Telehealth

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is a medical visit through videoconferencing or sometimes just a phone call with the healthcare provider in a different location from the patient.  You may be familiar with videoconferencing with your family or friends through various apps.

Whether you can do a telehealth medical visit by telephone depends on the type of service you need and sometimes on the health insurance that you have.
