Virtual care (telehealth) combines in-office quality with in-home privacy and convenience.

What is virtual care?

Virtual care (also known as telehealth, or telemedicine) is the use of technology to connect with a provider by video or phone using a computer or mobile device.**

How does virtual care work?

  • Schedule online appointments with licensed counselors or psychiatrists for behavioral or mental health conditions.
  • Schedule an appointment for a virtual wellness screening
  • Have a prescription sent directly to your pharmacy, if appropriate.
