Using your cellular data plan (if any) may result in charges to you and/or the account holder.

At BestMed, we understand healthcare costs can be substantial, unexpected, and often complicated. BestMed accepts most health insurance plans and can bill insurance companies directly. Certain insurance plans may not cover telemedicine services, however, insurance coverage is evolving rapidly in response to Federal and State emergency proclamations addressing COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Many insurers are adding coverage for telemedicine services. If you wish to use your health insurance benefits, you will be responsible for the cost of any co-pay, co-insurance, patient responsibility, and non-covered services as determined by your insurer.

Currently, we are only able to offer Telemedicine services to Oregon-based patients. This includes virtual COVID-19 screening, virtual primary care visits, and 24/7 virtual urgent care visits.

Using telemedicine for COVID-19 screening reduces your exposure and time in clinic for a COVID-19 test. To request a COVID-19 screening online, first schedule an appointment, select “visit related to COVID screening/testing” as reason for visit, and complete the process laid out above. Upon completing your visit with the provider, you will be directed to the nearest BestMed clinic. Important – you MUST have a telemedicine visit completed before arriving at the clinic for COVID-19 testing.
