The COVID-19 pandemic has altered service delivery in a big way. Even services such as healthcare that rely heavily on in-person meetings have had to bow to the “new normal,” with practices being forced to embrace telemedicine.
If you are here because you have an upcoming virtual appointment with a healthcare provider, you are in the right place. We have provided six great ways to prepare for a telemedicine visit and make the encounter with your doctor more seamless and productive:
1. Get in touch with your insurer
