In-Person Office Visits Required in 2024
Due to changes in Telehealth coverage, as well as our practice’s belief that in-person office exams provide superior care for the complex conditions of our kidney-care patients, we will no longer be offering Telehealth visits as an option for our patients as of January 1, 2024. Coverage of Telehealth services was initially expanded to reduce exposure, and help limit the spread of, COVID-19. Austin Kidney Associates adopted Telehealth technology during the Public Health Emergency to support efforts to reduce exposure to COVID-19. Now that the Public Health Emergency has ended, we will be returning to patient care that emphasizes the importance of face-to-face exams by our physicians and nurse practitioners.
