Eastern Iowa Health Center offers the option of telehealth visits to our patients. Telehealth allows us to continue to provide you healthcare from the safety of your home.
Telehealth visits are easy, confidential and are available at no extra charge. Contact us at 319.730.7300 to see if a telehealth appointment is right for you.
Telehealth appointments use cameras to connect you with your healthcare provider. You will need a smartphone, tablet or a computer with a webcam and internet connection to have your appointment. You will have the opportunity to speak directly with your provider.
A telehealth appointment is just like a regular EIHC visit, just completed virtually with a camera on a safe and secure platform.
Telehealth is a new and exciting way to see your healthcare provider without having to leave your home. Below are tips to help prepare you to have a successful virtual appointment:
You will be billed for your telehealth appointment the same as if you were seeing your provider in person. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Medicaid, Medicare and many insurers are providing coverage for telehealth. To find out if your insurance will cover telehealth appointments, please call the number on the back of your insurance card.
