Online sittings are inexpensive, fast, safe and completely confidential. Those who are the associates/members of HMSA can consult with a doctor online for a minimum price of $10 only, whereas non-associates can use the similar online services only at $45 for each sitting.

The Online Care facility of HMSA has already started functioning now. It has surmounted the limitations of time, space, portability, or the deficiency of health insurance. Patients can log in anytime to get medical advice from doctors across different states.

Doctors can also get to know about the condition of their patients and can thus check their health improvement. In the coming months HMSA is planning to include more healthcare practitioners like specialists, therapists, psychologists, midwives, expert nurses etc. for increasing the scope of medical services to patients. All these medical practitioners will be able to exploit the latest technology of HMSA's Online Care system and get in touch with their patients.

HMSA did lots of research and experimentation with their Online Care system before releasing it officially. Many doctors and patients utilized various features of the Online Care facility and then verified its effectiveness.

These doctors are from fields like general and family care specialties, ophthalmology, cardiology, dental, physiotherapy, gynecology, pediatrics, orthopedics and a host of others. The number of specialties will increase with the passage of time, as HMSA will insert more to it.

Patients will also have similar facility. The facility is supple which permits local healthcare practitioners to carry out their sessions virtually, which give dynamic ease of working.

However, HMSA has strictly mentioned that their Online Care service is not at all meant to substitute patient-doctor interaction that happens in the doctor chambers in real life.
