Has this bitterly cold weather caused you to catch a cold or sinus infection? Or do you have a child with an ear infection? Now there is a way to quickly and conveniently get care for these and over 40 common conditions. It’s called virtuwell. Developed by HealthPartners, virtuwell is an online clinic that treats everyday illnesses so you -- or your kids -- can get better faster.

How it works:

  1. Visit www.virtuwell.com.
  2. Start with a quick online interview that checks your history and makes sure the problem isn’t serious.
  3. A certified nurse practitioner will review your case and write your treatment plan. You’ll get an email or text the moment your plan is ready.
  4. If you need a prescription, we’ll send it to your pharmacy of choice.
  5. If you need to speak with a nurse practitioner about your plan, they’re available 24/7.
  6. Even if you are not a HealthPartners member, you can still use virtuwell.  Each visit is $40 or less depending on your health insurance.
