Heart House Patient Information
Heart House Is Now Offering Telehealth Visits
Now, you can conduct a face-to-face appointment with your cardiologist using your phone, without leaving your home. Telehealth visits are one of the many ways doctors and patients are adapting to the coronavirus pandemic, and this is a new technology for many doctors and patients alike. We are here to help get you prepared for your first telehealth visit.
For your convenience, we have made available online some patient forms that you may complete prior to your office visit. If you wish, print out and complete these forms and then, bring them with you when visiting our office. (You may want to print a second copy of these forms if you want to keep a record of this information.)

Many plans require patients to pay a co-payment for each office visit. Co-payments are due when services are rendered.
In order to see a specialist, many managed care plans require a referral from your primary care physician. It is your responsibility to obtain this referral prior to your visit. If a referral has not been approved by your insurance plan, your insurance may not pay for the visit. Without prior approval, you may be responsible for the charges associated with the visit.
