5. Does DollarCARE handle all medical conditions?
No. DollarCARE is designed to handle only acute, non-emergency medical issues. You should not use DollarCARE if you are experiencing a medical emergency. While DollarCARE is not intended to replace your primary care doctor for common or chronic conditions, a virtual doctor appointment can sometimes substitute for an in-person a primary care, urgent care, or an emergency room visit.

7. What if I need to see a doctor or specialist in-person for a service that DollarCARE doesn’t cover?

8. Can I pay cash at the doctor’s office if I don’t have insurance?
Yes, you can! Most people don’t know that you can Pay Cash at the doctor’s office or that Paying Cash is often less expensive than having insurance. But not all doctors will accept cash payments. Finding doctors who accept Cash Pay and comparing Cash Pay prices is nearly impossible. That’s a key benefit of becoming a DollarCARE Club member.
9. Can I use DollarCARE if I have health insurance?
Yes! You can use DollarCARE to manage your deductible or you can choose to not use your insurance and pay cash instead. If you’re like many people with insurance, you may often be afraid to use it because you don’t know how much you’re going to have to pay out of pocket. As a DollarCARE Club member, you can get most of the services you need online and use our DollarCARE platform to search for the best value for in-person care.
10. Where is DollarCARE available?
Our Online Clinic is available anywhere in the United States. You will have access to our network of board-certified providers based on the state you are located.

However, our In-Person and Pharmacy services are currently only available in Arizona.
11. Are the prices listed on the DollarCARE Platform search engine actual prices or estimates?
