Virtual Visits are a great way to obtain care for common issues without having to bring your child into the office. With our virtual visit option, you are able to get the same great care from your child’s pediatrician, just like you would if you were being seen in person. They are done over encrypted, HIPAA compliant video chats through the same company that protects your child’s Electronic Medical Record.
Virtual visits are good for complaints that would not require an extensive or hands-on physical exam. Concerns with rashes, vomiting & diarrhea, pink eye, allergies, behavioral health, medication follow-up, and visits requiring extensive advice or consultation (including COVID-19 questions) are all appropriate for virtual visits. In-office visits are still necessary for Well Checks, sore throats, flu symptoms, asthma or other breathing issues, concerns for ear infections, and any other symptoms that would require a lab test or physical exam.
Virtual visits are covered by most health insurances and all Medicaid plans. We will submit a claim for them as we do all regular office visits. Co-pays may apply but will depend on your individual insurance plan. Please check with your health insurance if you have any questions about coverage. Any co-pays for the visit will be collected the next time you come into the office.
