Solv secures $16.8M Series B round to improve urgent care appointment booking

In addition to the funding led by Greylock Partners, the startup also revealed a new feature that lets consumers pay their healthcare bills from their phone.

San Francisco, California-based Solv, a startup that helps consumers book same-day urgent care appointments, has raked in $16.8 million in a Series B round led by Greylock Partners. Benchmark and Aspect Ventures also participated.

Patients can download the Solv app, find the services needed and receive a list of list of nearby urgent care clinics. Through the app, consumers can also see the cost of each service. Solv says consumers can get a visit with a nearby physician in as little as 15 minutes.

In addition to the new funding, Greylock partner James Slavet has joined Solv’s board of directors.

Plus, the company revealed a new feature called Solv Pay. Patients can use it to learn more about their insurance coverage, as well as pay their out-of-pocket healthcare bills from their phone while they’re in the facility or later via text message notification.

“Consumers are telling us what they want and need,” Solv cofounder and CEO Heather Fernandez wrote in a Medium post. “This is part of why I’m so excited for Solv Pay’s launch; it’s a very real response to a need that consumers have — one of the most inconvenient parts of a healthcare experience is time and work required to understand and pay a medical bill.”
