As you may have noticed, Instant Urgent Care is implementing telemedicine services to ensure that patients can continue to get care while at home. Patients just simply have to book an appointment online for telemedicine with a smartphone or computer!
Telemedicine allows our team to evaluate a variety of acute urgent care needs including seasonal illness symptoms, skin irritations and rashes, sinus pain, congestion, headaches, and stomach/gastrointestinal issuses. Outside of a medical emergency or injury triage, telemedicine is a great alternative for traditional medical care.
Patients are not fully used to getting medical care through all virtual services, and we understand that can lead to confusion. The good news for a majority of patients is that telemedicine access doesn’t require much more than your current internet. Booking telemedicine is useful and efficient: saving time while providing you with the care you need.
Now, more than ever, patients need affordable and safe medical services while managing the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here is how you can book a telemedicine appointment!
Just need an internet connection and an internet-connected device.
All any patient needs to book telemedicine is an internet-connected device and connection to get telemedicine. Just book your appointment and make sure that the audio and video is available on your device.
To book, visit our website on any device and click the “Virtual Visit” or “Book Telemedicine” buttons to get your appointment today!
Patients don’t have to download any additional software as well, since our telemedicine portal is hosted all through an internet connection. Simply book online on our online portal in order to access telemedicine through your phone or computer.
Insurance coverage helps make telemedicine more affordable
Most health insurance packages in the state of Califorina cover telemedicine services as more insurance carriers and healthcare providers offer telemedicine. Costs vary according to plans; some offer telehealth coverage with no copays and others require out-of-pocket costs in the form of copays, coinsurance or deductibles. Please check with your carrier for your plan specific coverage.
A self-pay option is available for patients without health insurance or for those who choose not to process their visits through insurance.
Telemedicine visits are easy and a great option for urgent care services at Instant Urgent Care. Use the booking buttons on our website to get started!
