Telehealth Speciality Visits

patient and family looking at provider on telemedicine cart screen

Your primary care provider has suggested you see a specialist right from his/her office via a telemedicine cart. Here is what you need to know.

He or she will set up an appointment with a Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) specialist. The specialist will “see you” in your provider’s office via videoconference. Working together, the specialist and your provider will determine the best treatment plan for you.

Advantages of telehealth specialty visits
Visits by telehealth prevent extended time off from work, and transportation and childcare complications. You will be seen by an MUSC specialist who has advanced training in the convenience of your local primary care provider’s office.

Scheduling the visit
Your local provider’s office will handle all of the necessary paperwork and insurance filing as they would for any in-person specialist referral visit. Insurance coverage varies, so contact your health plan for details or if you have questions about coverage.

Your primary care provider office can answer any of your questions or you may contact Laura Langston, MUSC Telehealth Program Coordinator at 843-792-7040 or
