Telemedicine visits can be scheduled for patients when it is not necessary for the doctor to physically examine the child. Some examples where this would be appropriate are but not limited to; consultations, follow-up appointments, x-ray, lab and consultation report reviews, behavior and sleep issues, and visits to evaluate a condition that may require an in-person office visit at a later time.
Telemedicine visits are treated the same as office visits and they are billed to your insurance company or to you if you are self-pay. Co-payments, co-insurance, and/or deductibles will be charged when applicable by your insurance. You may check with your insurance company for more detailed insurance coverage.
