TeleHealth Q&A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth uses modern technologies like smartphones, tablets, or computers to meet with your doctor (or another medical professional) over the internet. 

Telehealth was invented more than 40 years ago, but it’s exploded in popularity over the last few years, in part, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What are the benefits of telehealth?

Telehealth provides various advantages. For one, it makes it easy to meet with your primary care physician or a specialist. Instead of having to drive to the clinic and wait in traffic, you can log in from the comfort of home. 

If you’re immunocompromised or living with a chronic condition, telehealth keeps you from having to sit in a waiting room, risking potential exposure. If you’re a stay-at-home parent, telehealth makes it easy to receive medical care without having to find (or hire) a babysitter.

What happens during a telehealth appointment?

No two telehealth appointments are exactly alike. All Health Medical Group tailors your visit based on your age, medical history, and the reason for your appointment.

First, your provider asks about your symptoms, including when they started and their severity. Next, they conduct a remote exam. During this portion of the appointment, your provider might ask you to point the camera on your smartphone or tablet at a specific part of your body. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to bring them up during this time.

If your provider is unable to make a diagnosis based on a remote consultation, they might schedule a follow-up at the office to conduct laboratory tests or other screening procedures.

What services are offered through telehealth?

All Health Medical Group uses telehealth to offer various services, including:

  • Physical exams
  • Diagnosis and treatment of health issues (acute and chronic)
  • Prescription refills
  • Reviews of diagnostic tests (blood work, imaging procedures, etc.)
  • Vision and hearing tests

If necessary, you can even use a telehealth appointment to request a referral to a specialist. 

Is telehealth covered by insurance?

Yes. Most health insurance providers cover at least some telehealth services. If you have any questions about your policy, contact your insurance company before scheduling an appointment at All Health Medical Group.
