Virtual Care Appointments became a strong way to connect patients of Lowell Community Health Center with providers during the Covid-19 pandemic. For a time, some state and federal agencies waived requirements for virtual care appointments across state lines.
However, due to changes in those previously waived requirements — effective immediately — Lowell Community Health Center will no longer be able to schedule Virtual Care appointments (video or phone) for patients located outside of Massachusetts.
Patients with questions regarding their care should contact Lowell CHC at 978-937-9700.
“The US Food and Drug Administration on Monday granted full approval to the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine for people age 16 and older. This is the first coronavirus vaccine approved by the FDA, and is expected to open the door to more vaccine mandates.”
We are expanding our patient experience surveys. Your feedback matters! If you have a telehealth appointment, you will receive a link to the new and improved survey by text after your appointment. Starting June 1, we will be launching a survey for in-person visits as well. Please share your thoughts so we can continue to improve your care.
