Who can get treatment?
Scanwell partners with an online doctor’s office to provide treatment services for women aged 18 to 60, who are not pregnant, and do not have diabetes.
Due to the online nature of the treatment service, the doctors and nurse practitioners who provide treatment have to be more cautious than if they were seeing you in-person. In some cases, it is in your best interest to get in-person treatment.

Does Scanwell take health insurance?
At this time, Scanwell and the treating clinicians we work with do not accept insurance, though we hope to in the future! For now, the only time you can use insurance is at the pharmacy when you pick up your prescription.
When should I use a Scanwell test kit?
Test with Scanwell at the first sign of symptoms. Common symptoms of UTI include:
■ Painful or burning feeling when peeing
■ Cloudy pee
■ Bloody pee
■ Strange-smelling pee
Left untreated, UTIs can lead to more serious infections or health issues. Using Scanwell, you can find out if you have a UTI in 2 minutes and if needed, get connected to same-day treatment.
How much does treatment cost?
After receiving your test results, you will have the option to get treatment from an online doctor's office. The cost to speak with a healthcare provider is $25 (you can think of this like a "copay" for the online appointment).
The cost of antibiotics is not included, and will depend on where you decide to fill and whether you are insured or not. We have found that the cost for antibiotics ranges from $5 to $25.
We also suggest checking out GoodRx before paying for your prescription. GoodRx offers discounts on prescriptions at most major pharmacies.
I don't want to spend my limited free time in a doctor's office for them to tell me what I already know...this is an incredible idea! Easy to use and such a time saver! LOVE IT!
Testing and getting treatment was easy and convenient. I loved being able to test and get medication on the same day, since my OBGYN is usually booked weeks out.
If you struggle with recurring UTI’s I highly recommend this process for you. It’s easy, quick and effective!!
