Lots of things are going up in price these days, but not this. Amazon is celebrating their just-finished acquisition of One Medical by slashing the price of a subscription with the healthcare provider.
We’ve said a lot about Amazon health clinics, but the most exciting development is the fact that they’ve reduced the annual cost of a One Medical membership by 28% — from $199/year to $144/year.
That’s $12 a month for access to personalized primary care services, on-site labs, and virtual care. Here’s everything you need to know about this offer before you sign up:
Amazon One Medical is offering their 24/7 services for just $12/month.
One Medical is one of the largest independent primary healthcare groups in the U.S., offering a range of primary care and preventative health services. Just like you pay an annual fee to get unlimited 2-day shipping and other perks with Amazon Prime, members of One Medical pay an annual fee for ongoing access to a range of medical services.
To celebrate closing the deal on buying One Medical, Amazon has discounted the One Medical annual membership by 28%. Here’s what you get when you sign up for the $144 first-year membership price:
- You can connect with One Medical’s primary care services through their app, which lets you access virtual care services like 24/7 video chats and messaging.
- With One Medical, you can get in-office or remote visits as soon as the same or the next day, and they even have walk-in availability for lab services.
- One Medical providers can help with both your physical and mental health needs, and they can coordinate with other hospitals for more comprehensive care.
- You can easily access all your medical info in One Medical’s app, from prescription refills to lab results to specialty referrals.
- One Medical has specialized senior care available in more locations, with teams trained to help people on Medicare.
Note: After the first year, you’ll pay the regular annual fee, which is $199/year as of 2023.
Amazon One Medical can help people without insurance get affordable ongoing medical care.
The average cost for an uninsured patient to see a doctor is between $150 – $450 per visit, and even most telehealth options cost $30 and up per appointment. One Medical’s membership, on the other hand, offers an “unlimited” price of $12/month.
One Medical’s services are also more accessible than traditional healthcare with virtual care services and same-day and next-day appointments, which can be especially important for individuals with transportation or time constraints.
Even if you have traditional medical insurance, Amazon One Medical can save you money.
Even with insurance, traditional healthcare can be expensive, with co-pays, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket costs. One of the benefits of One Medical’s membership model is that it can help patients avoid some of these costs. By paying an annual fee, patients can access a range of services without having to worry about co-pays or deductibles.
But for extra fee services like in-person visits and labs, One Medical accepts most major insurance plans.
