Telemedicine services are now available at South Florida ENT Associates, allowing patients to get the care they need from the safety of their home. Patients need to have access to a smartphone, tablet or computer that has a camera and a microphone.
Our doctors are using doxy.me as the preferred method to facilitate the visits. When you call to schedule, our staff will provide you with an appointment and instructions on how to get connected for your visit.
Ahead of your visit, our team will email you a copy of the instructions and your meeting link if you are using doxy.me. You can also review and download information from the link below.
Will my insurance cover telemedicine services?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Medicare and commercial insurance companies have loosened restrictions related to telemedicine care. We recommend contacting your insurance provider with any specific questions regarding your plan coverage. You can visit your insurance providers website to find updated information or call the number on the back of your insurance card.
Does South Florida ENT Associates collect a copayment for telemedicine services?
For Medicare patients, copays and deductibles do apply to telemedicine services; however, most commercial payors but not all are waiving these fees. We recommend contacting your insurance provider with specific questions regarding coverage under your insurance plan.
Are telemedicine services limited to patients with COVID-19?
No, the statutory provision broadens telemedicine without regard of the diagnosis of the patient. This means telemedicine appointments are available to all patients in need of ENT care.
Are referrals or prior authorizations required for telemedicine services?
No, insurance companies are not currently requiring prior authorizations for telemedicine services.
Do we need written consent from the patient?
No, during your telemedicine visit you will be asked to provide verbal consent prior to the video conference call with your healthcare provider.
Could telemedicine services be rendered while a Physician or Advanced Practice Provider is at home?
Yes, at this time, the originating site has been waived.
