Telehealth for Medical Needs
Medical telehealth visits are covered by WellSense if you use an in-network provider that offers telehealth appointments. Not all providers offer a telehealth option. To find out if your provider offers telehealth appointments, you should call their office and ask.
Telehealth for Behavioral Health Needs
