Sometimes, it just isn't convenient – or even possible – to get in to see your healthcare provider: Your teen comes home from school with what looks suspiciously like pinkeye; you've got a sore throat, but a busy schedule; or you're traveling and feel an ear infection coming on.
We're pleased to offer you an "always there" option – a virtual visit through FHNow!
FHN's new telemedicine app FHNow gives you access to a provoder via smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer, and your virtual visit is just $59.
FHNow is designed to be a convenient way to consult a healthcare provider when offices are closed or when patients aren't able to schedule an appointment in person. It is not a replacement for in-person visits with your primary healthcare provider.
FHNow is available to anyone – you don't need to be an FHN patient to use the app. FHN patients can have the notes from their e-visits forwarded to their FHN primary care provider.
An FHNow virtual visit is appropriate for non-emergency illnesses and injuries such as:
Appointments are available immediately or can be scheduled in advance, and FHNow physicians can send prescriptions to area pharmacies.
Lab work, x-rays and other services requiring in-person care are not available through FHNow, and children under 36 months with a fever must be referred for in-person care. Support for multiple languages is available through FHNow.
Virtual visits are $59, payable by credit or debit card. No insurance can be processed through the FHNow service; check with your insurance provider to see if the fee is reimbursable.
The fee may qualify for reimbursement from HSA or FSA funds; check with your HSA/FSA provider for details.
