Introducing free texting with your doctor

Last updated on September 14, 2021

More than 1 billion people ask the internet a health-related question every day. 

We’ve all done it. But few of us get a clear answer. Maybe because we’re asking the wrong source.

When it comes to your health, the best source for care and information is someone that knows you and your health history — your doctor. Thanks to HealthTap, communicating with them is as easy as typing in an internet search. 

With HealthTap, you can:

Choose + Keep + Text a doctor that knows you

The best part? All of this — and more — is just $15 per month.

FREE texting with your doctor. It’s not texting an automated system — it’s texting with the doctor you choose. One that knows your medical history. One you trust and have at your fingertips at all times. 

Access to primary care is a key factor in living a healthier, longer life. It’s also a great way to save on long-term health costs. A doctor who knows you is more likely to notice trends in your health over time and spot little problems before they become big issues.

All that is now more accessible than ever because all you have to do is open your HealthTap app and start texting.

Got a health question? Your doctor is standing by to answer.
