Imlay City Family Practice is now offering E-Visits to our patients. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about this types of visits...
How much does an e-visit cost?
Telehealth visits will be billed to your health insurance. If you normally have a copay then you would still have a copay for E-visits.
Does insurance cover these electronic visits?
Due to COVID-19, Medicare and commercial insurances are covering telehealth services such as e-visits and alternative visits (home visits). For more information visit: https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/0,9753,7-406-98158-521549--,00.html
Do I call the office phone number to schedule an electronic visit?
Yes. Call 810-724-0591 to ask to schedule an e-visit.
Do I need to fill out any paperwork or forms before the visit?
You can find the Telemedicine Consent on our website under Resources->Patient Forms. You can also click here to download the form. We will review this form with you prior to starting the visit so we can get verbal consent.
Do I need to schedule an electronic visit for a prescription refill?
Are you still offering regular, in-person visits?
To limit the spread and exposure of COVID-19, we are only offering e-visits at this time. If you do not have a smartphone, computer or tablet, that can be used during your appointment, we can schedule a phone visit instead.
If you have any other questions, please contact our office at 810-724-0591.
