MyChart can assist in shopping for health insurance; however, refer to UCHealth’s list of accepted insurers to determine whether your plan qualifies and speak to a licensed insurance broker to select an ideal plan that matches your needs and budget.

UCHealth will submit your claim to your primary and any secondary insurance you select, depending on your plan. Any remaining balance after payment by primary insurance could fall on you; to help ensure you pay an accurate amount, the MyChart account offers information about costs before receiving services. Additionally, many UCHealth locations post pricing information to inform uninsured patients of their financial obligations.

COVID-19 vaccinations

UC Health now provides patients an easy way to view COVID-19 vaccination records through their MyChart patient portal, including using QR codes or downloading PDF versions as proof for medical, work, school, or travel purposes. This digital vaccine record also forms part of UCHealth’s SMART Health Cards framework, which creates paper or digital versions of trustworthy and verifiable documents across organizations – developed through VCI membership.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) strongly suggests immunizing all persons against COVID-19, as it can protect pregnant women against severe illness and even death from this infectious disease.

UCHealth believes its COVID-19 vaccines to be safe and effective; clinical trials conducted with thousands of participants show no side effects from vaccination. Eligible patients should schedule appointments at one of its vaccination centers. Two office-based clinics in Clifton offer first, second, and third doses and booster vaccinations. In contrast, an automated drive-thru center at the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute parking garage offers vaccines Monday through Friday.

Vaccines need time to work their magic, usually taking six weeks from their initial injection. Because UCHealth recognizes that COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness decreases with time, they recommend booster shots every year or so for adults.

Telehealth video visits

Telehealth video visits allow patients to connect with their physicians from home or other remote locations without visiting a clinic or hospital, often making appointments faster and less costly than in-person office visits. They are usually quicker and cheaper, however, emergency room or urgent care visits remain important options if something serious arises, such as broken arm pain.

You will require a smartphone or tablet equipped with camera capability and fast internet access to participate in a telehealth video appointment. Signing up on the MyUCDavisHealth website or downloading its App from the App Store or Google Play Store allows you to sign in using username/password authentication before beginning the ePre Check-In and scheduling your video visit.

Before attending your appointment, you must bring two items: photo identification and a private setting where you can speak freely without being interrupted or disturbed, plus an environment conducive to holding and using devices with cameras.

You’ll need to answer questions and provide details regarding your condition at your appointment. Your doctor will make notes during the visit and may suggest a treatment course or send a prescription to your pharmacy. After each visit, MyChart or similar services will summarize what transpired via mail if they have created no online account.

Mobile devices have become an indispensable component of their work at UCHealth for doctors, nurses, and other providers, streamlining clinical workflows to produce faster decisions with more excellent patient outcomes. Nurses using Epic Rover on iPhone can remotely access patient records while performing tasks such as barcode medication administration, specimen collection, and alert and alarm management.
