Insurance coverage will vary. It is the responsibility of patients, parents, and legal guardians to check with their insurance carrier to verify coverage. Co-payments will apply as they do with any other medical appointment. If the cost of a telemedicine visit is not covered by insurance, parents may choose to self-pay or schedule a regular exam.
It is the responsibility of the patient, parent, or legal guardian to check with your insurance carrier in advance if a referral form is needed. Insurance requirements will vary and additional costs may be incurred for the exam and other tests or procedures if a referral form is not obtained.
Patients will receive confirmation by mail of their scheduled telemedicine appointment date and time, arrival time, and information on how to change or cancel the appointment.
A telemedicine visit is similar to a routine office exam. Once you arrive at your appointment location, please sign in at the front desk as you would for any other medical visit. A medical assistant will escort the patient, parent, or guardian to an exam room equipped with a high-definition monitor. A nurse or medical assistant will take the patient’s standard medical information, such as temperature, height, and weight. The assistant will establish two-way video-conferencing connectivity to begin the telemedicine exam and will offer assistance throughout the session. The physician, located at Children’s Telemedicine Center in Lawrenceville, will lead the exam. Parents, guardians, and patients may ask questions at any time. Physicians will have access to a patient’s medical records as they would during a routine, in-person exam.
For questions about your telemedicine appointment, please contact the medical provider directly. For more information about the Telemedicine Center at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, please call 412-692-8633 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
