How do I Participate in a TeleVisit?

For many people today, telemedicine is a convenient and effective way to see their healthcare provider. The first step is to call our office and we will help determine if the type of visit you request is suitable for a TeleVisit.

Before beginning your TeleVisit, make sure that you:

  1. Are an active patient with Family Practice of Cadillac.
  2. Have checked your insurance plan to see if you have telemedicine benefits. Most insurance companies have a phone number or online service to check your benefits. If you have your insurance through your employer your benefit administrator where you work could also advise you. A copay or deductible may apply.
  3. Have a computer with a web camera and microphone or a smart phone or tablet
  4. Have a dependable internet connection
  5. Have an active Patient Portal account, with username and password
  6. Set aside a secure, private location
