Beaufort Memorial Hospital Care Anywhere is offering online provider visits

Beaufort Memorial Hospital released a statement stating "Beaufort Memorial Hospital Care Anywhere is offering *free online provider visits 24/7 for patients with symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breathe. *Patients with respiratory symptoms will have no out-of-pocket cost but their health insurance plan may be billed.

Free video visits are available until further notice to those who qualify. Restrictions may apply.

A patient can use a smart phone, tablet or computer to set up a BMH Care Anywhere account, select the “COVID-19 Visits” option, then see a board-certified provider and start a visit. The provider will review intake information, then connect with the patient to discuss symptoms and treatment options.

Patients will need a credit or debit card to begin their visit and will see an authorization hold of $59 placed on their account. At the end of the visit, the provider will waive the fee for patients with respiratory symptoms and the authorization hold will be immediately lifted. The length of time to clear the charge from billing statements varies by bank and/or credit card company.

In cases where COVID-19 is suspected, patients will be directed to a Beaufort Memorial Express Care location for additional screening to determine if they meet the criteria for COVID-19 testing.

To help reduce the spread of infectious illness in the Lowcountry, Walk-In Care kiosks at Publix pharmacies in Beaufort and Bluffton are temporarily closed."
