Cost-effective alternatives to the emergency room.
Visiting the ER is time consuming and expensive, for you and for your employees. According to NEHI, the New England Health Institute, 56% of all ER visits are avoidable. Harvard Pilgrim offers members a variety of options to get non-emergency care in a different setting than the ER*, no matter where they live or work. Options include convenience care clinics, telemedicine or virtual visits through Doctor On Demand and urgent care centers. Depending on the members’ specific plan, out-of-pocket costs for these options are likely less expensive than an emergency room visit.
Doctor on Demand also provides behavioral health virtual visits.
