Telehealth Appointments Now Available
Ryan Health is now offering telehealth visits! Due to COVID-19, routine appointments or non-urgent healthcare are now available via telehealth appointments with Ryan Health providers. Same-day sick appointments are also available as telehealth appointments.
For more information on routine appointments vs. emergency care click here.
During the COVID-19 crisis, all copays and other patient payments, including for uninsured patients, will be waived for telehealth visits.
How does telehealth work?
Video conferencing with your physician works very similarly to in-person visits. Your Ryan Health provider will review your medical history and symptoms and will provide a treatment plan, including prescribing medication if needed.
Do I need complicated equipment to be able to have a telehealth visit?
All that is needed to have a successful telehealth appointment is:
- Internet connection
- A private or semi-private setting
- Desktop computer or Smartphone with a microphone and camera. If using a desktop, webcam, speakers, and microphone.
- Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera Software internet browsers
