FAQs

Urgent Care

When should I book an urgent care visit or go to an urgent care clinic?

Urgent care allows you to check in with a doctor about a non-life-threatening condition. Addressing a condition or symptom early can help your doctor craft a treatment plan that works for you and addresses your symptoms. Urgent care is suitable for conditions that, while uncomfortable, do not require emergency room care.

If you're experiencing a life-threatening condition, call 911 immediately. Urgent care is not appropriate for life-threatening symptoms.

Speak with a licensed urgent care doctor on Sesame today for a simple, upfront, cash price - with no unexpected charges or copays.

Do urgent care clinics offer walk-in appointments?

If you are experiencing a medical emergency or life-threatening symptoms, call 911 immediately.

For relief from non-life-threatening conditions, you can walk into most urgent care clinics from about 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Walk-in clinics can be crowded, so you might experience long wait times.

Skip the wait by booking a video urgent care visit on Sesame. Simply find a doctor you want to see, compare prices, and pay an upfront price to schedule your appointment. On Sesame, you can find urgent healthcare services with doctors who specialize in family medicine, pediatrics, dermatology, and more. Many healthcare providers on Sesame offer appointments from 7 am - 12 am.

How long does it take to get seen at an urgent care?

At some urgent cares or medical centers, you may experience long wait times. But not with Sesame. When you book a virtual visit with Sesame, you'll never experience a wait time or line. On Sesame, you can see a doctor in a matter of minutes, whether you live in Hartford, Connecticut, Dallas, Texas, or any other city across the United States.

How much does an urgent care visit cost?

Urgent care visits at walk-in clinics can cost anywhere from $100-$200, even if you have insurance. With Sesame, you can save 60% on urgent care visits in Desha, AR. Licensed urgent care doctors post upfront, cash prices on Sesame for their services. The price you see is the price you pay - no surprise fees or copays.

When should I book an urgent visit?

Urgent visits are recommended for non-life-threatening conditions. If you are experiencing a medical emergency or any life-threatening symptoms, call 911 immediately.

Urgent care providers on Sesame can help with a wide range of non-life-threatening conditions, including: - Minor illness (cold & flu)
- Sore throat

Should I book an urgent care visit or go to the emergency room?

If you're experiencing a medical emergency or any life-threatening symptoms or conditions, you call 911 immediately or visit the emergency room or emergency department of a local clinic as soon as possible. If you have an urgent need for a non-life-threatening condition, you should be able to address your concerns through an urgent care visit. Note that on Sesame, urgent care visits may not necessarily be through a clinic that's part of the urgent care association or some kind of body that offers urgent care accreditation. Instead, our visits are always with quality board-certified doctors and providers who have experience treating and caring for patients in Desha, AR.

Should I see a doctor in-person or online?

It depends. Telehealth platforms like Sesame make it easier than ever to see a doctor online from the comfort of your home through virtual visits. These are real-time video chats with doctors and providers that are used to address symptoms, discuss prescriptions, and screen for health care conditions. Telehealth (also known as telemedicine) is a convenient way to see a health care provider without requiring the commute and waiting rooms of office visits.

In-person visits, however, are vital health services. Certain conditions and specialty care services cannot be diagnosed or performed via a telehealth visit. Lab testing, for instance, often requires an in-person appointment at a doctor's office. Similarly, some physical exams, chronic condition consultations, and urgent care needs require in-person care. Some patients feel more comfortable receiving their care through in-person doctor visits, and many telehealth services require in-person visits before a condition can be definitively diagnosed.

Health care marketplaces like Sesame offer both in-person and virtual care options. If you're unsure whether or not you need to see a provider face-to-face, we recommend that you book a video doctor visit to discuss your concerns and talk through any symptoms you may be experiencing. If an in-person doctor appointment is required, you can easily book a visit through Sesame's scheduling platform.

What is a video urgent care visit?

Video urgent care visits are telemedicine visits for any urgent needs. While most urgent cares may charge you $125 or more for a walk-in visit without insurance in Desha, AR, you can see a doctor on Sesame for something urgent for as low as $35 depending on your location. Doctors, primary care physicians, and NPs on Sesame offer quality care for a range of urgent needs, like sore throats, sprains, questions and concerns about coronavirus, UTIs and other infections, and other non-life-threatening conditions. Nope, it's not too good to be true. It's healthcare the way you wish it would be: simple and affordable.

Why should I book a video urgent care visit and how much will it cost?

