For those students who cannot easily visit the clinic in person, or for those that would prefer it, MercyCare has provided a video visit option.

The video visits cover a wide range of patient needs – from acute care to the management of chronic conditions to follow-up appointments.

Following the visit, providers can send a prescription directly to a patient’s preferred pharmacy, if necessary. These visits are covered by most insurance carriers, and some carriers have chosen to waive cost-sharing at this time. Self-pay is also an option for this service.

To schedule a video visit or manage your health needs online, create a MyChart account. It's free to sign up.
