Traveling? No Problem. Healthcare on the Go

May 11, 2022

If you’re traveling this summer, it’s important to have a plan if you get sick.

Telehealth, also called telemedicine, provides access to a board-certified doctor from anywhere via telephone or live, online video. These virtual visits are secure and confidential. You’ll just need access to the internet and a computer, tablet, or smart phone device. With telehealth, you have access to care no matter where you are located.

Medicare will cover a telehealth visit as long as you have had a prior in-person office visit with the health care provider or another provider in the same office. Before leaving on your trip, contact your doctor to find out what your telehealth options are. That way, you can travel with the ease of knowing your doctors are only a phone call away.
