Prepare for Your Visit
Things to know and prepare prior to starting a visit:
With myPrivia Virtual Health™, you have access to a board-certified Emergency Medicine or Family Medicine physician any time of day, at your convenience. The visit is conducted by a Privia Medical Group physician on a secure video conference to treat a number of non-emergency illnesses or injuries. If you are an existing patient at a Privia Medical Group practice, your myPrivia Virtual Health™ physician will have access to your medical history and be able to coordinate follow-up care with your usual provider.
Things to note before starting a visit:
- Who are you? – We will need to confirm your identity with an acceptable photo ID.
- Where are you? – We need to confirm your current location so that we are able to provide services in compliance with all local, state, and federal regulations. Currently, myPrivia Virtual Health™ is only available to patients located in Georgia and Virginia.
- How will you pay? – We collect insurance and payment information to cover any copays or out-of-pocket costs at time of service. We accept all major credit or debit cards for payment.
