What is Telehealth?
Telehealth provides quality health care through virtual visits, either through a video call or a regular phone call. Instead of adjusting your work schedule or trying to find a babysitter so you can go out of your way to a medical office, you can have your WellCare appointment right when you need it from the comfort of your own home (or wherever you happen to be)!
Who can use Telehealth?
The WellCare team offers Telehealth appointments to adults 18 and older anywhere in Kansas.
Most services available in a medical office can be done through virtual visits, including (but not limited to):
Urgent Care (Sick Visits)
Not feeling well? You can request a same-day Telehealth appointment with WellCare as soon as you need it. We can evaluate and treat problems like cold and flu symptoms, migraines, fever, cough, sore throat, acute pain, skin rashes, and much more - all through convenient virtual visits.
If you are already feeling great, we want to help you stay that way! We offer routine visits and check-ups focusing on preventative care. We can order routine labs and other testing as needed. We can advise you on and order recommended health screenings such as a mammogram for breast cancer screening or a colonoscopy for colon cancer screening. We can discuss recommended immunizations. And with today’s advanced technology, you can easily take vital signs like your heart rate and blood pressure at home and review these readings with us during a visit.
If you need medications, we can send prescriptions directly to your local or preferred pharmacy.
Chronic Disease Management
Chronic diseases like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes need routine management and monitoring to prevent serious complications. We make it easier to stay on top of these conditions and more with the ease and convenience of Telehealth visits at WellCare. We can effectively monitor chronic conditions with labs and home monitoring of vital signs or blood sugar readings. We can help with healthy lifestyle changes and order medications when needed. And if it ever seems like you would benefit from an in-person or specialist evaluation we can help guide and facilitate this.
Mental Health Care
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, and at WellCare we are here to care for ALL aspects of your health. We screen for and evaluate potential mental health challenges and offer a variety of treatments for concerns such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADHD, and more. We can also help connect you with local, recommended therapy resources.
