WHAT ARE VIRTUAL VISITS?
Virtual Visits – also referred to as “telehealth” – are eye health appointments where a Boling Vision Center Doctor will interact with you through live audio and/or video! These visits are documented in the medical record, just like a regular office visit. These Virtual Visits are ideal for those with non-urgent issues that need/want to see one of our Boling Vision Center Doctors during the COVID-19 self-isolation and quarantining periods. It is also a convenient option for anybody who is unable to see our Doctors in person.
With a Virtual Visit, you will be able to interact with your doctor to address your symptoms, develop a treatment plan, and discuss next steps … all from the convenience, comfort, and safety of your home!
WHAT TECHNOLOGY WILL I NEED FOR A VIRTUAL VISIT?
All you need is a smartphone, tablet, or computer! Please note: Our Boling Vision Center Team will need a valid cell phone number and email address on file, so we can send you a login link for your appointment. Then, you will connect with us through the text message link (or email) sent to your device from our secure Virtual Visit system.
WILL MY APPOINTMENT BE CONFIDENTIAL?
Your appointment will be completely private and confidential, exactly like it would be if your appointment were in person. Although you may have heard in the news that some HIPAA requirements were “relaxed” during the COVID-19 pandemic, please rest assured that Boling Vision Center will continue to protect your health information with the same commitment and diligence that we do in person!
DO VIRTUAL VISITS COST EXTRA?
Virtual Visits cost the same as traditional in-person appointments and will be filed to your insurance.
DOES MY INSURANCE COVER VIRTUAL VISITS?
Most insurance companies are covering Virtual Visits during these unprecedented times; however, it is always best practice to contact your insurance company directly to ensure they will cover your virtual visit.
