Telehealth Services at NVRH
We are open and ready to see you.

Contact your health insurance company if you have any questions about your telehealth visit coverage.
Tips for a successful telehealth visit
- You will need a video camera on your computer or laptop, or just use your smart phone.
- You will need a stable internet connection with a minimum speed of 3-5 Mbps. If you are not sure of your internet speed, be sure to turn off or close all streaming devices or apps before you connect for your appointment.
- Sign up for MyPortal and telehealth visits several days before your scheduled appointment so they are no last minute delays. Your healthcare provider’s office may be able to help you sign up.
Security and Privacy
Telehealth has the same privacy rules as an in-person visit. NVRH MyPortal is HIPAA compliant.
