The facts about telehealth visits


  1. What are telehealth visits?

Telehealth visits are video or phone visits with a doctor or clinician for nonemergency medical needs.  They are also called telemedicine or telehealth. We now offer telehealth visits as another convenient way for you to connect with us about your health.

  1. What type of illnesses and conditions can be treated in a telehealth visit?

Some of the most common medical conditions treated by telehealth visits are:

Chronic condition management, Follow up visits, Medication refills, Review of lab and test results, Respiratory problems, fever, cough, sore throat, sleep disorder consultations

  1. How can my doctor treat me if I am not in the room with him/her?

Your doctor uses a number of techniques to determine a diagnosis or manage your health. Interviewing is one of the most important techniques and this can be done through a telephonic or video telehealth visit. Your doctor can also observe you as another technique, and using video during a telehealth visit has the additional benefit of allowing them to see you.

  1. What happens if the provider can’t treat my condition?

Your doctor or clinician will identify if they can assist with your condition at the beginning of the call.  If they’re unable to provide services, you may be directed to come into the office or seek care at an alternative location, such as an urgent care center or the emergency room.

  1. Can providers prescribe medication as part of a visit?

Yes, in most situations. * Prescriptions are electronically sent to the pharmacy of choice as soon as the consultation is over.

  1. Will my health plan pay for a telehealth visit like they would if I came into the office?

Many health plans are covering telehealth visits, but please check with your plan for specifics on your benefit coverage and what medical necessity rules apply.
