How is a telehealth visit different from an in-person visit?
Other than speaking to your provider via a video conference call, telehealth visits are very similar to in-person visits. Be sure to share everything with your provider as you would during an in-person visit.
Are telehealth visits available for children?
Yes, telehealth visits are available for both children and adults. During the child’s televisit, the provider will have a parent or guardian help with the child’s physical exam. This may include taking a temperature, showing the phone to the child’s throat, weighing the child or pushing on their belly, amongst other things.
