Telemedicine options for you and your patients

We share your desire to get your patients the right health care at the right time. We also want to improve their access to primary care. That's why we're looking to telemedicine to help meet those goals.

Reimbursement for telemedicine services

Priority Health reimburses for telemedicine services you offer via phone or online. See codes in the Provider Manual for telephone visits, e-visits, and hosted visits.

Patient access to virtual visits 24/7

Our members have 24/7/365 access to doctor visits via secure video chat for low-acuity conditions through our vendor.

With virtual visits:

  • You'll have more time to see patients for preventive care and chronic condition management
  • Our members have options other than the emergency room, no matter when or where they are when they need care

Virtual visits from Priority Health support patient-centered medical homes

Virtual visits are not an alternative to primary care, but they do support patients and patient-centered medical homes by:

  • Improving access to primary care
  • Enhancing the patient experience as more patients ask for telemedicine options
  • Keeping PCPs informed with reporting every time a patient has a virtual visit with our vendor
