehealth visits are eligible for reimbursement with a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA) and health reimbursement arrangement (HRA).
You can submit a claim to be reimbursed by your FSA, HSA, or HRA provider whenever you make a payment to K Health for your medication, K Health membership (which includes unlimited Primary Care, Mental Health, Pediatric, and Urgent Care visits), specialized treatment plans, or one-time visit.
If you have an FSA or HSA debit card, it can be used to pay for one-time K Health visits or prescriptions you pick up in-person at the pharmacy. You can't use your FSA or HSA debit card for any recurring payments, which includes a K Health membership or an ED treatment plan.
How is Coronavirus transmitted?
Coronavirus spreads mainly from person to person, typically through respiratory droplets expelled from coughing, sneezing or talking. It is possible, but rarer, to get coronavirus from touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching your own mouth, nose or eyes.
