Frequently Asked Questions - Subscription Service

When can we call to consult with the pediatrician?

We are available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. We would do the consults mostly during the day from 9 am to 11 pm, but will most definitely answer all urgent medical questions all 24 hours.

Will there be any added or hidden costs?

No copays and no deductibles. Just one flat fee with unlimited consults and NO LIMITS. We bill month to month and you can cancel anytime.

What is the fee?

The single monthly fee covers all children in the household. It will be $19.99 for the first 2 months, $39.99 for 2 more months and $49.99 from then onward. ($49.99 will be your standard fee from then onward).

If there are more than 5 children, it will be $ 9.99 more for each child. You can also pay via HSA or FSA cards, too. You do not need medical insurance for this service.

Can my insurance pay for this?

NO but GraceMDConnect services are very affordable and cheaper than insurance. We do accept FSA/HSA cards as payment methods.

How do you treat ear infections?

We will ship an otoscope free of charge (A device you can connect to your smart phone so that the doctor can see your child’s ear drum in case of ear pain) so that we can treat ear infections also.

Do you send prescriptions and school notes?

Some questions regarding telemedicine as a means to see a doctor:

What is the Grace MD Connect/Medici app?

The Medici app lets you connect with a pediatrician through easy-to-use, high-resolution, secure 2-way video conferencing for quick, convenient treatment.

Why do parents/patients use Grace MD Connect/Medici?

Parents use medici to connect with a board certified pediatrician for quick treatment and requests, such as an answer to a health question, urgent treatment for minor medical issues, or a follow-up appointment for your child.

How can a doctor treat my child without a physical exam?

Your doctor actually doesn’t need to do a physical exam to diagnose and treat many minor conditions. That’s because knowing your child’s medical history is considered “90% of the evaluation” when combined with the doctor-patient/parent interaction. How your child is feeling can be just as important to your doctor as the results of a physical exam. Plus, being able to see your child and view any picture uploads via Medici gives your doctor the additional visual information needed to make a diagnosis.

How does Grace MD Connect/Medici work?

It’s easy! If you’re a new user, you will download the Medici app and your doctor from Grace MDConnect will send you an invite. It’s that simple. It is HIPAA secure and you can do video visits, text and upload pictures in the app. It is very easy to use even if you are not tech savvy.

Can my doctor prescribe medication

Yes. If your doctor decides your child needs treatment, he or she will send your prescription electronically to your pharmacy so it’s ready to pick-up when you arrive.

Can Grace MD Connect/Medici be used for medical emergencies?

Grace MDConnect/eVisit shouldn’t be used for emergency care. If you have a medical emergency, please dial 911 immediately.

Is my medical information secure?

Yes. The Medici app is 100% HIPAA-compliant, so any personal health information you provide regarding your child is completely safe and secure.

I’m not very tech-savvy. Is Medici still for me?

Medici is very friendly, and we are always happy to assist you.
