Now is a great time to see your local Mercy or MercyCare provider from the comfort of your home. Available through the MyChart mobile app, patients can connect with a provider in a live video chat to discuss their illness and symptoms.
Video visits cover a wide range of patient needs – from acute care to the management of chronic conditions to follow-up appointments.
Call your clinic to schedule with a Mercy or MercyCare provider. A Patient Service Coordinator will assist in guiding you through the appointment process.
Once your video visit has been scheduled, review the MyChart video visit instructions prior to your appointment.
You can also see an urgent care clinic provider through your mobile MyChart app. Learn more and schedule an Urgent Care Video Visit.
Yes, providers can write prescriptions for medications during a video visit. If the patient has a preferred pharmacy in their record, then the prescription will be sent directly to the pharmacy. The provider can also send the prescriptions to a different pharmacy if the patient indicates one during the visit.
Parents can schedule video visits for their children once they have requested proxy access for each child whose record they wish to access. When the application has been processed, you will see a new tab for the family member in your MyChart account. Parents would then need to select their child’s MyChart account to schedule the video visit for them.
Video visits are covered by most insurance carriers, and some carriers have chosen to waive cost-sharing at this time. Self-pay is also an option for this service.
Patients with Wellmark insurance will be billed through their insurance. The patients will then receive a bill for their copay after the visit.
For those that don’t have Wellmark, self-pay at the office visit rate is an option. The patient will be billed after the visit.
If the provider determines that your reason for visit is not appropriate for a video visit, they can end the visit and you will not be charged.
