If you have an issue that is covered by insurance, and telehealth is covered by your insurance plan, you will be billed through your insurance carrier. Co-pays and deductibles will continue to be the patient’s responsibility. If telehealth is not covered by your insurances, and you have a pressing issue that you wish to have addressed, a flat fee of $75 dollars will be charged for a 15 minute new patient telehealth visit.
