CPCMG Offers Convenient E-Visits
December 2016

Easy to schedule with a prompt response from a CPCMG pediatrician, E-Visits allow parents the convenience of receiving medical advice from the comfort of home.

What is an E-Visit?
An E-Visit is an online visit for minor medical problems that can be treated without an office visit. Using MyChart, parents or legal guardians can consult with a Children’s Primary Care Medical Group (CPCMG) board-certified pediatrician about their child’s health issue.

How does an E-Visit work?
Using MyChart, you will complete a short questionnaire about your child’s symptoms and attach photos related to the illness. Next, a CPCMG pediatrician will review the medical information and photos, correspond with you using MyChart messaging and provide a diagnosis and treatment plan, including any prescriptions, if needed.

What health conditions can be treated with an E-Visit?
Only select health conditions are treated during E-Visits. If you request an E-Visit and the CPCMG pediatrician determines that an online visit is not right for your child, the doctor will refer you to your CPCMG pediatrician.

Currently we treat the following conditions:
Eye Discharge
Diaper Rash
Thrush
Head Lice
Eczema
Nosebleed
Vaginal Itch
Stye
Acne
Constipation
Spitting Up
Ringworm

Who can use E-Visits?
E-Visits are available to current CPCMG patients who have a MyChart account. If you do not have a MyChart account, please visit your CPCMG pediatrician’s office to sign up.

When can I use E-Visits?
You can submit an E-Visit at any time, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week!
If you submit an E-Visit between 8 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., you will receive a response within six hours. If your request is received after 4 p.m., you can expect a response by 10:00 a.m. the following day.

How do I request an E-Visit?
All E-Visits are submitted via MyChart. If you do not have a MyChart account, please contact your CPCMG pediatrician.

How much does it cost?
Each E-Visit costs $40 and payments are accepted online via MyChart. Your debit or credit card will be charged upon completion of the E-Visit.

Are E-Visits covered by my health insurance?
At this time, E-Visits are not covered by any health insurance companies, including MediCal.

How long will an E-Visit take?
Completing the E-Visit questionnaire takes about five minutes.

Will the E-Visit be with my regular CPCMG pediatrician?
Every E-Visit is conducted by a board-certified CPCMG pediatrician, but your regular doctor may not be the one replying to your E-Visit. The results of your visit, including all correspondence, diagnoses, and treatment plan will be automatically forwarded to your regular CPCMG pediatrician for review.

Can I get a prescriptions filled from an E-Visit?
Yes. CPCMG pediatricians are able to prescribe medications as part of your child’s care plan, and will send prescriptions to the pharmacy of your choice. You are responsible for the cost of any prescriptions, over-the-counter treatments or follow-up visits you may need.

CPCMG Nasal Flu Vaccine Update
June 2016

You have likely read or heard that nasal flu vaccine will not be offered this year based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics. It is important for you to know that CPCMG strongly believes in protecting our patients against influenza, and has already ordered a significant amount of injectable vaccine for this coming season. Furthermore, we are actively working to acquire additional vaccine. Our goal is to provide this important service to as many of our patients as possible.
