Premier’s Tele-VISIT Program is available to members in Florida, Louisiana and Hawaii. Our Tele-VISIT Program offers both a real-time audio and visual interaction between a physician and a patient who is located at a remote site from the physician.
Our Tele-VISIT Program allows members to access telehealth services through the convenience of a smartphone or computer. This program offers Members access to a licensed provider who is able to perform assessments, write prescriptions if needed, advise on other acute eye care needs, and redirect to appropriate specialists as needed. In addition to making telehealth services available through our Tele-VISIT program, PREMIER will continue to assist members requiring further treatment by identifying an appropriate local provider.
COVID-19 Update: Under the 1135 federal waiver, CMS has broadened access to telehealth services for member eligibility, relaxed HIPPA rules and expanded the definition of telehealth. Members may now live anywhere and be eligible for telehealth services. The recent changes by CMS provides the opportunity to enhance our telehealth services for acute eye care services. Our expanded Tele-Visit Program will be available until further notice. PREMIER will continue to monitor this fluid situation and adjust to support members and providers as needed.
