What is a virtual check up?
A virtual check-up or appointment is conducted through an online medium, using telehealth communications technology, so that patients can receive medical care at home! As such, virtual check-ups are an excellent option for individuals who live in remote areas, cannot leave their house, do not have ready access to transportation, or have a busy schedule.
In addition to a routine check-up, virtual appointments can also be made for diagnosing and treating minor injuries or illnesses, at-home treatment methods, prescription medications or refills, as well as an opportunity for you to ask your doctor questions about treatment, medication changes, or any symptoms you are experiencing. The following are a list of health concerns that can be addressed through a virtual doctor’s appointment:
- Bladder or urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- Cold and flu symptoms
- Diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting
- Migraines or other headaches
- Pink eye (conjunctivitis)
- Rashes and skin infections
- Sinus infections
- Sore throat
We are happy to provide virtual check-ups and appointments for any of the above health concerns at Catalyst Medical Group in Edinburg, Texas! That said, there may be some instances where an in-person appointment is required. Virtual doctor’s appointments are also referred to as telemedicine, telehealth, and online doctor’s visits.
How does a virtual doctor’s visit work?
A virtual doctor’s visit works through a third-party video-platforming app that hosts both the patient and the doctor conducting the appointment. The app should be accessible through your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. You can request a virtual doctor’s visit through our website, upon which you will be directed to a video-platform site or app where you can provide the details for your appointment, including the time and reason for the appointment.
Such appointments are conducted on a secure and encrypted network that meets the required standards set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to ensure patient-provider confidentiality is safe and upheld throughout the appointment.
How much do virtual visits cost?
The cost of a virtual doctor’s visit varies from clinic to clinic. However, it is typically less expensive than an in-person visit. If you have insurance coverage for telemedicine, that will also reduce the cost of a virtual doctor’s visit. We happily accept most major insurance plans at Catalyst Medical Group!
