Fort HealthCare wants to ensure that patients have access to the care that they need in this time of stay-at-home regulation. While Fort HealthCare has remained open for essential in person clinic visits, we want to give patients various forms of access to connect with providers from the safety and convenience of their own home and video visits is another way to do that. To schedule a video visit, call your local Fort HealthCare provider’s office and request that a video visit be scheduled instead of coming into the clinic. A time is scheduled, just like an appointment, and an email will be sent with instructions on your visit. Visits can be held on your phone, tablet or computer with a webcam and microphone and an internet connection. Video visits are billed to insurance just like an office visit. With a video visit you select the provider you want to have your appointment with at the time that works for you. Video visits are great options for a variety of conditions and some types of follow-up visits. Many patients are successfully connecting with providers via video visit for:
• Routine office visits for sudden, minor health conditions
• Follow up visits for chronic conditions
• Medicare annual wellness visits
• Health screenings
• Therapy and Sport Rehabilitation visits
• Psychiatry and mental health appointments
• Surgery follow-up visits
Depending on your individual care plan or illness, the provider may tell you that an in-person visit is recommended to give you the best care possible.
