Frequently Asked Questions

How safe is the information being shared during a virtual doctor visits appointment?

UnitedHealthcare requires all network providers, including virtual doctor visit providers, to comply with all applicable laws, including laws relating to the security and confidentiality of patient information. Virtual Doctor Visits providers are covered entities under HIPAA and its regulations. Therefore, these providers have direct legal requirements to protect and secure confidential patient information. Virtual visit providers determine the manner and means by which they meet these privacy and security requirements. More information regarding security and privacy is available on the virtual doctor visit providers' websites.
