Your Appointments, Closer to Home than Ever

Howard Brown Health provides remote appointments, allowing you to access your clinical team by video consultation. This mode of care is called “telehealth” and enables you to see and speak with a provider from the comfort and safety of your own home.

  How Telehealth Works

You can get started with telehealth by calling Howard Brown at 773.388.1600 and requesting a visit. You can also request a telehealth appointment by signing up for our new patient portal through MyChart. As a patient, you will need access to email and a video-capable smart phone or a computer with an enabled video camera, microphone, and speaker. If you don’t have access to a computer or video-capable smart phone, ask us about other options for your visit. You will receive an email before your appointment with a link to access your appointment. Please click on the link 10 minutes before your appointment time, you can connect on your computer or phone and will be face-to-face with a medical provider.

Common types of telehealth visits:

While most common needs can be addressed completely via telehealth, a provider may direct you to the appropriate clinic if you need an in-person follow-up or labs.

Insurance will be billed for your telehealth visit. All telehealth visits are eligible for our sliding scale fees. Any co-pays can be paid over the phone with a Patient Service Representative. If you are not able to pay over the phone, a bill will be sent to you in the mail.

To set up a telemedicine visit or discuss other options, please call us at 773.388.1600.
