What is Virtual Care?
Virtual care, also known as telehealth, is a great way to get the health care you need by using your phone, tablet, or computer. Telehealth can be used for a variety of health needs, and a doctor will decide whether it is right for your situation.
Using telehealth can save you time and money traveling to the doctor's office, and sometimes can get you in to see a doctor faster than in person. Get quality care from the comfort, convenience, and safety of your own home.
Which best describes you?
I have a doctor
If you have a doctor, please contact them first. Most doctors offer virtual or telehealth ‘visits’ on the phone or by internet.
I have insurance, I do not have a doctor
Your health insurance company can help connect you to care without leaving your home — this visit is often called telehealth or virtual care.
- Tip: Search your app store to see if your insurance company has a mobile app.

If you don't have a provider or your provider doesn't offer telehealth, you may be able to access care for COVID-19 directly.
