How Do Video Visits Work?
Video visits require a pre-scheduled appointment and allow patients to show their area(s) of concern and chat with a provider in real time on a mobile device or computer. By the end of the video session, patients can expect to receive treatment guidance and, if necessary, a prescription called into your pharmacy by your provider. In the event your provider decides that an in-office follow-up or biopsy is required, we will coordinate those arrangements on a case-by-case basis.
What Kind of Appointment Requests Can Be Made Over Video Visits?
Given the nature of remote healthcare, we cannot accommodate all dermatological skin conditions from afar however many general questions can be answered. Your provider will advise on whether they can treat your request or not.
Will My Video Visit Be Covered by Insurance?
Yes! All major insurance companies are currently covering telemedicine appointments. Should you have specific questions around eligibility, we recommend you contact your insurance carrier.
Are Video Visits HIPAA Compliant?
Yes! PocketPatient is a secure platform and all messaging is HIPAA compliant.
