DirectConnect

CoxHealth

Missourians now have another option when it comes to seeking treatment for minor illnesses.  CoxHealth has expanded its telemedicine service, DirectConnect, to individuals.  Previously, it had been offered only to employers.

Bridget O’Hara, product manager at Cox, said it’s an affordable option for those who need care—each “visit” is $49—and she said it frees up space in the ER and urgent care.

According to O’Hara, the service is easy to use.  She compares it to using Skype or Face Time.
