What precautions should I take when using telemedicine services?
Ask the doctors
Q. I'm considering using a telemedicine provider. Is there anything I should be aware of before I make my appointment?
A. The good news is that insurance coverage has expanded recently, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has allowed many people to access telehealth services who weren't able to in the past. Telehealth services can take many forms, from live video consultations to remote patient monitoring. But you should use some caution when taking advantage of these services to ensure that your privacy is protected.
