At Bayless, we believe our “whole person” approach to well-being should save time and money while improving lives. That’s why we’re expanding our collaborative approach to healthcare to include Virtual Care services. Partnering with a simple to use, HIPAA compliant telemedicine software, we’re offering virtual visits so that you can meet directly with your Bayless provider from anywhere in Arizona.
When an in-person visit isn’t necessary, Bayless Integrated Healthcare’s Virtual Care program connects you with your provider using your cell phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. If you have a device with internet connection and a camera, you may be eligible and ready to book a Virtual Care appointment.
Bayless is proud to have earned CHQI Accreditation for Telemedicine. This important designation demonstrates Bayless is dedicated to quality and safety, and that we strive for a continual improvement of the services we offer. As the only telemedicine or telehealth accreditation program approved by the American Telemedicine Association, the CHQI Telemedicine Accreditation Program seal provides consumers with an easy-to-identify confirmation of quality from an independent third-party organization – a patient and consumer benefit that had previously been unavailable for telehealth care. Bayless is the first in Arizona and seventh provider nationally to receive the accreditation from CHQI.

Insurance coverage varies by plan and location, and providers also vary as to whether or not they bill insurance. Check with your provider’s office if you’re not sure about what your responsibility will be for this service. They can tell you what their office policies are as well as what your insurance covers. Self-pay is also available for virtual care services.
