Telehealth

Telehealth and Therapeutic Treatments

2022-05-23 | Fremont County Department of Public Health & Environment

If you test positive or think you have COVID-19, you may be able to use telehealth to access treatment options faster. COVID-19 treatment works best if you take it within a few days of feeling sick or testing positive. 

Telehealth means connecting with a doctor over the phone or through a video call. Using telehealth, a doctor can assess you and, if appropriate, give you a treatment plan that meets your needs.

If you have a health care provider, ask them if telehealth is an option for learning more about COVID-19 treatment. If you don’t have a provider or your provider doesn’t offer telehealth, you may be able to access telehealth directly. Learn more about telehealth providers that can prescribe COVID-19 treatment in Colorado.

Many commercial insurance companies provide telehealth services for their members. Contact your insurance company to learn if telehealth services are available through your plan. This could help you avoid out-of-pocket costs.

Additionally, some services listed below may accept private insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid. Be sure to read through each company’s information carefully to determine if they accept your insurance, and double-check with them when making an appointment. 

Some services may partner with a pharmacy for same-day or next-day delivery of COVID-19 treatments. Be sure to ask about out-of-pocket delivery and shipping costs, which may vary depending on location. Patients can also choose to have a prescription filled at a preferred pharmacy, as long as the pharmacy is an enrolled COVID-19 therapeutics dispenser. The provider can help you determine if your preferred pharmacy is enrolled or has inventory, or you can check the list on our website (under “pharmacies dispensing oral antivirals”).

If you have problems with any of the services listed below, email cdphe_dcphr_covidtherapeutics@state.co.us. You can also file a complaint with the Department of Regulatory Agencies if you feel that a violation of a law or regulation occurred during your visit with a provider using any of the services listed below.
