My UNC Chart Video Visits
My UNC Chart video visits let you access the care you need without going to a UNC Health location.
If you’re not sure if you need an in-person visit instead of a video visit, we can help you decide. Call your provider’s office to discuss your health needs and schedule a visit. If you have a cough or shortness of breath or think you have been exposed to coronavirus, call your provider’s office before visiting. If you are having trouble breathing, seek immediate attention or call 911.
Note: Your location at the time of the virtual visit may impact the ability of your provider to complete the visit.
Before you schedule your virtual visit:
New UNC Health Patients:
- Currently we are not scheduling new virtual appointments for any patient located outside of NC due to state licensure requirements.
- Call the provider’s office to schedule an in-person appointment.
- You may receive virtual care if you are located in North Carolina. You may be able to receive care in a few select states depending upon state licensure requirements. Please check with your provider if you are going to be located outside of North Carolina before scheduling.

How much will a video visit cost me?
Video visits will be billed to your insurance. Many insurance companies are temporarily covering certain types of video visits during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Some insurance companies are waiving copay, coinsurance, and deductible amounts. Please contact your insurance plan for policy details.
