Frequently Asked Questions

What is a telehealth appointment?

Telehealth appointments allow patients to meet with a provider face to face through a secure online video connection via smartphone, laptop, tablet or computer.

How do I schedule a telehealth appointment?

Your provider’s office will schedule the appointment for you or your child.

To be eligible for a telehealth appointment, you must:

  • Be in Kentucky or Indiana at the time of your video visit and use a Kentucky or Indiana pharmacy to fill your prescription.
  • Have a MyNortonChart account.
  • Have proxy access to your child’s MyNortonChart account, if the visit is for your child.

 

How much does a telehealth appointment cost?

Telehealth appointments are covered by most insurance, similar to an office visit. Self-pay options also are available.

What is the difference between my scheduled telehealth appointment and a Norton eCare video visit?

These telehealth appointments are not self-scheduled. Your provider’s office scheduled this visit for you as an alternative to coming into the office during the COVID-19 outbreak. Norton eCare offers video visits and eVisits that are self-scheduled for minor illnesses or concerns only for patients 2 and older, with Norton Healthcare providers you may or may not have seen before.

How do I access  telehealth appointments scheduled for my dependent?

You must have a MyNortonChart account and proxy access to your dependent’s MyNortonChart account. To request proxy access, log in to your MyNortonChart account from your laptop or computer and go to the “Profile” tab. Select “Request access to a minor’s record” near the bottom of the screen. Enter the required information about your dependent and click “Submit Request.” Your request will go to Norton Healthcare’s medical records department.

Allow one full business day for proxy access to be granted. You will receive notification in your MyNortonChart inbox when the request is fulfilled. Once you have proxy access, you will be able to select your child’s profile and access your scheduled visit.

Technology Troubleshooting

I am having computer issues.

Google Chrome 71 is not supported. You must have Internet Explorer 11 or newer. Make sure you’ve installed Adobe Flash Player with the most recent updates. Telehealth appointments will not function on Apple MAC or Samsung devices. If you are unable to connect using one device, use another if available (PC, mobile device and/or tablet).

I am having camera or microphone issues.

If you are on a computer, make sure you have a webcam set up. It can be a webcam that’s part of a laptop or a separate USB webcam. If you are unable to see yourself, this is most likely an issue with your camera. Check all connections on your camera. If you are on a mobile device or tablet, you must be within the MyChart app and not on your web browser. Make sure your mobile device settings allow the MyChart app to access the speaker and camera for sound and video by visiting Settings on your mobile device.

I cannot connect to the appointment.

Connect and disconnect your video feed to reboot. If you are on a mobile device, ensure you’ve closed other applications and restart your device if you need be to reboot.

My video quality is poor or not showing.

Switch from Wi-Fi to Data for better video quality. If you are on your phone or tablet, go to settings and allow the MyChart app to access your camera.

I am having trouble updating Adobe.

If you are on a mobile device, ensure that you are using the MyChart app and your web browser to connect. You must go to the App store and download the MyChart app (red folder with white heart).

I cannot find the MyChart app on my iPad.
Search “MyChart iPhone app.”
