What is a virtual visit?

A virtual visit is an online appointment with a healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse, or therapist. During the visit, the provider can assess the patient’s medical needs, review any test results, answer questions, and provide treatment recommendations. The visit usually takes place over video chat or phone, and the patient can log in from anywhere.
