What is Telemedicine?
Lakeside Dermatology Telemedicine appointments feature a live video-chat via phone, tablet, or computer with one of our providers.
Will insurance pay for a Telemedicine visit?
Virtual visits play a critical role in helping prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Most insurance companies will, therefore, pay for Telemedicine appointments. In addition, as part of its COVID-19 response, Medicare is allowing both new and existing patients to utilize Telemedicine visits. Please check with your insurance company prior to your appointment to confirm your individual coverage. If Telemedicine is not covered by your insurance provider, there is a flat fee of $75.
Are all conditions appropriate for a Telemedicine visit?
Not all conditions are able to be seen via Telemedicine. In these cases, or if your insurance company will not cover Telemedicine appointments, we are happy to schedule an in-office appointment.
