(Associated Press) – Amazon is taking another step toward becoming a regular health care source for customers with the launch of a service centered on virtual care.

The e-commerce giant says its Prime customers can now get quick access to a health care provider through a program that costs $9 a month or $99 annually.

Patients will be able to connect virtually around the clock with care providers through its Prime One Medical membership program.

The service includes video chats and an option to make in-person visits if they are available in the customer’s market.
