Questions & Answers

1. When is it appropriate to schedule a virtual visit?

Virtual visits are appropriate for a variety of care needs, including immediate care, routine follow-up visits, chronic disease management, medication management, reviewing test or lab results, and lifestyle coaching. Common illnesses including sinus problems, respiratory infections, allergies, cold and flu symptoms and many other non-emergency illnesses can be treated virtually. Contact your doctor to understand how virtual visits will work best for you.

2. What do I need for a virtual visit?

There are a couple technological requirements we suggest to ensure you have a seamless experience. Make sure you are using a device with a webcam, microphone and strong internet connection, such as a laptop, mobile phone or tablet.

3. What can I expect during my visit?

  1. You will receive an email before your appointment to complete the required check-in steps. You must check-in in advance of your visit.
  2. Click “Start My Check-In” from your check-in email reminder. You will be guided through a technology check, consent form collection, insurance confirmation, and payment of your copay.
  3. After completing the check-in process you are ready for your visit! You will receive another email with the link to join your virtual visit.

  5. Once your provider is available, you will hear an alert noise and the “Join Visit” button will become active for you to click on and connect with your provider
  6. Within moments, your provider will be visible to you on the screen and you may begin your virtual visit.

  8. You will be prompted to fill out a survey about your experience

4. How much does it cost?

Most commercial insurance plans cover virtual visits just as they would an in-office visit with your doctor, but speak with your insurer to confirm. In advance of the visit you will receive an email to check-in through a secure online platform. As with any office visit, we will collect the normal copay amount during the check-in process. After your virtual visit we will submit a claim to your insurance carrier for full payment. If the service is not covered by your insurance, we will work with you to set up an affordable cash payment plan.
