The Cost: In late March, the Oregon Health Authority ordered all insurance carriers to offer comprehensive telemedicine services to ensure you had continued access to your providers. Most insurance carriers have jumped on this, including the Oregon Health Plan and you should have the same coverage for telehealth visits as for in-person visits during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, there continues to be variation from plan to plan and it is always good to check with your carrier about coverage*. If you do not have telemedicine coverage, call our office to ask about cash pricing for this non-covered service.
How to Start Your Appointment: If you are scheduled for a telemedicine visit, please download the Zoom app on your computer or mobile device. You will join your visit from the link within the appointment confirmation email or from within the patient portal. In the patient portal, click “Appointments” and click the “Check-in” button. You can join the meeting up to 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment time. We suggest logging in at least 10 minutes prior to your first appointment to ensure you are on time for your visit.
