What is telehealth?

Telehealth is when you use digital and communications technology – like computers, smartphones, or telephones – to access health care services for your children from home.

During a telehealth appointment, you will be able to talk to your child’s doctor on the phone about any health concerns you may be having. Based on their symptoms and their medical history, the pediatrician prescribe mediations, recommend at-home treatments, or ask you to come to the clinic for further examination.

Answers to common questions about telehealth

Is telehealth covered by my child's insurance?

Telehealth appointments are covered by most insurance plans, including Medicaid and CHIP. If your child doesn’t have insurance, please ask about our Financial Assistance Program.

Is telehealth secure? Is privacy protected?

Yes. Telehealth visits are secure and private. A responsible adult should be present with your child during the telehealth visit. Both the patient and provider should be in a private area, so that others cannot overhear or see anything they shouldn’t.
