ZOOM+Care Chat providers follow evidence-based guidelines to determine if self-care, medication, or a referral to a ZOOM+Care clinic is right for you. We require patients to have had at least one visit in the last 12 months in order to get diagnostic and treatment services through Chat.
Self-care: Sometimes, you just need to hydrate and catch up on sleep. We'll send you instructions to get better from the comfort of your home.
Medication: If your ChatCare™ provider thinks you need meds, we'll send the prescription to the local pharmacy of your choice.
In-person visit: We'll let you know if it's best to head to a ZOOM+Care clinic. You'll be able to schedule a same-day visit while chatting with your providers.
Conditions commonly treated through ChatCare™ include:
Your ZOOM+Care doctor will chat with you to determine if you need an in-person visit at a ZOOM+Care clinic to complete your diagnosis and treatment.
Conditions that require an in-person visit:

NOTE: If you believe you previously added your child or dependent to your ZOOM+Care account, but they don't show up as an option when starting a new chat, it's possible they're linked to another responsible party's account. Have your spouse, partner, or another responsible party login to their ZOOM+Care account and try again.
