Georgia Partnership for Telehealth (GPT)
CareSource works with GPT to give you more access to specialty care. You can see a provider that is far away using medical cameras and live video, from an office close to you. If you live in a rural area, this gives you better access to the care you need.
Your primary care physician (PCP) can refer you to a specialist. The GPT scheduling center can then schedule your appointment. You can meet with the specialist by video. This gives you a face-to-face visit. The specialist offers treatment and can then follow up with your PCP. You should also follow up with your PCP after the appointment with the specialist.
To schedule a visit, fill out an intake form at your PCP office or call the GPT scheduling center at 1- 866-754-4325.
Care and Disease Management Programs
You have full access to a continuum of services with community-based, care coordination teams to meet your personal needs. You also have access to disease management programs to help you learn about certain ongoing health conditions. Learn more.
