Breaking Down Barriers: The Power and Convenience of Virtual Visits for Your Health
Variety Care expands Telehealth Offerings
In today's fast-paced world, we understand that accessing quality healthcare can be challenging, especially for lower-income families relying on SoonerCare (Medicaid). That's why we want to introduce you to the convenience of virtual visits, a modern solution that bridges the gap between busy lifestyles and essential healthcare.
What is a Virtual Visit?
A virtual visit, also known as telehealth or telemedicine, is a revolutionary way to connect with healthcare professionals without leaving the comfort of your home. Instead of traveling to a physical location, you can consult with a doctor or nurse through video calls, phone calls, or even secure messaging. This digital approach allows for personalized and timely healthcare interactions, tailored to your needs.
The Ease of Virtual Visits:
For lower-income families, navigating the challenges of transportation, work schedules, and childcare can make attending in-person medical appointments a daunting task. Variety Care recognizes these barriers and is making access to care easier. Patients now have the convenience of texting "TELEMED" to 405-632-6688 in order to easily switch their appointment to a virtual visit. This option is particularly useful if they encounter any issues on the day of their appointment, such as a flat tire or being unable to leave work.
Virtual visits offer a lifeline by eliminating barriers, making it easier for you to prioritize your health. Here's why virtual visits are an excellent option for your busy lifestyle:
- Convenience at Your Fingertips:
With virtual visits, all you need is a smartphone, tablet, or computer with internet access. This accessibility means you can connect with healthcare professionals from the comfort of your home or any location that suits you. There’s no need to spend time and money on transportation or take time off work.
If you do not have internet access or a smart device, you might be eligible to receive one or both of those for free. Check out Assurance Wireless to learn more.
