Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to do to prepare for my virtual appointment?
Virtual appointments require internet access. Good lighting is recommended so we can see your skin clearly. Choose a location that allows you privacy as well.
Is this service covered by insurance?
Due to the Covid-19 public health emergency, the federal government, state Medicaid programs, and private insurers have expanded coverage for virtual health care services. Currently, telehealth visits are covered by Medicare and most insurances. We encourage all patients to contact their insurance carrier to verify telehealth benefits.
What if I need a skin biopsy or in-office procedure?
Some skin issues involve the need for in-person evaluation. If your provider determines you need a biopsy or other procedure/treatment, we can schedule you for an in-person visit.
Are my personal health information and photos kept confidential?
Yes! Our online dermatology care platform is secure and HIPAA compliant.
