Tele-Health appointment is similar to a clinic appointment. This will help healthcare provider to take history, exam, discuss assessment and plan over HIPPA secure medium.
Similar to a clinic appointment at one of our offices you need to make appointment, fill forms, submit payment/insurance information prior to appointment. Call clinic or download form and fax them to us. Once our staff verifies payment/insurance information, they’ll setup appointment and provide you with instructions to come to Tele-Health appointment. Your insurance carrier will cover Telehealth appointment as long as site of origination is one of medical offices or hospitals. If we are to bill you directly, not an insurance, a Telehealth appointment can be conducted from patient’s home.
Doctor may order tests, medications, therapy during the Tele-Health appointment. Most of these orders are electronically transmitted to appropriate pharmacy or provider so you can get them done prior to next appointment. If you want to change Tele-Health appointment to clinic appointment just call our office and they’ll be happy to change it.
Any questions call our office to discuss.
