Telemedicine

Northern Illinois Medical Associates is now offering Telemedicine visits with our providers!

What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine allows healthcare providers evaluate, diagnose and treat patients at a distance using telecommunication technology.  Many insurance plans consider these services a covered benefit.  We encourage you to check with your insurance about your specific coverage.

How to Schedule a Telemedicine Appointment:

All you will need is a smartphone or a computer with a camera and microphone in order to connect with our providers.  Call any of our offices and ask to schedule a TeleVisit appointment. Staff will give you further instructions on how to connect over our secure telemedicine platform that does not require any downloads or accounts.
