Virtual Visits Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What can I expect?
Patients with access to a smartphone, tablet or a computer with a reliable internet connection and a camera and microphone can do a virtual visit. Our Primary Care team offers convenient, personal and comprehensive care to each patient we have the privilege to serve. It's what we do best.
How can I communicate with my team outside of appointments?
Patients can communicate with their Primary Care physician through MyChart. It is a free, easy and secure way to view your personal medical information. MyChart provides you a seamless way to communicate with your Inova healthcare team and have access to your medical records so you can manage your health.
What will I need to participate in virtual visits?
To participate in virtual visits, you will need a smartphone, tablet or a computer with a reliable internet connection and a quiet location to speak.
How will I be billed for a virtual visit?
The normal billing process will apply to Primary Care virtual visits for both insured and self-pay patients.
Can I do my annual physical exam via virtual visit?
No. Annual physical exams (except Medicare annual wellness visits) require your provider to perform a physical exam which is done during an in-person visit.
I am due to have blood tests and/or vaccines. Can I still schedule a virtual visit?
Yes. You can begin with a consultation with your provider via virtual visit and then come into the clinic for a quick nurse visit for your vaccination or lab work. We offer a full-service lab at each Primary Care location. This will help to minimize the time you spend in the clinic.
