Online telemedicine visits — from the comfort of your home

You don’t have to skip or cancel your medical appointments because of COVID-19. To keep your health on track and help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, we’re offering telemedicine virtual care visits.

Whether you’re looking to make a new appointment or are limiting travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine appointments let you see a Geisinger doctor from the comfort of your own home.

And for Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) members who need care now, we’re partnering with Teladoc to offer virtual doctor visits — including COVID-19 screenings — at no cost to GHP members through June 15, 2020.

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine (also called telehealth) appointments let you speak to a Geisinger doctor in real time using video chat technology, similar to FaceTime or Skype.

Using a secure network, our board-certified doctors will advise, treat and diagnose you exactly the same way they would in a traditional office appointment — only in a live virtual visit. 

It’s completely safe — and everything is right at your doctor’s fingertips for review and interpretation before and during your visit. All you need is a smartphone (iPhone or Android), tablet or computer with a webcam and speaker, along with a high-speed internet connection. 
To see if telehealth is right for you or if your doctor is offering virtual visits, call 800-275-6401.

What is Teladoc?

Teladoc* is a telehealth service that connects you to board-certified, highly trained doctors who can diagnose and treat non-emergency issues right over the phone. No in-person visit needed, so you don’t even have to leave your house.

What if I’m experiencing COVID-19 symptoms?

While most people who have COVID-19 will experience mild symptoms, Teladoc doctors can evaluate your risk and recommend next steps. If you believe you’re experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19, use Teladoc before heading to your doctor's office, urgent care clinic or the ER if your needs are non-emergent. 

Geisinger continues to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak. To see the latest coronavirus updates, learn about coronavirus symptoms and more, visit our Coronavirus Resource Center.


As the COVID-19 outbreak evolves, the need for telehealth care has never been greater. As a result, you may experience extended wait times. Doctors are working to provide the highest level of care and will connect with you as quickly as they can. Consider using the Teladoc app if you are experiencing longer-than-usual wait times.
