The Louisville-based Norton eCare medical providers can care for minor illnesses and injuries in children ages 2 and older through video visits and eVisits available 24/7 every day of the year.
You can access care for your child anytime from your smartphone or computer through your free Norton MyChart account as long as you are in Kentucky or Indiana during the visit. If you don’t have an account, it only takes a few minutes to set up a Norton MyChart account.
Norton eCare is a great option for getting care for the minor ailments of childhood — or adulthood. Access care anytime without having to travel to a provider’s office.
Virtual urgent care visits are billable through Medicaid, Medicare and most major insurance plans. You’ll get the great care you know and expect from a local, Norton Healthcare provider.
During your video visit, if the provider determines you need a prescription, they will send a prescription request to the pharmacy of your choice. A consultation is not a guarantee of a prescription.
Norton eCare no es para situaciones complejas, emergencias ni urgencias. If your condition is serious, call your health care provider or 911, or go to the nearest emergency department.
It’s a good idea to establish access to your child’s Norton MyChart account before you need it. This is called “proxy access.”
If you already have your own Norton MyChart account, here’s how to request proxy access for your child:
Norton eCare eVisits are a great option for children located in Kentucky who have been a patient at Norton Healthcare or Norton Children’s within the past three years. Norton eVisits are simple and do not require a video call. They are available for children ages 5 and older for ringworm, swimmer’s ear and head lice. A Norton eCare nurse practitioner will review your child’s symptoms and give you a phone call to discuss and prescribe treatment. Other treatments via eVisit are available for adults.
We accept most insurance plans for eVisits, and your copay may vary. The cost is $40 without insurance.
Norton eCare is not for complex, emergency or life-threatening situations. If your condition is serious, call your health provider or 911, or go to the nearest emergency department.
Video visits are available for patients ages 2 and up. Norton eCare eVisits, which do not require a video call, are available for:
Ages 5 and up: Lice, ringworm, swimmer’s ear
Ages 18 and up: Cough, diarrhea, red eye, sinus issues, urinary issues, vaginal discharge/irritation, acne, cold sore and poison ivy
*Drive-thru testing at Norton Healthcare Express Services is available if testing is needed to rule out conditions such as strep.
Norton eCare eVisits and video visits are scheduled with a Norton eCare provider, not with you or your child’s personal primary care or specialty provider. Learn more about Norton Telehealth appointments scheduled by your specialty or primary care provider.
