What is MUSC Health Virtual Care?
MUSC Health Virtual Care is an easy, online way to be treated for common conditions. You can choose one of four convenient virtual care visit types:
- Complete an online health interview: You’ll answer a series of questions about how you’re feeling and the symptoms you’re experiencing. You may be asked to upload a photo of areas of concern. Your answers will be submitted to an MUSC Health provider for review and to create a treatment plan. You’ll be notified when your results are available – usually within four hours during office hours or first thing the next morning if your visit is completed after hours. If a prescription is part of your treatment plan, you’ll be able to send the prescription to the pharmacy of your choice. Cost: $25
- Complete a chat visit: You’ll provide basic information about your symptoms before your chat with an MUSC Health provider begins. During the chat, you’ll discuss your symptoms. A treatment plan and prescription, if applicable, will be provided shortly after completion of your chat visit. Cost: $35
- Complete a phone visit: You’ll provide basic information about your symptoms and enter your phone number. An MUSC Health provider will call you to discuss your symptoms. A treatment plan and prescription, if applicable, will be provided shortly after completion of your phone visit. Cost: $35
- Complete a video visit: You’ll provide basic information about your symptoms before entering a video waiting room. When your video visit begins, you’ll speak directly with an MUSC Health provider about your symptoms. Your provider will create a treatment plan, which will include a prescription if necessary. Cost: $45
Who will provide my virtual visit care?
A licensed, board-certified MUSC Health provider will review your symptoms, make a diagnosis and develop your treatment plan.

If your health concern cannot be addressed through MUSC Health Virtual Care, you’ll be directed to a Tidelands Health location for care. You will not be charged for a virtual visit.
Can I get a prescription via virtual care?
MUSC Health Virtual Care providers are licensed to prescribe certain medications as part of your care plan, if clinically appropriate. Prescriptions for pain medications or narcotics are not available via virtual care. If a prescription medication is part of your treatment plan, you can send it to the pharmacy of your choice. You are responsible for the cost of any prescriptions, over-the-counter treatments or follow-up visits you may need related to prescriptions.
