Free screenings for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) available online through Prevea Virtual Care
Green Bay, Wis. – Prevea Health is offering free online screening and evaluation for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) through Prevea Virtual Care at: www.prevea.com/virtualcare
Prevea Virtual Care visits for COVID-19 assess the patient’s symptoms and provide information about COVID-19. If additional care is needed, patients will be provided specific directions about where to go for lab testing and follow-up care to ensure they receive the care they need while maintaining a safe distance from others. If a patient needs additional lab tests or follow-up care, it will be billed to the patient’s insurance provider.
Prevea Virtual Care is available to anyone in the state of Wisconsin and you do not need to be an established Prevea patient to use it.
Those with symptoms of COVID-19—including fever, cough and shortness of breath—should stay home and use Prevea Virtual Care online or call (920) 431-1810 to receive a free assessment by phone. If symptoms are severe and life-threatening, they should call 911. If they prefer to travel to the emergency room on their own, they should call the hospital prior to their arrival to explain their symptoms. This will provide the emergency department time to prepare for their arrival and be sure that others in the area will be protected from the potential spread of infectious disease.
In addition to the COVID-19 assessment, Prevea Virtual Care also offers online diagnoses and treatment for a variety of common health conditions, allowing people to receive care from the safety and comfort of home which is especially important during this time. Prevea Virtual Care visits for common health conditions are offered for only $35 each.
