Virtual visits through telemedicine play a vital role in helping to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Lakeside Dermatology, therefore, has added a telemedicine option through AdvancedMD. Please note that not all conditions are able to be seen via telemedicine and that some insurances may only allow existing patients to use this option. Please verify with your insurance company. In cases where telemedicine is not allowable, and as conditions allow per CDC guidelines, we will make every attempt to schedule an in-office visit as soon as possible.
As part of its COVID-19 response, the Federal Government is allowing all Medicare patients (both new and existing) to utilize telemedicine visits.
Patients should check with their insurance provider to ensure that your plan covers virtual visits/telemedicine. If telemedicine visits are not covered, there is a flat fee of $65.
At the beginning of your visit, you will be asked to give credit card information on our secure link to pay for the visit. We are confident you will find value in the convenience of a virtual visit. If your insurance allows for telemedicine visits, you may be refunded as necessary.
