Insurance for telemedicine

We will bill your telemedicine visit to your private insurance and it should be covered. There are some insurances that will not pay for the $30 to $80 charge and those are listed below. 

New Patients will be billed prior to scheduling a followup televisit. Follow up patients will be billed after visits 

Insurances that do not pay for teleivsits are listed below, so patients can opt for cash payments
  • Companies using Aetna to administer self-insured plans: most aetna plans are NOT covered and will not allow the televisit to be charged cash or otherwise.
  • Humana patients: a cash rate applies to some televisits depending on your exact plan. If you want to know if your specific plan is covered, then please call your insurance company. 
  • Medicare and Medicaid patients that do not live in a federally designated "rural" zip code cannot do televisits at all, not even for a cash price. Due to the byzantine rules we cannot offer televisits to any medicare patient. Please contact your US congressman or your US senator to request televisits be allowed for all medicare patients. 
  • Cash rates are generally $30 to $80 with the convenience of avoiding a physical trip to discuss your results/concerns.
