Medical visits without leaving your home

Horizon Health’s telemedicine program allows patients to meet with their providers from the comfort of their own homes. To participate, you need a smartphone, tablet, or computer with video capabilities and internet access.

Telemedicine is available for primary care clinics in Paris, Chrisman, and Oakland, Like an in-person visit, a telemedicine appointment is scheduled in advance.

Note that telemedicine visits are billed through insurance like a typical in-person office visit.

How it works:

  • Call 217-465-8411 to see if your provider is participating in the telemedicine program. Our staff will determine if a telemedicine visit is right for you based on your specific condition/needs.
  • After your appointment is scheduled, you will receive an email from the provider’s office that contains a link and any necessary instructions.
  • On the day and time of your appointment, click the link within the email to begin your appointment.

Before your appointment:

Our telemedicine program uses Zoom, an online communication software that is available for all electronic devices.

Smartphone/Tablet –Download the Zoom application ahead of your appointment through the App Store (Apple) or Google Play (Android).

Desktop/Laptop –You will be directed to the Zoom website where your appointment will take place.
