CBN is partnering with Docity to bring you a new type of service. Docity provides a telehealth portal through which you can connect with a medical provider using your computer, laptop or smartphone. The connection is very secure, with a patent-pending telehealth network that ensures your privacy. With this internet service, you can request medication refills, book appointments, and even see your doctor for a visit.
What is telehealth? Is it the same as telemedicine?
Telemedicine is providing health care services and clinical information using telecommunication technology. Telehealth is similar, but a little broader, since telehealth is the use of telecommunications to support and promote health.
How do I get this service?
After you enroll, you will be sent a link to connect to the secure website to set up an account.
How do I pay for it?
CBN will add the service to your monthly bill. The co-pay for the visit will be handled separately.
Can I see my doctor with Docity service? What kinds of doctors can I connect with?
After you enroll, you will be directed to a list of providers currently enrolled. If you would like to see a particular provider, please feel free to let him or her know about this service.

Docity provides an extra level of connection to medical services, which can give you the security of knowing a provider is available to you without the need for an office visit.
Can Docity bill my insurance company?
