When you don’t have the time or the ability to visit your doctor’s office for medical care, you can turn to telehealth. The exceptional team at One Alkaline Life offers telehealth to new and existing patients, giving you the ability to videoconference with your doctor while staying in the comfort of your own home. Request a virtual appointment online, or if you’d like to learn more about how to register for telehealth, call the office. The friendly staff can provide the information you need to access virtual medical services.
Telehealth is an easy-to-use, HIPAA-compliant way to receive quality medical care virtually rather than in person.
In addition to receiving high-quality health care without going to the doctor’s office, there’s another benefit: You don’t have to be in the same location as your physician.
If you live a distance from your primary care physician or specialist, you can still get the medical care you need in a comfortable, convenient way 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.
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 One Alkaline Life and let them help guide you the way.
