Frequently Asked Questions

Telehealth, or “virtual visit”, is a consultation with our specialized Pediatric Nurse Practitioner via video or phone conferencing. This option is convenient and allows your child to be seen without physically going into an office.

The cost is $65 if you are paying by credit card, health savings account (HSA), or flexible spending account (FSA) card. If you are paying by private/commercial health insurance that we accept, the final bill that you are responsible for may end up being more or less than $65 depending on the type of insurance plan and what your insurer is paying for a virtual office visit. 

For patients with active Colorado Medicaid (Health First Colorado), there is no cost.

Yes, we currently accept Medicaid (Health First Colorado), Colorado Access Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), Aetna, Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna. 

We provide care to children who are physically located in the state of Colorado during the time of the visit.

With Pediatric Telehealth of Colorado, you are able to see a specialized pediatric provider virtually and receive a medical diagnosis, medical advice, and treatment if appropriate. The same service you would expect from an in-office visit without the hassle of leaving home, traveling to and from the office, wait times, and the dreaded exposure or other illnesses while you are there.

We see children from newborn to 21 years old.

Yes, if medically recommended, we can send all prescriptions electronically to your preferred pharmacy. However, you will be financially responsible for those costs. If you have health insurance, the pharmacy can bill your insurance.

Yes, if medically recommended, we can send orders for appropriate labwork electronically to your preferred lab. However, you will be financially responsible for those costs. If you have health insurance, the lab can bill your insurance.

During a telehealth visit, no medical equipment is required, but there are affordable optional tools that can greatly enhance the experience. These tools include a thermometer, scale, flashlight, pulse oximeter, and otoscope camera. While not mandatory, they can provide valuable data to the healthcare provider and aid in remote assessments. Feel free to ask us for more information about these tools if you’re interested.

No, there is no requirement for a subscription or to sign up. Just schedule an appointment anytime you are in need of care, it’s that easy!

For a smooth video or phone visit: please bring a government-issued photo ID, insurance card if applicable, have a strong Wi-Fi connection, find a quiet, private place with good lighting, make a list of questions you have for us, join the call five minutes early.
