Cumberland County-based drug store chain Rite Aid Corp. has expanded NowClinic Online Care to 58 more stores in four cities, according to a news release.

The service uses the Internet to facilitate a one-on-one consultation with a doctor who can discuss conditions and prescribe medications if appropriate, according to the release.

Rite Aid started the services in 2011 at nine Detroit pharmacies, the company said.

The new locations with NowClinic are in the Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh markets, Rite Aid said.

In addition to doctor consultations, a person can interact with a nurse who can give health information and help identify provider options for care, according to the release.

A consultation with a doctor is $45 for 10 minutes and a conversation with a nurse is free, according to Rite Aid.

Customers also can access the service online, Rite Aid said.
