Get fast medical care—anytime anywhere—for 20 common conditions. Essentia E-Visit makes it easy and convenient for you to get the care you need from an Essentia Health provider online. Best of all, an E-Visit only costs $30. And, if you don’t get a diagnosis and treatment plan within 60 minutes, your visit is free!
If you need immediate medical care, call 911.
At this time, for the health of our community and patients, we are waiving the fee for E-visits related to screening and evaluation of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Testing ordered as a result of the screening will be billed to your insurance company and you may incur copayments for some services.
Anyone 2 or older living in Minnesota, Wisconsin, or North Dakota, can use this convenient and cost-effective online service. You don’t have to be an Essentia patient to have an E-Visit.
Our providers can treat the following common conditions during an E-Visit:
Having an Essentia E-Visit is easy. All you have to do is fill out a short questionnaire, which usually takes about 5 minutes. Your answers will be reviewed by an Essentia provider who will make a diagnosis and create a personalized care plan just for you. You’ll also be given a phone number to call if you have any questions or concerns about your care plan.
The whole process usually takes 60 minutes or less, and if it takes longer, your visit is free. You can start your E-Visit online, or if you are an existing Essentia patient and have a MyChart account, you can access the service via the portal.
If for some reason, your condition cannot be treated online, your provider may recommend that you seek in-person care with your primary care provider or a walk-in service like Urgent Care.

If your provider prescribes a medication, we’ll send your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice. Learn more about pharmacy services at Essentia.
An Essentia E-Visit costs only $30, and you will need a credit card to use the service. Your card won’t be charged until you receive your care plan, and some insurance providers will reimburse you for the cost of E-Visits.
