  2. A Virtuwell visit starts with a quick online interview that checks your history and makes sure the problem isn’t serious.
  3. Next, 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.
