Americans are using virtual urgent cares and other telehealth options like never before, with some providers seeing record numbers in recent months as patients seek to avoid in-person appointments. However, before you go virtual, there are some things you should consider.

Make sure you check your insurance coverage before scheduling your next virtual visit to understand your cost-share responsibilities. Also, take time to consider the location for your virtual appointment so you and your doctor can have a private conversation.
