4 Important Benefits of Telemedicine

Are you suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED)? Sexual impotency is a common issue that can negatively impact your intimate relationships. However, during a pandemic, you may find it worrisome to be booking an appointment in a doctor’s office “just for ED.”

At Male Method, our sexual health experts want you to know that you deserve a fulfilling sex life, and you shouldn’t have to wait for an appropriate diagnosis and treatment. 

You can have an initial telemedicine appointment with one of our doctors to learn what can be done for erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, all without visiting our Mobile, Alabama, office.

Basics of telemedicine 

Approximately 20% of Americans live in rural areas, and many have to travel a lot of miles to get to a doctor’s office, especially one that specializes in men’s health. Telemedicine has been used for quite some time as a way to reach and serve such patients. 

When the pandemic began, telemedicine suddenly became routine, as even people that live just a mile or two from their doctor found that the option felt safe and prevented them from having to break their social-distancing plans.

You’ll still get the face-to-face meeting with your doctor, because videoconferencing technology lets doctors and patients see each other and discuss health issues and treatment plans just as if you were in the office.  

How telemedicine works

Telemedicine is easy. It’s a mode of communication technology that elevates medicine and makes health care more accessible and flexible. Telehealth refers to virtual visits that take place between patients and medical providers, using audio, video, and file-sharing options. 

Usually, a telemedicine appointment begins with making the virtual appointment. At the time of the appointment, you’ll use a link or a phone number to enter your meeting. You can use a computer with a webcam or a mobile device to see and talk to your doctor.

Telemedicine has many great benefits, including:

Who pays for telemedicine?

Health insurance and Medicare are mandated to cover medically required services delivered by telemedicine exactly as if they were provided in a doctor’s office. 

If you have any questions about how your insurance company handles billing and reimbursement, contact your coverage provider to make sure you know what is paid for and what you’ll need to pay out of pocket.
