However, I will update you when I learn more. For know, here’s what we know: Yesterday, the company announced the latest addition to Prime: access to primary care services through its One Medical platform for $9 per month. (USD) One Medical provides access to 24/7 virtual care, expedited care for common concerns such as cold symptoms and skin issues, and same- or next-day remote or in-person appointments at One Medical primary care offices. Notably, virtual care users will not have any additional costs, as the entire service is included in the membership fee. Though One Medical is normally available to the wider public for $199, Prime Members can now get it for $99 annually, with the option to include additional members for $66 each.
