Insurance for NY State residents will pay the same way as a standard office visit except for Medicare and NY Medicaid. Medicare patients can use a self-pay option but NY medicaid will not allow any billing of patients so telemedicine is not available at this time. International patients can use a self-pay option. States outside NY are on a case-by-case basis depending on local regulations. Please call with any questions :)