Video urgent care offers patients quick and efficient care for a variety of conditions. It cuts out the long lines and lengthy check-in procedures that make trips to the local in-person clinic a hassle and gets you the relief you need quickly and affordably.

Save up to 60% on emergency care services by booking a video consult on Sesame, where you can connect with a real doctor licensed to treat urgent conditions in Desha, AR for a simple cash price - no hidden fees or copays.

What conditions can be treated over a video urgent care visit?

You can address a range of conditions during a video urgent care visit, including colds, UTIs, vaginal infections, rashes, and severe skin irritation. You can also ask the doctor questions about the COVID-19 vaccines and STD testing and speak about any general concerns you have about your health. During the coronavirus pandemic, many urgent cares have offered rapid testing, antibody testing, and more COVID-19 testing options. While you can't be tested for COVID-19 over video, Sesame does offer video COVID-19 screenings as well as in-person testing across the country.

What should I bring to a video urgent care visit?

Come prepared to discuss any symptoms or conditions you may be experiencing, as well as any questions you may have for your doctor. During your visit, your doctor will likely ask about your medical history, your symptoms, or any underlying conditions, as well as any medication you may currently be taking.

What should I do if my child has a fever?

In most cases, you can help reduce your child's temperature by:
- Applying a cool compress on their forehead
- Giving a lukewarm sponge bath
- Giving your child children's acetaminophen to help reduce fever, if your child is older than 2 years of age. (To avoid a serious condition called Reye's syndrome, never give your child aspirin.)


If your child (older than 3 months) has a fever of 104 F, you should speak with an advice nurse or pediatrician. Infants under 3 months should seek medical care with a temperature of 100.4 F or higher.

Other symptoms that accompany a fever, such as a stiff neck, ear pain, sore throat, or severe headache may indicate a bigger issue.

What is pediatric urgent care?

Pediatric urgent care centers treat minor medical emergencies, offer vaccinations, and perform lab work for newborns, children, and teenagers.

Sesame offers telemedicine appointments, including video pediatric urgent care visits, for any non-life-threatening urgent care needs. It's perfect for fevers, sore throats, sprains, infections, and accessible from the comfort of your home.

What are the benefits of pediatric urgent care?

Pediatric urgent care offers an accessible and kid-friendly space to take your child for healthcare services in the event of a minor emergency.

Whether your child has strep throat or needs an x-ray, consider booking a pediatric telehealth appointment with Sesame, with appointments available as early as today.

Can I get X-rays and other imaging through Sesame?

Yes, but not through a video urgent care visit. While our doctors can't offer digital X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging over video, we do offer affordable imaging services with state-of-the-art imaging in cities across the country.

What are prescription drugs?

Prescription drugs are the specific medication prescribed by a doctor or health care professional, as a part of a health plan for a patient. Prescriptions are often separated into two categories: controlled and non-controlled substances.

Non-Controlled Substances

Most prescription drugs are non-controlled substances. This means that they are unlikely to cause harm or lead to drug abuse. Prescription medicine treats medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, and bacterial infections. These drugs are unlikely to cause harm or lead to drug abuse in patients. Non-controlled substances are not the same thing as over-the-counter medication; a prescription is still needed for these drugs.

Controlled Substances

Controlled substance medication is used to treat medical conditions such as pain, anxiety, and depression. The Drug Enforcement Administration has classified controlled substances into a series of schedules, based on the danger of misuse and abuse of the chemical. Common controlled substance medication that might be prescribed to a patient includes:

- Opioid Painkillers: These prescription medications help treat pain. Common opioid drugs include codeine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, and hydromorphone. Opioids are classified under Schedule II by the DEA, as these drugs have a high potential for drug abuse and addiction.

- ADHD Medication: Drugs that help treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), such as Adderall and Ritalin are listed as Schedule II controlled substances by the DEA, as they carry a high potential for drug abuse and addiction.

- Steroids: Doctors may prescribe anabolic steroids to help treat conditions related to hormonal problems, such as delayed puberty or low testosterone production. Steroids are classified as Schedule III controlled substances, meaning they have the moderate-to-mild potential for drug abuse.

- Ketamine: Ketamine compounding drugs can be used to treat pain and depression. These drugs usually come in nasal spray or oral pill form. Legal ketamine prescription medications are classified as Schedule III substances by the DEA.

- Anxiety Medications: Prescription drugs that help treat the effects of anxiety, such as Xanax or Klonopin, are classified as Schedule IV controlled substances. This means that they carry a low risk for drug abuse and addiction. You can refill these drugs five times within six months of the date the prescription was given. This helps ensure that the prescription medication isn’t being overused or abused.

