COVID-19 update, 4/9/2020*
Medicare and Medicare Advantage Patients
We can provide covered telemedicine visits to patients with Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans in all states while the Health Emergency continues. Office visits for Medicare patients will only occur when essential and a smart phone or computer is not possible.
Private insurance plans
Private plans (Blues, Aetna, United, other) presently do not cover telemedicine visits with your own doctors (another reason for Medicare-for-all). If you feel you need a telemedicine visit with your own doctor, call your plan! You can still come to the office if you need a visit. We can also offer an outdoor visit if weather permits. Dr. Cheikin is also offering a 5-10 minute check-in phone call for $30 (less than what your telemedicine visit would cost). Longer phone visits are also available if needed.
For essential office visits, we are masking, practicing physical distancing, use an enhanced sanitizer, and have no more than four people in the office at any time. We ask that any visitors wear masks. For help on making a simple mask, click here.
Yoga is suspended for now.
Please check back for frequent updates.
