During this time of uncertainty, RiverView Health is taking every precaution to protect its patients and staff regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Telehealth, or video visits, are now offered, when applicable, for patients with chronic conditions and other needs who are able to receive care without visiting a clinic.
Most RiverView providers are now available via telehealth for the following appointments:
Anxiety and depression
Establish care, with limitations of a physical exam
If you already have an appointment for one of the reasons above, you will receive a call from a patient access representative to determine if a telehealth visit is feasible. Most insurance providers have extended coverage to telehealth visits, including Medicare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Minnesota, United Healthcare/UMR, and Humana. Your patient access representative can help you determine if your insurance will cover a telehealth visit.
As a reminder, if you have symptoms of respiratory illness (these include fever, cough, muscle aches, sore throat, and headache) or questions regarding COVID-19, please call RiverView’s Coronavirus Nurse Screening Hotline at 218-470-7983.
