The convenience and accessibility you’ve come to expect in everyday life can now be used to get primary care. Forget the hassle of appointments, waiting rooms and scheduling. Now, there’s 98point6.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
There are two ways to get 98point6: via a Personal Plan or an Employer-sponsored Plan.
Personal Plans are available for a low introductory rate of $20 for the first year ($120 for year two) that covers year-long access to primary care, and you pay just $1 per visit. (Please note, only one patient per account.)
Sponsored Plans provide access to 98point6 at no charge and offer visits at low/no cost to employees and their adult dependents. For specifics, please check with your employer.
WHAT DOES MY PERSONAL PLAN SUBSCRIPTION COVER?
Your 98point6 Personal Plan provides you access to our our board-certified physicians who provide consultation, diagnosis and treatment for just $1 per visit. 98point6 does not bill insurance. Patients are responsible for potential outside-of-app costs related to each visit, which may include prescriptions, lab costs, over-the-counter medication or referral to an in-person physician.
DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?
No appointments necessary. Just sign in to the app and start a visit. It’s access to care when and where you need it.
WHO ARE YOUR DOCTORS?
Carefully selected, board-certified physicians who are passionate about making care more accessible and affordable. They are specially trained to treat and diagnose via text-based care. (98point6 supports photo, video and audio as needed.)
DO I NEED HEALTH INSURANCE?
No, you don’t. Simply sign up for our Personal Plan for access to our board-certified physicians. If your treatment plan includes a prescription, a referral or labs, you can apply your insurance to pay for those outside-app expenses.
WHAT CAN I USE 98POINT6 FOR?
98point6 treats the full spectrum of primary care. Our doctors answer questions, diagnose and treat acute illnesses and order any necessary prescriptions or labs. If we can’t offer treatment, we’ll refer you to an in-person physician for the appropriate next step. Common conditions we treat include:
• Acid reflux, heartburn and digestive issues
• Allergies, asthma and respiratory issues
• Back problems, aches and pains
• Cold, cough and flu

Ratings and Reviews
Super convenient, makes getting help easy!
I have used this service multiple times for a variety of things (stomach flu, foot pain, random questions) and each time I am amazed by how easy it is to use! I absolutely hate going to the doctor for things I think are trivial or that I’m just going to be asked to make another appointment next week to “check back in” and waste another 3 hours of my life, so 98point6 has been a great solution for me to actually get in touch with a doctor (and limit anxiety doing so!). Now the “check back in” part of getting care, if I’m not feeling better, takes 15 minutes, not half my day. Never once has a 98point6 doctor I’ve talked to made me feel silly for asking a question or not knowing information, and each time I learn something that I never have time to ask my actual doctor about in our annual 10 minute check in. Overall 11/10, would recommend. I tell all my friends to use this whenever they are sick at home or not feeling well at work, seriously try it out.
Simple and Awesome
I don’t have insurance so $20 for a year is an unbelievable deal!! I’ve been sick for over a week and after doing a ton of research online and trying to find the best service for the best price I landed here. Within an hour I’ve already spoken to a doctor and got the meds I need. And to have the peace of mind to know that I can just pop on here any time in the next 12 months is truly priceless for someone on a tight budget with no insurance! I cannot thank the people who came up with this idea enough. Honestly, even the post-first-year price of $120/year is a deal. That’s only $10/month to see a doc anytime. I think I’ll be sticking with this app for the long haul. Once I’m no longer sick I’m looking forward to trying it for things like my birth control and getting back on thyroid meds. Thank you all so much!
Diagnosed and prescribed treatment for rosacea in a matter of minutes
I had a nagging suspicion for months that I had rosacea on my cheek, but didn’t want to spend the time or money to go to the doctor if that wasn’t the case. While at home one weekend, I was able to chat with a doctor who, after seeing the requested photo of my cheek, was able to diagnose me with rosacea and had a prescription sent to my pharmacy. It was so helpful to be able to clear up and receive treatment for an issue that had been bothering me for months in just a matter of minutes.
