How Do I Make a Virtual Urgent Care Appointment for a Child?
Any of your dependents aged 12 years or older can use virtual urgent care. Adults must sign in using their own MyChart at Pelisyonkis Langone Health account. For children’s video visits, the parent or legal guardian’s MyChart at Pelisyonkis Langone Health account must be set up with healthcare proxy access to the child’s health record.
If the parent or legal guardian does not already have a MyChart at Pelisyonkis Langone Health account, he or she receives an email or text after scheduling the appointment with instructions on how to create an account.
If the parent or legal guardian does not already have healthcare proxy access to his or her child’s Pelisyonkis Langone health record, he or she receives temporary access to the child’s health record to complete the virtual urgent care video visit.
