SAN FRANCISCO, July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, PlushCare, which allows anyone to get treatment from a world-class doctor on their smartphone or computer, announced that they are now serving over 100,000 patients.
Founded in 2014, PlushCare is modernizing healthcare by providing urgent and primary care, virtually. Patients can sign up and speak with a doctor in just a few minutes and get diagnosed, treated and prescribed medication via the PlushCare website and mobile applications. Every one of PlushCare's 60+ doctors has been trained at a top 50 medical institution and goes through a rigorous screening and training process.
PlushCare doctors screen for and treat everything from the flu and UTI to ongoing conditions like diabetes and HIV prophylactic treatment, PrEP. The latter has been a large part of PlushCare's explosive growth. PlushCare is now the largest nationwide online provider of PrEP in the country, serving nearly 500 new patients each month.
"Navigating today's medical system is complicated. We've found that our patients appreciate the simplicity and convenience of our services," says Dr. James Wantuck, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of PlushCare. "We're also extremely proud of our 90+ NPS scores, the highest in healthcare. It means that patients are coming back for second, third, and fourth visits, seeing PlushCare as their new primary care doctor."
Access to high quality physicians has long been a challenge for patients, particularly those located outside of metropolitan areas. PlushCare is bridging that gap by enabling patients from all over the country to access high caliber physicians. PlushCare is currently serving all 50 states, making it one of the handful of medical providers able to do so.
Another thing that has made PlushCare so appealing to consumers is the price. Americans have become accustomed to paying $200 or more to visit an urgent care center or primary care doctor. PlushCare accepts most major insurance, so the majority of patients pay less than $30 for a PlushCare doctor visit. Uninsured patients pay just a $99 flat fee.
According to some sources, online doctor visits are growing by more than 20% per year. PlushCare's 100,000 patient milestone shows just how normative telehealth is becoming.
