3 Ways an Online Pediatrician Can Save You Money

Today, the world is at our fingertips. With the evolution of accessibility comes the ability to get greater access to care for our little ones. Virtual pediatrician services are a convenient way to access the care your child needs – anywhere at any time. And beyond the convenience, an online pediatrician can help save you money. 

Cut Down on Unnecessary Doctor Visits

Reducing unnecessary doctor's visits can be a significant cost savings. How many times have we shown up to the doctor's office, paid a co-pay, and found out that our child has a viral illness and the only thing to do is treat the symptoms and wait it out? This same news can come from a virtual pediatrician – and save the trip to the office. 

Visit the Doctor on Your Own Time

A sick child is one of the most common reasons a parent has to miss work. The costs of a sick day add up from missed time at work to costly trips to the doctor. A virtual visit to the pediatrician can help cut down on these. Time is money, and taking a PTO day is an expensive thing to do. With a virtual pediatrician who provides access hours outside the regular 9-5, you can take care of your child's doctor's office needs before or after work hours. 

You Have After-Hours Care Options

You never know when an illness will strike – and it's never at a "great time." With a virtual pediatrician, urgent care or the ER are not the only options when your child needs care after hours. Cut down on the cost of a special visit and see if an online provider can guide you to get through the night and visit your child's in-person provider in the morning. 

Choose the Right Online Pediatrician

Once you realize the cost savings of an online pediatrician, it's time to choose the right one for your child's care. ParentMD is your source for reliable virtual pediatrician care. Once you create your account, you can schedule a virtual visit any time of day and be seen by a board-certified pediatrician within 30 minutes. Parents who've used the service agree – it's a lifesaver.
