Terms and Conditions

Virtual on-demand visits are offered for your convenience and to save you time by providing care through MyChart.

Should I Use Virtual On-Demand?

A virtual on-demand visit can replace a clinic appointment or certain Urgent Care visits. You will not need to wait for an appointment or leave the comfort of your home.

Virtual on-demand visits should be used only for non-urgent medical conditions. If you need urgent medical care, please contact your clinic by phone or find a nearby urgent care center. For medical emergencies, call 911 immediately.

What to Expect During a Virtual On-Demand Visit

After accepting these terms and conditions, you will be prompted through a series of screens to gather information, similar to an in person office visit. After entering all the applicable information and submitting you virtual on-demand, you provider will respond back to you through MyChart. Depending on your condition or reason for visit, it could take you approximately 10-20 minutes to complete these virtual on-demand screens. Please be prepared to fill in all information as you cannot save the information and resume at a later time. If you have not received a response from your provider’s office within 1 business day (weekends and holidays excluded) of submitting your virtual on-demand visit, please contact that office.

Is There a Charge or Cost for Using Virtual On-Demand?

Just as in person office visits are chargeable services, virtual on-demand visits are as well. During this process you may be asked for demographic and insurance information. Saint Francis will file a claim to your insurance (s), if applicable, and you will receive a statement for any remaining balance owed by you.  If you do not have insurance, you will receive a statement for the uninsured patient cost. If your provider re-directs you to the clinic during the virtual on-demand visit, or if the virtual on-demand visit is not completed, you will not be responsible for any balances related to the virtual on-demand visit.

Some restrictions may apply for non-Missouri residents. Depending on your internet service provider and/or cell phone carrier, some service provider / carrier charges may apply.
