Start my virtual urgent care appointment
Common reasons for a virtual urgent care visit include:
Virtual urgent care should not be used for regular well-child check-ups, life-threatening emergencies or mental health crisis needs. If your child is experiencing a mental health crisis, please go to the nearest emergency room or contact their mental health care provider.
Paying for your virtual urgent clinic visit
Due to the public health emergency related to COVID-19, the regular copay amount required at the time of your virtual visit will be $0. However, please note, you may receive a follow-up bill from your insurance company or VCU Health for your copay or additional amounts. This visit will be billed as urgent care, not emergency care.
Emergency room vs urgent care: What is the difference?
Virtual urgent care is intended for Illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening. If your child is having trouble breathing or another life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room.
If your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms, we encourage you to seek emergency medical care NOT urgent care:
- High fever
- >100.3°F in infants younger than 3 months
- >100.3°F for more than three days in all other children
- Difficulty breathing
- Severe asthma attack
- Severe stomach pain, vomiting or diarrhea
- Broken bone
- Severe dehydration
