a legit doctor’s visit from home {American Well}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Well.

This past week and a half has been rough.  My daughter brought home a virus that she passed along to her brother, then me and finally her father.  We’ve all been miserable with stubborn fevers and an incredibly painful sore throat with cough.  After a couple days of persistent symptoms us moms all do the same thing (right?) – head to Google and self diagnose.  At one point, I was up at an unGodly hour convinced we all had West Nile Virus or maybe SARS.  No joke, these words were coming from my mouth.  My husband handed me a bag of cough drops and told me to go to sleep — good advice.

My little man is usually a total Wormy McSquirmy… never just lays down and relaxes, so I know when he is still he is sick… Follow us on Instagram to see all of his cute sick days!

The reality is, kids are SPONGES for germs and when two or more gather, sickness is not far behind.  It isn’t necessary to run off to the doctor’s office for every bug, especially when I think those waiting rooms harbor quite a few germs on their own.  BUT, when it gets to the point you are Googling at 3 AM and suspecting West Nile, maybe it is time for American Well.

American Well provides online doctor visits 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for only $49 a visit.  To top it off, many insurers are beginning to cover these telehealth visits for the same or lesser co-pay than a traditional in-person visit.  With American Health, you get a face to face visit (about 10 minutes) with a qualified physician — prescriptions and all — from your couch, wearing your robe and fuzzy slippers.

Just imagine.  Now your sick baby girl can talk to her pediatrician from the couch, in her pajamas, no other kids coughing and sneezing around her.  Brilliant!  I mean, I’m sold.  $49?! Our local Urgent Care charges $250 just for walking in the door, and that requires us all getting in the car.  Now I can see my doctor while lying in bed with this also sick little man… note the sad, glassy eyes! Miserable.
