An E-visit is a convenient way to treat certain conditions using your mobile phone or computer. A WVU Medicine E-visit is an online exchange of messages (without video) between a patient and a physician, including any images or documents you would like your provider to review. Learn all about E-visits below.

 

 

You must have a MyWVUChart account to schedule and complete an E-visit appointment.

E-visits cost $38. E-visit reimbursement varies depending on the payor, and while many insurance companies cover this service it is recommended that you contact your health plan to see if they cover or reimburse for WVU Medicine E-visits. If your insurance plan does not cover this service, you may be liable for full payment.
