LVHN Video Visit: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is an LVHN Video Visit?

A: A video visit is a way to talk with and see your health provider through your video-capable, internet-connected smart device (mobile phone, tablet or computer). An LVHN video visit can take place nearly anywhere that is comfortable. It is important that this is a private space because you may need to show your provider an affected area. Your video visit is live and will not be recorded.

Q: Who is eligible for an LVHN Video Visit?

A: Anyone age 18 or older who has a minor illness or medical concern may schedule an LVHN Video Visit. You also must be within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania at the time of your Video Visit due to licensing restrictions. The health care provider will not be able to complete the Video Visit if you are calling from another state or country.

Q: What if I would rather have an in-person visit with my provider?

A: You may schedule an in-person visit with your provider by selecting the Sick Visit appointment option on the Schedule an Appointment page.
