Google Helping Sick Searchers Chat With Doctors

Oct 14, 2014 google, insurance, medical, 0 Comments


A new service is being tested by Google that allows users searching the web for symptoms of an illness the ability to chat with a doctor online, Engadget reported this weekend.

During the trial phase, Google plans to cover the costs of any chat, but customers/patients will likely have to pay for appointments once the service is ready to roll out completely.

This could be a huge workaround for people without insurance, or people that might feel not have transportation but don’t need an ambulance, or just people that prefer not to go into a doctor’s office and wait for an hour.
