Introducing Telephone Virtual Visits
Posted on: 03/19/2020
What is a tVisit?
A telephone visit (tVisit) is a consultation with your primary care provider done by phone. It is meant to address common health issues. The member practices of Medical Health Associates are offering tVisit as an alternative to a traditional office visit for select, non-urgent medical issues.
Your time is important. If you can't get to the doctor's office for any number of reasons, a tVisit may make sense. It offers convenience, and it could expedite receiving treatment for certain illnesses, including but not limited to;
- Back Pain
- Ear Pain
- Mental health
- Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)
- Respiratory Distress
- Sore Throat
- URI (Upper Respiratory Infections)
The cost for an tVisit is from $25 to $45 depending on the length of the phone connection.
It may or may not be reimbursable through your insurance.
