Staying healthy and safe is more important now than ever. But in the middle of a pandemic, shelter-in-place orders, and social distancing, it’s been challenging for many people to visit their primary care doctors for minor health problems.

What is telehealth?
Telehealth is the use of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to access health care services remotely and manage your health care. These may be technologies you use from home or that your doctor uses to improve or support health care services.
Does telehealth protect my privacy?
Yes. Insurance plans and healthcare providers are subject to HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) rules, which establish national guidelines to ensure your personal health data won’t be disclosed without your knowledge. When you communicate with your doctor via phone or video, your privacy and medical record information is held to the same standards as regular in-person visits.
