Treatment for common conditions, tailored to you.

How it works

E-Visits at Rush are available adults 18 and older and children 3 months to 11 years who have visited a Rush provider in the past three years. Follow the steps below to get started:

  • Open up your MyChart account. (If you haven’t signed up for MyChart, free access to your online health record, you’ll need to do that first. Sign up for MyChart here.)
  • Once in your MyChart account, click on “Start an E-Visit” under Quick Links.
  • Fill out a secure online questionnaire including several questions, depending on your condition.
  • Less than an hour later, receive a MyChart message with a diagnosis and treatment plan created by a Rush provider. This plan will include any needed prescriptions, which Rush will send to your pharmacy of choice to be filled.

E-Visits at Rush is not for emergencies. If you have an urgent medical need, call 911 — or visit your nearest emergency department or urgent care facility.

E-Visits at Rush hours

  • Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

If you complete an E-Visit questionnaire outside these hours, you will receive a response within an hour after E-Visit services at Rush begin again at 8 a.m.

Conditions treated

  • Flu
  • Cough and cold
  • Sinus pain or pressure
  • Bladder infection or urinary tract infection
  • Vaginal irritation
  • Back pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Heartburn
  • Red eye (requires uploaded photo)

If you need treatment for a condition other than these, you can make an appointment with a provider at Rush or visit one of Rush’s walk-in care locations.


Rush doesn’t bill insurance for E-Visits. Your credit, debit or health savings account (HSA) card will be charged $30 after you receive your diagnosis.

If it turns out that we need to see you before we can diagnose your condition, we’ll help you schedule an in-person appointment, and you will not be charged.
