Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources
CHI Health released the following announcement: CHI Health is fully prepared, stocked and staffed to care for the community should the COVID-19 spread across the Midwest. Our teams at all of our locations frequently train for this very scenario, and we have plans in place to handle infectious diseases, including COVID-19. In fact, as part of CommonSpirit Health, one of the largest health systems in the country, we already have patients under our care in other states and are able to learn from that experience in addition to having the ability to tap the resources and expertise of those who are on the front lines caring for patients.
- CHI Health has announced a two-step process to help those in the community who are worried they may have COVID-19. The first step is to go CHIhealth.com and click on "Take Questionnaire" where you will find three short questions.
- Secondly, CHI Health is waiving the $10 fee for Virtual Care visits. They are now free until further notice for everyone who needs to speak to a physician or provider.
Take the CHI Questionnaire
How those questions are answered will determine what happens next.
You may be directed to more information, to Virtual Care or to our Help Line. Calling that number that will connect you with a CHI Health employee who will collect additional information and contact a physician or advanced practice provider. The health care provider will call you back within 30 minutes to determine what needs to happen next.
