What Do You Need for Your Virtual Visit?

Need Help?

Virtual visits offer a safe, convenient way to get medical care. If you're having your appointment with video, know that we use secure platforms.

You’ll need:

  • To be in Virginia at the time of your appointment
  • For video appointments: An internet-connected device — computer, phone, or tablet — with a microphone and camera
  • For phone appointments: A phone

If possible, during your video visit:

  • Sit in a quiet, private space
  • Pause other internet use (other household members steaming videos, online activity, open applications)

Getting Ready

Before the day of your visit, get set up by following these instructions.
