Your 24/7/365 On-Demand Doctor
Can’t get in to see your primary care provider (PCP) quickly enough? Thinking of going to the Emergency Room (ER) or Urgent Care Center for a non-emergency health issue?
Think about using MYidealDOCTOR™!
You can talk with a doctor using your home phone, smartphone or computer.
For those times when you can’t get a same day appointment with your PCP, or your PCP office is closed, MYidealDOCTOR may be an option. There’s no need to spend more money and time at an Urgent Care Center or ER. You can talk with a doctor at any time, any place – even from the comfort of home – in just minutes.
When Should I Use MYidealDOCTOR?
MYidealDOCTOR should not be used as your primary care provider, but this helpful service can be used when your doctor is unable to see you, or your issue is urgent, but not an emergency.
If you aren’t sure you need a doctor or should go to the emergency room, you can call CareSource24® first. The CareSource24 Nurse Advice Line can help you decide the best course of action for your symptoms and can even transfer you to MYidealDOCTOR. No need to make another call.

What Can I Expect From A MYidealDOCTOR Consultation?
Most MYidealDOCTOR visits last about 10 minutes. You can get medical advice, diagnosis and even prescription medication when needed.
If a prescription is needed for your issue, you can pick up the medication at your regular network pharmacy or any network pharmacy that you choose.
After four hours, a MYidealDOCTOR nurse will call to make sure you were able to get your prescription and to see if you have any follow-up questions.
Then after 72 hours, you will get another follow-up call to make sure you are feeling better and the medication or treatment is working. If you need more care, the nurse will help you follow up with either CareSource24 or your PCP.
