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.

Yes! All major insurance companies are currently covering telemedicine appointments. Should you have specific questions around eligibility, we recommend you contact your insurance carrier.
