What is a urinary tract infection?

UTIs are infections caused by unwelcome bacteria colonizing the lower urinary tract (urethra and bladder). If left untreated, the bacteria can ascend to the kidneys, where an infection can become far more dangerous.

What are UTI symptoms?

• Pain or burning sensation with urination
• Frequent or urgent urination
• Tenderness above the pubic bone

To see your Pay-per-visit options, first choose your state.
Can I use my health insurance for Pay-per-visit?
Amazon One Medical doesn't accept health insurance for Pay-per-visit care. You can submit a claim to your insurance provider for reimbursement, but we can’t guarantee they’ll reimburse you for your one-time virtual visit.

If you normally use insurance to pay for your medications, you can do that with medications prescribed through all Amazon One Medical services. Amazon Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans. For other pharmacies, please talk with your pharmacy directly about insurance coverage. The cost of medication isn’t included in the cost of your visit.
What happens if my provider can't diagnose or treat my health issue through Amazon One Medical Pay-per-visit?
If your provider can’t diagnose or treat your health issue through Pay-per-visit, they may recommend that you see a primary care provider or a specialist for in-person care. If that happens, you won't be charged.
How does Amazon One Medical protect my health information?
Amazon One Medical protects customers’ protected health information (PHI) with stringent, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant privacy and security practices to keep information safe and secure.

We’re committed to building an infrastructure that fosters and promotes a culture of customer privacy and a strong commitment to safeguarding health information. We maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect customer information. This includes conducting rigorous security reviews and testing during product development, using encryption to protect data, and providing features like two-step verification to help customers protect their accounts.

Amazon does not sell customers’ personal information, including PHI.

About UTI treatment

Can men get UTI treatment through Pay-per-visit?
No. Bacterial infections of male anatomy tend to be more complex and may require lab testing to rule out certain sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

If your assigned sex at birth was male and you're having UTI symptoms like painful urination or blood in your urine, you'll need to see a primary care provider for an in-person evaluation.
Why do women get more UTIs than men?
In general, it's easier for "bad" bacteria like E. coli to access female anatomy because the urethra is so close to the anus.

How can women lower their risk of getting UTIs?
• Urinate before and after having sex
• Wipe yourself front to back after using the bathroom
• Drink lots of water
• Don't "hold it" for too long when you need to urinate
Some research has also shown the natural benefits of cranberry in keeping E. coli from bonding to the urinary tract.
What UTI medications can I get through Pay-per-visit?
Your Amazon One Medical provider may prescribe a short-term oral antibiotic if your symptoms indicate that you have an uncomplicated UTI (also known as acute simple cystitis).

Before prescribing medication, however, your provider will want to know if you've recently taken antibiotics for the same symptoms. Overprescribing this type of therapy can lead to bacterial resistance, when the drug doesn't work as well.

If you started taking antibiotics over 3 days ago and you're still having UTI symptoms, you'll need to see a primary care provider for an in-person evaluation.
Can I be treated for frequent or recurring UTIs through Pay-per-visit?
No. If you've experienced 4 or more UTIs within the past 12 months, or you've already been treated for 2 or more UTIs within the past 90 days, you'll need to see a primary care provider for a urinalysis and a urine culture.

Recurring UTIs can be a sign of antibiotic resistance or an underlying condition that may need evaluation and treatment.
