The NYU Langone Health mobile app is only available for mobile devices. If you would like to use a computer instead of a mobile device, please make sure it has a working web camera, microphone, speakers, and high-speed internet connection. Internet Explorer and Google Chrome web browsers are compatible with this service. If this is your or your child’s first virtual urgent care visit, please accept the download for the VidyoWeb plug-in when you start your visit.
If you or your child needs care for a non-emergency condition, our virtual urgent care service offers a video visit with one of NYU Langone’s doctors at a time that works with your schedule. The visit takes place over a secure line, and your privacy is assured.
We treat adults as well as children ages 12 to 17. For a child’s visit, the parent or legal guardian must schedule the visit on behalf of the child. Our doctors can only treat your child if the parent or legal guardian is present during the visit.
Our doctors are licensed to practice medicine in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. You must be physically located within one of those states at the time of treatment.
With virtual urgent care, you or your child can do the following:
- receive an examination, diagnosis, and treatment from an NYU Langone emergency medicine doctor
- be treated for a variety of minor medical concerns such as cough, sore throat, flu-like symptoms, rash, allergies, and pink eye
- receive an after-visit summary containing a care plan and any follow-up instructions, including referrals for a specialist visit or diagnostic imaging
- have us notify your primary care physician to contact you about your visit
- have prescriptions provided by your virtual urgent care doctor sent to the pharmacy of your choice
- request interpretation assistance, available in more than 200 languages, if you prefer to speak a language other than English
Virtual urgent care services for children are provided through Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.
Virtual urgent care is not intended to replace a visit to a regular doctor for routine healthcare needs such as an annual physical. This service is intended to support your or your child’s care when the doctor’s office is closed or in between appointments for urgent needs. A referral is not needed to see a virtual urgent care doctor.

If you or your child requires an in-person visit to the doctor, we can help you find a doctor and schedule an appointment.

Your insurance plan may cover the cost of a virtual urgent care visit for you or your child. It is your responsibility to verify that you have specific benefit coverage for telemedicine services under your benefit plan.
For plans we accept, we collect your out-of-pocket responsibility for an office visit at the time of check-in and bill your insurance for the remaining balance. If your insurance doesn’t cover the balance in full, you are billed for any remaining balance.
If your insurance plan is not accepted or you do not want a claim submitted to your insurance carrier, you or your child can still use virtual urgent care and register as a self-pay patient. You are charged up to $126 for the visit, plus any additional fees associated with other services provided.
