We Now Offer Telemedicine!

Now more than ever, you need to stay connected. And knowing that you have the ability to connect with your Women’s Care Florida provider gives you the extra peace of mind you need.

Doing our part to keep you safe

In our efforts to keep you and our caregivers safe, we are pleased to announce that we’re now offering telehealth services!

From the comfort of your own home

You can have the expertise of the professional advice of your trusted Women’s Care Florida provider without ever leaving your home.

Is telehealth right for you?

When you call your provider’s office for an appointment, tell us why you’d like to be seen.

  • For questions, discussions on hormone replacement therapy, family planning, contraception, genetic counseling, bladder issues and many other issues, we may be able to schedule a telehealth visit.
  • If you think you may have COVID-19 symptoms, we are happy to assess you by phone and can supply prescriptions as appropriate for testing, as well.
  • If your problem is urgent or emergent, requires a blood draw or an ultrasound, or must have a physical exam to figure out how best to help you, we will offer you an in-person exam. All of our Women’s Care Florida practices remain open to serve you.

The process is simple

Simply let our staff know that you are interested in a telehealth visit. We will let you know which options are available at your provider’s office. We will then schedule an appointment. 

What your visit will look like

Facetime

Call your provider’s office to schedule an appointment. Generally, one of our medical assistants will initiate contact to collect important medical history information to prepare our doctor, nurse midwife or nurse practitioner for your visit. Expect a call within the next 30 minutes from your provider, who will ask you the same questions and offer the same advice you would get in the office.

If, during the visit, the provider feels you need a follow-up exam in person, you will be scheduled accordingly.

Healow – Patient Portal and Mobile App

Call your provider’s office to schedule an appointment. At your scheduled appointment time, you will be able to join our virtual waiting room through a link sent to you via email (recommended method), or via the Healow patient portal or mobile app.

If, during the visit, the provider feels you need a follow-up exam in person, you will be scheduled accordingly.

 

If you are pregnant

We continue to provide obstetrical care in the office setting, and we are looking to arrange for telehealth options that may limit the number of times you have to come into the office during the course of your pregnancy. Look for more information from us about this option soon.  

Blood draws, ultrasounds and nonstress tests require an in-office visit.

Women’s Care Florida remains open to new ob patients.

Insurance

As a result of recent changes announced by the government, Medicare, Aetna, Cigna, Florida Blue, Humana and United now cover telehealth services according to the applicable benefits, and may be subject to a copay or deductible just as a regular office visit would be. 

Stay safe, stay well

Your Women’s Care Florida providers care about you and your well-being. While we may not be able to see you in person, know that we are doing our part to keep you safe.
