Care for children ages 1-17 years old must be requested by a parent or legal guardian eligible for 98point6. In order to receive care, the child must also be eligible for 98point6 through the parent or guardian’s plan.
To request care for your child, begin a visit as you normally would. A list of your eligible dependents ages 1-17 will appear. Select who you’re seeking care for, and complete the child’s profile.
Next, the automated assistant will gather information about the child’s symptoms, then will deliver the information to one of 98point6’s board-certified physicians. The physician will have a text-based conversation with you about your child’s symptoms, using audio, video or photos as needed. For younger children (i.e., under age 5), the physician will likely request a brief video encounter.
