Telehealth

Care from the comfort of home

Sometimes called “telemedicine,” “remote care,” or “virtual care,”
telehealth is an appointment with a doctor by phone or video.

Telehealth

How does telehealth work?

Now, more than ever, many providers—including doctors and mental health professionals—are available to connect through a telehealth appointment. The doctor you normally see in person may be available to consult by phone or video. To learn more, contact them directly or check their website.

Cost: In most cases, you’ll pay the same as you would for an office visit. If you have coronavirus symptoms and are covered by a PacificSource plan, rest assured you’ll pay $0 for COVID-19-related testing, diagnosis, and treatment.
