On-Demand Video Visits

Connect with a provider over video chat within 20 minutes, without an appointment, or choose a time that works for you.

07:00-21:00

How it works

Video visits are fast, easy and convenient.

  • Check in for a video visit and get a notification within 20 minutes that a provider is ready to connect or select a same-day appointment time. 
  • Chat one-on-one with a live Rush provider. If you need prescriptions, they’ll be sent to your pharmacy of choice.

Video visits are available to adults and to children older than 3 months. New and existing patients are accepted. 

For the best possible experience, access video visits on the My Rush app, available on the App Store and Google Play.

Virtual visits are not for emergencies. If you have an urgent medical need, call 911 — or visit your nearest emergency department or urgent care facility. If you have questions or concerns about your on-demand video visit, please call (312) 563-0372

Payment

We’ve recently updated our payment process and insurance coverage for video visit appointments. Your payment will be determined after your visit based on your care and insurance plan. We may bill you and/or your insurance for the relevant amount after your appointment. You may be charged a copay that you can choose to pay at the time of your visit or later.

Before your virtual visit, be sure to have your insurance card with you. Please note: it is your responsibility to confirm if your virtual visit is covered by your insurance. Here, you can find a list of all insurance plans that Rush participates in.
