How does a HealthSapiens Medical Plan work?
Answer: Once you register as a new user, you simply log into your Patient Portal or call a toll-free number to request a consultation with a doctor. You can be speaking with a doctor in as little as 15 minutes by phone or video consultation. If a prescription is required, it will be sent to your preferred pharmacy for pickup or delivery. There's never a per-visit fee or co-pay, and you can avoid the doctor's office, waiting rooms, and the drive across town and back.
HealthSapiens is Health + Wellness on your schedule.
Do I need insurance for a HealthSapiens Medical plan?
Answer: You can sign up regardless of whether or not you have health insurance. There is never a co-pay or deductible -- you simply pay an affordable monthly subscription rate each month.

Is HealthSapiens an online pharmacy?
Answer: No, we are not a pharmacy. We connect patients with high performing Doctors in their home state that can diagnose and treat most acute health conditions remotely.
If your treatment involves a prescription, your HealthSapiens doctor will order your prescription, and you can pick it up at the pharmacy of your choice.
Note: Medication cost is payable separately and is not included in the cost of a HealthSapiens subscription.
Why is HealthSapiens Medical so affordable? Is there a catch?
Answer: There is no catch. Unlike insurance, there are no greedy intermediaries between you and our doctors.
The money you pay goes to our doctors with no payouts to insurance companies or government entities. That’s how healthcare should be, right?
Is HealthSapiens Medical the same as health insurance?
