What are photo-based virtual consultations?
Photo-based virtual consultations are a convenient alternative if you want fast access to dermatological care and do not wish to speak with a healthcare provider in real-time.
Many common skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, and other forms of rashes can be often managed through photo-based consultations. If your reported skin problem requires that you see a healthcare provider in person you will get this information as well so you can look up a dermatological provider in person.
In case of an emergency, please call 911.
What is the difference between a photo-based care request and a physical consultation?
The main difference between photo-based virtual consultations and in-person care is how you interact with the doctor. Photo-based consultations offer increased convenience and accessibility, allowing you to receive medical care from your own home in your own time. Photo-based visits are adequate to evaluate many straight-forward skin conditions.rnrnIn-person visits allow a more detailed physical examination, which is necessary for some skin problems. If the doctor is not comfortable treating you via a photo-based consultation you will be recommended a physical examination.
How soon can I expect a response?
The response time for a photo-based virtual consultation can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the availability of the healthcare provider. Typically, you can expect a response within two working days. Virtual consultations should not be requested for emergencies or urgent medical conditions, as real-time interaction and examination are necessary in such cases. If you have a medical emergency dial 911.
How do I get a prescription?
Anna Chacon will prescribe a medication electronically and you will be able to pick it up at the pharmacy you have selected in the Miiksin app.rnrnVirtual consultations may not be suitable for all skin conditions and not all medications can be prescribed during a photo-based consultation, for example, isotretinoin (Accutane) cannot be prescribed virtually at this point.
Can I start a consultation for a minor?
It is currently not possible to request a consultation for a person under 18 through the Miiskin app as this requires a specialized consent. This feature is expected to come in late 2023.
What does it cost and when/how will I be charged?
Photo-based consultations with Anna Chacon are $59. When you start the consultation you will be asked to insert your credit card details. The amount will be reserved on your card, but it will not be charged until your consultation has been completed.
Can I cover the consultation with my insurance plan?
No, unfortunately not. For the time being the consultations are only available with out-of-pocket payments, but we are working on adding insurance coverage.
