March 19, 2020

SSM Health is offering a free Virtual Visit for anyone who is concerned they may be experiencing symptoms of, or may have been exposed to, Coronavirus (COVID-19). Anyone who lives in Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma or Wisconsin, regardless of insurance or if they are a current SSM Health patient, is eligible for the free evaluation, which can be accessed from any page of

The evaluation begins with a series of questions regarding a patient’s symptoms and exposure. Following the visit, the patient will be connected with an SSM Health Medical Group provider to review a care plan if needed. If testing is recommended, patients will be sent to the nearest SSM Health testing facility.

The move demonstrates SSM Health’s commitment to ensuring everyone has access to high-quality affordable health care. These proactive steps ensure the continued safety of their patients, visitors, physicians, staff and communities.

SSM Health is working with regional health authorities as well as the Centers for Disease Control to actively monitor the situation and ensure they have the most up-to-date information.
