Strep. Tonsillitis. Sore Throat.
Oh My.

Strep Throat is a painful and potentially serious condition caused by a specific type of bacteria. It is generally spread by sharing food, drinks, or by contact with saliva from an infected individual.

Circle Medical providers can evaluate strep throat symptoms over video and assist in treating sore throats caused by strep or other causes. Viruses cause most throat infections. A throat infection caused by a virus or a bacteria generally will self-resolve in 7 days and does not need any antibiotics. However, a rare but severe complication can arise from having contracted Strep throat.

Meet with a doctor to determine your risks and review if symptomatic support is appropriate or if an antibiotic is needed.

Frequently Asked

Appointments

What can I expect during my appointment?

During your appointment, your provider will conduct a full evaluation of your symptoms and may perscribe medications or treatments as needed, which will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice the same day. If necessary, the provider may refer you out to a local lab for testing, or to a pulmonary specialist.

Can my Strep Throat, Tonsillitis, or sore throat be assessed and treated via a video appointment from home?

Yes. Circle Medical providers are board certified primary care providers who specialize in diagnosing and treating Strep Throat, Tonsillitis, and other medical conditions from the comfort of your own home.

Do I need to go to urgent care to treat my Strep Throat symptoms?

At Circle Medical, all of your visits can be performed from the comfort of your own home. No driving to an in person clinic, experiencing long wait times, risking exposure from other sick patients, and not knowing the provider that is going to treat you. If you are already a Circle Medical patient, you can be seen by your current Circle Medical provider for Strep Throat diagnosis and treatments.

If your provider determines that you are suffering from a severe case of Strep Throat and require acute treatment, they may recommend you visit an Urgent Care center.

How soon will I receive my prescriptions?

Your provider will send your prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy the same day as your visit.

Can Circle Medical providers provide treatment for other medical problems besides Strep Throat and Tonsillitis?

Yes. At Circle Medical, all of our healthcare providers are board-certified primary care providers who can treat a wide array of health conditions.

Is my provider able to refer me to a specialist if it is needed?

Yes. Your provider can assist you in the treatment of your medical conditions as well as order imaging or referrals as needed.

General

What if I need in-person testing or examinations?

If any in-person care is needed, such as bloodwork, vaccinations, or other testing, our providers are able to send the appropriate request to a nearby lab. Results will be integrated with our HIPAA-compliant mobile app so that patients have access to all of their medical records in one secure place.

What states do you operate in?

To see our list of currently available states, begin booking an appointment.

You must be currently residing in the state of treatment as well as have your primary pharmacy be in that same state in order to be a patient at our practice.

How long are the appointments?

The first intake appointment is 30 minutes. Follow-up appointments are 20 minutes each.

Billing

How do I know how much my specific appointment will cost?

We provide a cost estimate when you are booking your appointment. For those with insurance, your actual cost is determined after we submit the insurance claim for your appointment. Once we submit the claim, insurance companies will pay for a portion of the appointment and pass on any remaining cost to you. Once we know what this cost is, we will update you with an invoice within the app.

When do I get charged for my appointment?

For those with insurance, it typically takes 1-3 weeks for the insurance claim to be processed. Once processed, we’ll send you an invoice within the app with any remaining costs. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

For those without insurance (or with out of network insurance), we will send you the invoice 1-2 days after your appointment is completed. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

Insurance

What insurance do you accept?

We accept over 1,500+ insurance plans. We cover most of the major PPO insurance companies (payors) across the United States. The best way to confirm coverage of your insurance plan is to begin booking an appointment on our website or via our mobile app. During the booking process, you’ll be prompted to enter your insurance information for a real-time verification of your insurance plan.

What if I am having issues verifying my insurance plan coverage?

The best way to confirm your insurance plan coverage is to call the Member Services phone number on the back of your insurance card. If needed, you can reference our Tax ID#: 474883537 and our NPI: 1134596091. Once you are able to confirm your coverage and your primary care copay costs, you can use the in-app chat to message our team with the information. We’ll then follow up with confirmation.

What is the total cost of diagnosis and treatment?

Your per-appointment costs are set by your insurance plan. If the costs seem high, you may be on a high deductible health plan (HDHP). This means that you have an annual out-of-pocket amount that you must pay on healthcare in a given year before your insurance plan will cover more of your per-appointment costs. 

If you are on an HDHP and have confirmed your insurance information in our mobile app, your remaining deductible for the year will be displayed on the “Book Appointment” page. Note that this amount may be outdated if you have had recent insurance claims processed.
