Millennium Physician Group (MPG) rolled out their Telehealth platform today to their over 400,000 patients across Florida. By being able to see their trusted provider without leaving their homes, MPG patients can now be more at ease about their healthcare needs in these times of uncertainty.
“Our patients are now able to connect directly with their provider to see them and discuss their medical needs by using our MPG Connect app”, said Marketing & Communication Director Liza Fernandez. “Our Telehealth platform differs from other third-party options, as ours is actually bringing old-school house calls to the patient with a twist, our providers are with them virtually. These are faces the patient already knows and trusts to give them the healthcare information they need.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, patients are more wary about office visits, which is why Telehealth is a perfect option for some. The virtual visit is still conducted and documented as a standard office visit and copays and deductibles will be charged accordingly. However, copays and deductibles for Coronavirus/COVID-19 related visits may be waived based upon insurer discretion. Patients must still meet the Department of Health criteria for COVID-19 testing.
In Florida, MPG has over 130 offices. And, while Telehealth visits are acceptable for some visits, the Provider will in most cases still need to see the patient in person, depending on the reason for visit (ex. your yearly physical, if you need to be seen multiple times in a short period, etc.).
