Appointments are private and secure from the comfort and convenience of your home, making it easy and safe for you to access your Prairie provider without coming into the office.
Social distancing is an important part of reducing the spread of COVID-19. This means it is safer for the community if we only bring patients into the office when necessary. There are some cases where we need to see a patient in person, and we want to give these patients a less infectious environment by limiting the number of people we see in our clinic. Virtual office visits help us all support social distancing for your own health and safety as well as that of the greater community.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much does a virtual office visit cost?
A virtual office visit will require the same co-pay as if you are seeing your provider in the office. We recommend you contact your insurance company for details on how much they cover for virtual office visits.
Q: Can my provider prescribe medication through my telehealth visit?
Yes. During your visit, your provider will be able to access your medical records, prescribe medication and order any services as they would in a typical office visit.
Q: What do I need for a virtual office visit?
You will need a smart device (such as a smartphone, tablet or computer with camera and audio capabilities). Patients who do not have a smart device with a video option can talk to their doctor’s office about how they can conduct other types of visits.
Please also have your list of medications and any other information you would share with your doctor in a typical office visit.
Q: How long will my appointment be?
The length of your visit will vary depending on your health care provider and the reason for your appointment.
