What to expect from a virtual visit

A convenient alternative to in-person care, virtual visits can address more health conditions and services than you might expect—including urgent care. Virtual visits are available during regular clinic hours to people of all ages in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The cost is similar to an in-person visit, but you’ll save time and stress by avoiding travel, parking and busy waiting rooms.

Benefits include:

  • No travel, parking, or waiting rooms
  • Easy to do with kids around
  • Great for consults, follow-up care, questions and prescriptions
  • Private and secure connection via the Allina Health app
  • Personal, face-to-face communication
  • Predictable and comfortable format
  • Just as valuable as an in-person visit for many types of appointments
