National drugstore CVS is planning to roll out its telemedicine service nationwide by the end of this year. Using the service, users will be able to diagnose their less-complex health maladies and other health concerns via the brand’s mobile app. 

The service currently is offered in Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The app will serve as a 24-hour healthcare assistance hotline in partnership with Teladoc, a virtual care company. The initiative will enable consumers to diagnose conditions such as a cold or flu, skin issues and other more general wellness concerns. The video service will cost $59.

Nationwide, CVS Minute Clinic currently serves as the drugstore chain’s customer health service provider. However, the retailer is in the midst of acquiring health insurance company Aetna, which will be integrated into the app as well.
