Oneida Health has launched telehealth services at all of their primary care offices. This includes their Quick Care service, and many of their specialty practices throughout Madison and Oneida County.
Telehealth gives you the opportunity to have a face-to-face visit with your medical provider without a traditional visit to the doctor's office.
Current patients of their primary care office or specialty practices can schedule a telehealth appointment by calling the office. Urgent care patients for non-life threatening conditions can call for an on-demand telehealth visit at one of Oneida Health's quick care locations.
Quick Care offers telehealth visits seven days a week during open office hours.
Oneida Health officials say some common conditions that can be treated using telehealth in a primary care setting or at Quick Care include: allergies, asthma, colds and flu, diarrhea, rashes, sore throats, toothaches, urinary tract infections, sinus infections and vomiting, to name a few. Telehealth services can vary by a health provider’s specialty. A gynecologist might use telehealth to provide birth control counseling. An endocrinologist may use it to discuss recent test results and follow-up. Each patient is triaged to determine if a telehealth visit is appropriate for the level of care they are seeking.
Telehealth is covered by medicare, medicaid, and most commercial insurers. Oneida Health has 32 medical providers throughout their network providing telehealth with more being added each week.
