AFC Urgent Care West Chester is now happy to offer telemedicine. Receive high-quality care from board-certified doctors and medical professionals without leaving the comfort of your home. This new option is an excellent choice if you do not have time to travel to our clinic for your illness or if you are concerned about the current COVID-19 outbreak. While our clinic remains open seven days a week for walk-in patients, this remains an option for many patients suffering from a variety of illnesses and injuries.
Telemedicine became available at AFC Urgent Care West Chester in April of 2020.
Making a telemedicine appointment is fairly straightforward and very easy. You do not need any special software or hardware to connect with a doctor. Just follow these steps:
Yes, we can screen you for COVID-19 with telemedicine. Our provider will evaluate you for a possible coronavirus infection and then give you guidance of the next steps based on your symptoms and condition. If you feel you may have a COVID-19 infection, this is our preferred way for you to start your assessment and treatment.
Some of the most common injuries and illnesses that can be treated with a virtual visit include:
Unfortunately, we cannot treat everything through a virtual visit. Some illnesses, injuries, and services that require an in-person appointment include:
In some cases, yes, we can approve of prescription medication refills with a virtual visit. We will not prescribe controlled or addictive substances, ADD, ADHD, or medications related to mental health with a virtual visit. Medications that treat chronic illnesses are limited to a one month supply.
Most insurances are covering telemedicine with little or no out-of-pocket cost sharing for the patient. So even if you have a high deductible plan, your AFC TeleCare visit could be covered at 100%! This will change as COVID-19 passes and stay-at-home orders are lifted. Your insurance company wants to make sure you take care of yourself during this outbreak which is why they are waiving some patient payment responsibilities for the next month or so. Please call our office if you have questions about your particular plan.
Our telemedicine platform can provide virtual healthcare services from the comfort of your home from the doctors you would visit at our clinic.Take advantage of this new service and book an appointment today to start to feel better. Please call if you have any questions!

Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
