During this time of uncertainty, we want you to know that Central Maine Healthcare is here for you. We have multiple options, including telehealth services, to bring you the care you need safely when you’re unable to leave your home. We now offer televideo and/or phone visits at most of our outpatient locations across Central Maine Healthcare.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a service provided to connect you with your healthcare provider virtually, without having to leave the comfort of your home. Telehealth includes phone appointments and/or video appointments with your provider using technology such as a mobile device or smartphone, computer or tablet. Depending on your needs and the purpose of your intended visit, patients are able to speak with their provider about medical conditions or concerns, symptoms, a diagnosis, request certain prescriptions, and more. Our Patient Service Representatives at our outpatient practices will discuss your options and advise if a telehealth visit is right for you.
Telephonic Visits (phone)
Now available in ALL primary care and specialty care practices, you are able to conduct your healthcare visit over the phone from the comfort of your home. Available for both current and new CMH patients, these appointments are scheduled by calling your practice of choice and requesting the appointment. Phone visits are the same cost as an office visit and covered by all in-network insurance providers.
Televideo Visits (video)
Central Maine Healthcare primary care and specialty care practices are currently rolling out the ability to conduct televideo visits. Video conferencing technology allows you to have a visit via video with your provider using a smartphone, computer or tablet. Below is a list of practices that are currently offering this service. We will continue to update the list as more are added.
