Not this site: Try Health Tap Prime- on line consultation-there is a fee. Ask about the insurance.

No, you need testing: This is the public HT platform that answers general questions but does not offer treatment. There is a fee based HT Prime, but if you expect Aetna to pay it must be an existing provider. For proper treatment you need to get seen & have testing. Treatment will focus on identifying what if anything you have. No one antibiotic covers for all possibilities.
