Insurance Notice:

As the world of TeleMedicine evolves we want to be sure that you are aware that some insurance plans do may not cover TeleMedicine services, but in this environment, most are going to eventually cover it as a service to their insured lives.

Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Nebraska , Aetna and Medicare plans do have excellent TeleMedicine coverage. The best news is that Blue Cross of Nebraska is offering essentially free visits for telemedicine from now until 6/30/20. This is something that could be a huge benefit during these trying times.

At the time of booking your virtual visit we will pre-collect the visit fee, if applicable to your insurance. When your insurance claim has been processed, and if you have overpaid for the services, you will be reimbursed.

Patients without insurance coverage are considered “Selfpay”, please select the “Other Ins” option when booking online.

Cancellations: We require 24 hours' cancellation notice if you are unable to keep your TeleMedicine appointment. If you do not give sufficient cancellation notice you will forfeit the pre-collected visit fee and will not be refunded.
