Telemedicine with the Doctors of Comprehensive Foot Centers
Is It Right for Me?
As we said, not all types of foot and ankle problems can be solved through virtual means. Many times, you may still need to come in for an X-ray, or for us to administer a specific treatment.
However, you never know until you ask!
Again, we are doing everything we can to make sure you get the care you need as safely as possible. So if you have a current foot or ankle issue, reach out to us and explain what you’re going through. If we think telemedicine would be a good option for your situation, we’ll talk about it together and help you make a wise decision regarding your care.
If you do need to come in, please rest assured that we are carefully monitoring the evolving situation and taking all the necessary steps to keep our office clean, safe, and sterile. That includes disinfecting all areas regularly, limiting the number of patients we see at a time, wearing protective masks and gloves at all times, and more.
Is It Covered by Insurance?
Telemedicine services have been increasingly covered by insurance companies, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. From our perspective, we will bill your insurance provider for the appointment as we normally would, and do not charge any additional fees.
That said, the extent of coverage may vary according to your specific provider and plan. If you’re unsure, your best bet is to call your provider and ask.
