Step 1: Login to myPRES
As a Presbyterian plan member, you can access Video Visits from your myPRES dashboard. Once there, click the “Access Video Visit” link to begin.
Step 2: Request Your Online Visit
You will need to enter your symptoms and confirm your contact information. If you have a copay, you will also need to enter your payment information. A care coordinator will call you after you schedule a visit and place you into the Waiting Room queue.
Step 3: Your Visit
Within 45 minutes or less, you will connect with a medical provider. He or she will ask you to describe your medical issue, offer a diagnosis and medical advice, and, if a prescription is appropriate, send one to your pharmacy. Expect your visit to take about 10 – 15 minutes once connected.
Step 4: Get Your Visit Summary
Within 24 hours or less following your visit, your visit summary will be available to view/print. Return to your Presbyterian Video Visit profile account via myPRES anytime to review past medical information.
