For your comfort and convenience, a telemedicine option is available if you would like to have a follow-up visit without coming to the office.

Please refer to these FAQs to guide you through the process.

Do I have to use this service? 

No. You are in no way required or obligated to use telemedicine services. However if you would like to see Dr. Mednick remotely for your convenience, you can only do so through this platform (NOT telephone).

How much will this cost?

A telemedicine visit will be considered exactly the same as a regular in-person visit. That means you will be responsible for whatever copay, coinsurance, or out-of-pocket fee you usually pay. 

Why Zoom

Dr. Mednick is using Zoom as her telemedicine platform because it implements state of the art security and encryption protocols to assure that data integrity and privacy is maintained. As a result, Zoom complies with HIPAA and HITECH requirements. 

How often can I use telemedicine visits instead of in-person appointments?

This will be determined on a case-by-case basis, so please discuss with Dr. Mednick. However generally you may not go longer than 6 months without an in-person visit. 

What equipment will I need in order to use this?

You can use Zoom on any browser or phone. A wired connection is preferable. 

Do I need to be in New York?

Yes. Dr. Mednick is only licensed to deliver telemedicine to you if you are physically located in New York at the time of your visit.

Is this covered by my insurance?

Based on state and federal legislation, this will now be covered as the equivalent of a regular visit. If you utilize out-of-network benefits, you will need to ask them whether they recognize telemedicine visits as regular visits. 

Is this secure?

YES. This is the primary reason Dr. Mednick is enrolling in this service and requiring it for all remote visits.

How do I schedule a telemedicine visit?

You can browse and request available times as you usually would at this site, selecting the "Telehealth" option.