- Cough Medicine: Prescription-strength cough/ congestion medications such as Robitussin are classified as Schedule V controlled substances. These medications contain small amounts of narcotic codeine to help relieve discomfort. These prescription drugs pose little risk of addiction or drug abuse, due to their small amounts of opioid dosage.

It is illegal to obtain prescription drugs without a formulary (prescription listing) from a licensed health care professional. Certain prescription medications carry a high risk of drug abuse and addiction. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has resources on their website that detail the dangers of the opioid overdose pandemic. Check these out at CDC.gov.

NOTE: Doctors on Sesame do not prescribe any prescription medication that is listed as a controlled substance. Check out DEA.gov for a detailed list of medications that are listed as controlled substances.

Can my provider prescribe medication?

Yes, physicians on Sesame can prescribe a wide range of medications, which can be useful for infections, allergies, and other acute ailments. Please note that they will not prescribe certain drugs, such as narcotics or medications that have been designated controlled substances through telehealth.

Otherwise, many of the prescriptions available in an office setting or urgent care can be prescribed if your clinician deems it appropriate.

What is telehealth?

Telemedicine (also sometimes called "telehealth") is a form of virtual care that healthcare professionals offer patients looking for efficient, flexible care. With telemedicine, you can speak with a doctor about your symptoms and work to develop a treatment plan that's right for you - without the hassle of having to drive to different doctors' offices or navigate confusing insurance copays. If you've already seen a doctor and need a second opinion or more clarity on your condition, you can schedule a quick and easy telemedicine appointment to get your questions answered on your own time.

What are some benefits of telehealth and video visits?

Over the past few years, telehealth has transformed the healthcare landscape giving patients better access to quality doctors and providers. Still, some may be unfamiliar with telehealth and its benefits.

In the simplest terms, telehealth is a means of managing your health with the use of digital platforms, video, and virtual consults with doctors and providers. This includes:

Virtual appointments: the ability to see your doctor virtually with video consultations. This is perfect for both new patients and those with ongoing appointments that don’t require an in-person visit. Despite what you may have heard, many conditions can actually be treated over video, including toothaches, moles, warts, UTIs, other vaginal infections, and more.

Correspondence between doctors: By promoting faster, more efficient means of communication, telehealth allows for doctors to better coordinate and address patient needs.

Virtual health records: Apps, sometimes called personal health record systems (PHRs) allow for the viewing of health care records from a web-enabled device.

Remote Monitoring: Apps that upload medical information, such as lung function, blood pressure, and blood glucose readings, so that your doctor can monitor you virtually.

What is telehealth good for?

Telehealth can be less expensive than traditional face-to-face care. Telehealth can also be more convenient - avoiding the need to travel to a medical facility.

Telehealth can help people with semi-urgent same-day needs as well as chronic conditions. A study in the journal Telemedicine and e-Health finds that telehealth can be useful for patients with diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension, among other chronic conditions.

Telehealth is good for urgent care visits when you need a prescription, a refill, or medical care that can be provided over a video call.

Researchers have found that telehealth services were linked with more home care, fewer emergency department visits, and higher satisfaction.

For many patients, it is less expensive to use telehealth than face-to-face care. A traditional face-to-face visit with a provider can cost from $100 to $500 on average. Urgent care facility prices also widely vary. A telehealth visit on Sesame ranges from $24 to $70 dollars depending on the region and time of day.

How do I access my telehealth appointment?

After you book a video appointment, you will receive both an initial confirmation and a reminder via email and text.

There are three ways in which a video visit can be accessed:
- Select "Join virtual appointment" from the booking confirmation email.
- If you have an existing account or created one at purchase, log in at sesamecare.com, navigate to 'My appointments,' and select "Join virtual appointment."
- Click the link in the text message sent to you 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.

We suggest using Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari to connect to your visit.

Can I get quality treatment during my telehealth appointment?

Yes! Providers on Sesame meet the highest standards of quality. Many medical conditions can be immediately and conveniently diagnosed during a telehealth appointment.

How can I prepare for my telehealth appointment?

After booking your telehealth appointment on Sesame, you will receive a link to test the phone, tablet, or computer where you will speak with your provider. Sesame will send you a unique and secure webpage for you to access your telehealth appointment directly from your web browser. In the rare case that you run into any technical issues, our friendly support team is available to walk you through any challenges.
