WCH TodayCare currently provides:
Will I be able to see my regular doctor through WCH TodayCare?
Not all WCH active staff doctors are currently participating in virtual visits but they are all qualified doctors within the Wooster
Community Hospital Health System. You will be able to see all the doctors qualification and you will then be able to choose the doctor you feel most comfortably fits your needs.
How long do virtual visits last?
Visits typically vary just as if you were in the doctors office. Since they are non-emergent issues, the visits tend to last about 15
minutes. However, as different practices are added to WCH TodayCare, each practice will specify how long each appointment will take.
Are virtual visits as good as in-person visits?
Patients are typically very satisfied with the care they receive through online visits. The physician will have a series of questions that they will ask you and sometimes you will have to help the physician evaluate you. For example, if you are calling in because of a headache, the physician may ask you if you have any numbness, difficulty moving your neck, etc. to see if your issue might be something that needs to be seen in person. Physicians are allowed to prescribe medication through virtual visits.
Will my insurance cover a virtual visit?
Employers and health plans are adding teleheath as a benefit. When you enter your insurance information during enrollment you can see if you qualify. For verification you should check your own insurance plan. Documentation will be provided to submit to your insurance or healthcare company.
