With four kids and everyone back to school, we were ready to try something new when it comes to healthcare. Our pediatricians office is very strict right now (and rightfully so) when it comes to sick visits in the office. Everyone automatically suspects covid, so I understand not wanting to potentially infect others. But we needed another way to asses our kids if they were under the weather other than heading to urgent care every time (that gets SO costly!)
We’ve already had three colds in our house this school year, so when I discovered Blueberry Pediatrics (telehealth for kids), I decided to give it a go. We were ready for a more streamlined and cost effective way to get our kids checked out. I was super impressed with the price of having access to a pediatrician 24/7! In fact, I wish I had known about this a while ago. We could have used it a few times now.
Blueberry’s membership is only $18 per month or $144 per year (which makes it $12 a month) and includes care for all of our kids! For a family with four kids, having a Blueberry membership makes so much sense because it covers all of the children (3 under 18) in our household – and there are never any additional fees. Seriously, this is less than the cost of a single urgent care visit for ONE kid!
With Blueberry Pediatrics we can call, text or video chat directly with a pediatrician…and the best part….when someone is sick in the middle of the night, no worries- we can STILL connect with a Blueberry Pediatrics pediatrician! I love that we can message our team (like we would our family or friends) and hear back in minutes.
- No more answering services.
- No more waiting on hold forever.
- No more trying to convince a nurse that they need to escalate your call.
With Blueberry Pediatrics, we will always get connected with a Pediatrician within minutes.
So what is telehealth and how does it works?
Telehealth is virtual healthcare visits through a telehealth platform that helps if you are unsure whether your child needs an in-person exam or if you need to go to the ER.
You don’t waste time sitting in a waiting room for hours worrying. And you don’t waste money on expensive urgent care visits.
Here is a pediatricians guide to telehealth. We’ll never be alone trying to figure out the next steps in our child’s care. Our Blueberry Pediatrics team of pediatricians will always available 24/7, 365 days a year, including holidays!
So, what does Blueberry Pediatrics treat?
The Blueberry Pediatrics team can diagnose and treat a wide variety of ailments, saving us from expensive trips to the doctor’s office and urgent care for common issues like:
- Sinus infections
- Ear Infections
- Pink Eye
- Runny Nose
- General questions
- Cuts & Scrapes
- Abdominal Pain
- Stings & Bites
- UTIs (
- Strep (Blueberry Pediatricians will treat strep if an at-home rapid strep test is positive. You’ll have to contact their support team to get recommendations on at-home rapid strep tests.)
- And more
Keep in mind that Blueberry is not a replacement for your primary care provider. You should still see your child’s primary care doctor for:
- Wellness visits
- Chronic condition management
- ADHD management
- Specialist referrals
Sounds amazing right??!?!
