Vitale ENT can now offer you a Telemedicine option so you can visit with our providers from the comfort of your home!
What is Telemedicine?
A virtual visit with your doctor or nurse from anywhere! You both call in at your appointment time and can speak face to face with each other through the video screen.
What do I need for my visit?
You will need a computer with a web camera and speakers, or a smart phone. You will also need internet connection, and Zoom.
Will my insurance pay for this?
Most plans will cover a telehealth visit but it is best you check with your plan to be sure. Medicare is covering telemedicine visits during the COVID-19 outbreak. We can offer you a self pay rate for the visit if you do not have coverage through insurance.
How do I prepare for my appointment?
1 – Download Zoom. Test out your webcam. Open up the webcam via your control panel or a video app like skype to test it out.
2 – Make sure your volume is on if you will be using a computer.
3 – Test out your microphone. Open a recording program to test, or look for the microphone device in your control panel.
4 – If you are using a mobile device or cell phone, make sure it is charged.
5 – Check your internet or WIFI connection.
