Hometown Pediatrics now offers Telehealth visits
We are here when you need us, in-person and virtually. Meeting you where you are, to provide the care you need.
What is a virtual visit? This is a consult/health check or sick visit with a Hometown Pediatrics provider via video conferencing. Virtual care creates more convenience for you, and your child gets the quality care that you know and trust! Currently we only offer
with our pediatrician and her nurse practitioner.
Currently, these are only scheduled visits. Call our office or the physician on call (after hours) to schedule a virtual visit.
We provide visits for acute illnesses or chronic conditions for which we feel it is safe to provide care using virtual technology.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we may suggest connecting with you virtually so we can determine the most appropriate place for you to receive in person care.
At this time, well visits cannot be offered via telehealth.
Ask your insurance if your plan covers virtual visits. If the visit is not a covered benefit by your insurance, then the visit charge will be passed onto you for payment. Maximum out of pocket charges for a virtual visits is $50.
With the COVID-19 Pandemic
insurance companies are beginning to cover these visits so that you have a safe way to receive care.
