RiverView Health In Crookston implements telehealth (Polk County)

Crookston Times reports…

During this time of uncertainty, RiverView Health is taking every precaution to protect its patients and staff regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Telehealth, or video visits, are now offered, when applicable, for patients with chronic conditions and other needs who are able to receive care without visiting a clinic.

Most RiverView providers are now available via telehealth for the following appointments:

  • Follow-ups/rechecks
  • Medication check-in/refills
  • Test results
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Establish care, with limitations of a physical exam

If you already have an appointment for one of the reasons above, you will receive a call from a patient access representative to determine if a telehealth visit is feasible. Most insurance providers have extended coverage to telehealth visits, including Medicare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Minnesota, United Healthcare/UMR, and Humana. Your patient access representative can help you determine if your insurance will cover a telehealth visit.
