We are all living in unprecedented times, and understand why you may have missed or cancelled your scheduled appointment. Please know that it is also extremely important to us that you continue to receive the care you need even during this difficult time.
With this in mind, New Jersey Urology (NJU) has developed a solution that protects both our patients and our staff. As an alternative to an in-person office visit, NJU is now offering telemedicine services effective immediately. Telemedicine can be done through the comfort of your home allowing your physician to provide a “virtual” visit through your phone or computer.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have broadened access to Medicare telemedicine services, and major insurance companies have waived referrals and copay fees and obligations. Please check with your insurance provider as it relates to your individual situation.
“New Jersey Urology is excited to offer the convenience of telemedicine services to our patients. We want to empower our patients and give them the tools they need to manage their health amid the fluid situation we are all experiencing with the COVID-19 threat,” said Scott Ciccarelli, CEO of NJ Urology.
