Bayhealth is Meeting Community’s Urgent Health Needs Virtually: Special Incentive Extended for First Visit Free

Tuesday, February 22, 2022 | Expanded Services
As Bayhealth continues to support the health needs of local residents, its new 24/7 virtual urgent health care service called Bayhealth@Home, has already been well received by community members. Based on positive feedback, a special offer to receive one free virtual urgent care visit per user is now being extended. Through March 11, community members can use a coupon code that waives the fee on their first virtual urgent care visit on Bayhealth@Home. This service is available online or via a mobile app (BayhealthAtHome), enabling anyone to get the care they need whenever they need it and from the comfort of their home.

“We’re so pleased that local residents are enjoying the ease and convenience of our new virtual urgent care service, Bayhealth@Home,” said Bayhealth Vice President and Chief Medical Information Officer Dr. Jonathan Kaufmann. “There has been such a great response to this service and our coupon code that we have extended it through March 11 to allow even more community members to benefit from it.”

During various points of the pandemic and particularly in recent months, many emergency departments, walk-in centers and physician offices have seen higher than normal patient volumes. Dr. Kaufmann reminds the public that a visit to a hospital emergency department should be for those who are having a true medical emergency or are seriously ill. Bayhealth@Home is a particularly useful alternative for non-emergency illnesses or injuries of all kinds, he said.

“With Bayhealth@Home, individuals are connecting with a US board-certified doctor in as few as 10 minutes and getting the treatment and guidance they need. You can have this secure and private virtual visit through your computer or mobile device at any time of day or night. It’s a great option if you’re feeling too sick to go out, too busy to wait for an in-person visit or are traveling and have an urgent care need come up,” explained Dr. Kaufmann. “At Bayhealth we are proud to be expanding upon our services to keep our local communities healthy and help patients by meeting them where they are.”

To sign up for the service and receive the free virtual visit coupon, patients can download the BayhealthAtHome mobile app on IOS and Android devices or visit Bayhealth.org/Virtual-Urgent-Care.

*Coupon is limited to one person per household. Offer valid through 3/11/22.
