What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine services are similar to the services our patients receive in our clinics, except, they are provided in patients’ homes via an app or web browser. Patients and Telemedicine providers are able to see and speak with each other.
Telemedicine providers may prescribe and/or refill many common medications and provide care for the many common ailments.

What Device Can I Use?
Telemedicine visits work with every browser, as well as Android and iOS devices. Patients receiving services will receive specific instructions describing how to connect with their provider, after speaking with our call center staff.
Patients need a reliable, high-speed, internet connection to receive service. We strongly recommend that patients keep their device plugged in while connected with Nova Health and use a Wi-Fi connection they are certain is secure. Using your cellular data plan (if any) may result in charges to you and/or the account holder.
Is Insurance Accepted for Visits?
What If I Don’t Have Insurance?
At Nova Health, we understand healthcare costs can be substantial, unexpected, and often complicated. Nova Health accepts most health insurance plans and can bill insurance companies directly. Certain insurance plans may not cover telemedicine services, however, insurance coverage is evolving rapidly in response to Federal and State emergency proclamations addressing COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Many insurers are adding coverage for telemedicine services. If you wish to use your health insurance benefits, you will be responsible for the cost of any co-pay, co-insurance, patient responsibility, and non-covered services as determined by your insurer.
