Scheduled Video Visits
See your doctor or a specialist with a convenient video visit
Want to talk with your primary care doctor about a health issue? Need a follow-up appointment with your cardiologist? Looking to get a consult from a specialist? Struggling with depression and need to talk with your therapist?
Whatever your health concern, scheduling a video visit with your doctor or a specialist means you don’t have to leave home to receive the care you need.
What kind of appointments work best with a Scheduled Video Visit?
In addition to primary care visits with your own doctor when you are sick or having a health problem, many specialists across Henry Ford Health offer Scheduled Video Visits. These are available for both returning patients for follow-up appointments or new patients.
While many types of specialty appointments can be conducted by video – from prenatal check-ups to sports medicine consults and much more – there are some limitations depending on your condition or needs.
If you plan to see a doctor in one of the following specialties, check out specific details and/or instructions:
- Behavioral Health (mental health and addiction services)
- Women’s Health (prenatal care)
Once completed, an after-visit summary of your Scheduled Video Visit appointment will appear in your Henry Ford MyChart account under the “Past Appointments” section. The audio and video from the visit is not recorded.
Most insurance plans cover the cost of a video visit, just like a regular doctor’s visit.
