Telemedicine provides your medical care without needing to leave the comfort and safety of your home. There are many possible reasons why you can’t travel to the office or need to stay at home, from feeling ill to car troubles or needing to stay with children. No matter what reason you may have, you can choose telemedicine.
The best way to access telemedicine is with your smartphone, iPad, tablet, or computer because their video capabilities allow you to have a face-to-face consultation. Having a visual connection also gives you the ability to show or demonstrate physical problems if necessary.
Patients with internet access can consult with a Pain Solutions provider using their Virtual Visit platform. However, if you don’t have a video-enabled device or you don’t have internet access, your Pain Solutions provider offers the option of connecting through your regular telephone.
The Pain Solutions team places a priority on providing the medical care you need. They work with the technology you have available.
The laws in New Hampshire currently allow telemedicine to provide nearly every type of medical service except for home rehabilitation. The team at Pail Solutions use telemedicine for:
Established patients can schedule their follow-up evaluations using telemedicine.
While some new patients can have their first appointment using telemedicine, pain medicine patients often have complex needs that are best served when their first evaluation is a comprehensive examination in the office.
Whether you need a new prescription or a refill, your Pain Solutions provider can take care of all your medication needs through telemedicine. After your virtual appointment, they send your prescription directly to your preferred pharmacy.
When you use an online connection, Pain Solutions secures the connection using HIPAA-compliant video conferencing software. HIPAA is a federal law that protects the privacy of your health information.
New Hampshire law requires private insurance companies to cover telemedicine services to the same extent that they pay for in-person care. Of course, the amount of coverage varies depending on your plan, so check with your provider. Medicare also covers telemedicine and New Hampshire Medicaid pays for some services.
But you need to be aware of one important criteria: Insurance only pays for telemedicine when you have video appointments.
