This Startup Just Got Approval to Diagnose Your Sniffles Via Text Chat

May 1, 2018

In mid-April I decided to do something I hadn’t done in years: see a doctor. My cough had gotten so bad that I couldn’t avoid it any longer. After work, I walked into my local urgent care center for the first time and filled out some paperwork.

About 20 minutes later, the receptionist told me the center couldn’t determine whether or not it accepted my insurance. He had tried calling the provider, but its office was closed for the day. He and a physician’s assistant explained that I could either get treated now and risk taking on a high bill, or go home and try all over again tomorrow.

The choice was easy for me–I wasn’t about to risk paying several hundred dollars for something that could wait till morning.
