Truly Accessible Care
The healthcare industry is advancing at a rapid pace. As we progress down this path, new and evolving ways for people to access care are emerging. At True Health New Mexico, we believe in ensuring our members have the ability to see a doctor no matter where they are.
What Is Virtual Care?
Virtual care is a term that includes all the ways healthcare providers can remotely interact with patients. These services may also be referred to as virtual visits, telehealth, or telemedicine appointments. Virtual care allows you to seek non-emergency services with an in-network provider who can treat and diagnosis medical conditions, mental disorders, and other conditions without a traditional in-person office visit, urgent care visit, or emergency care visit.
Telehealth Visits During the COVID-19 Pandemic
During the coronavirus pandemic, it’s important for you to continue receiving the healthcare services you need to be healthy. Your regular provider(s) may be offering telehealth visits as a safe option for receiving non-emergency care during this time.
Contact your provider(s) to learn if telehealth visits are an option for you. True Health New Mexico covers these visits at the same benefit level as in-person visits.
True Health New Mexico covers virtual (telehealth) visits with an in-network provider for all members*. We have partnered with Doctor On Demand to offer in-network telehealth visits. Doctor On Demand lets you see a doctor right away from your mobile device or computer. Within minutes you’ll be connected via live video with a board-certified physician. They can diagnose, treat, and even prescribe if necessary. You also can schedule a video visit at a later time that’s convenient for you.
