What health care services can I receive through telehealth?

You can receive many of the services normally provided in the office, but you need to check with your provider to learn exactly which services they offer via telehealth.

In the case of a medical emergency, however, you need to seek care at your local urgent care facility or hospital emergency department.

Will insurance pay for telehealth?

Some insurance companies cover telehealth, while others don’t. Additionally, some states require insurance companies to reimburse at the same rate as they cover for in-person appointments. In most states, Medicaid covers telehealth. Check with your insurance provider to find out if you’re covered.

As of March 6, 2020, Medicare is paying providers across the United States to provide telehealth services due to the COVID-19 crisis. However, this Medicare coverage may be a temporary benefit.

To learn more about telehealth and to get your connection started, call Chai Urgent Care and let them help guide the way.
