Telehealth Appointments: Get care from the comfort and safety of your home or dorm room.

Optum Colorado Springs is proud to partner with Colorado College to provide health services to students. During these trying times, Optum is creating new ways for students to get the care they need through Telehealth video visits.

Telehealth offers patients an opportunity to connect with their care team virtually through a video visit. Our care team can assess and treat medical needs, such as:

  • Annual wellness exam
  • COVID-19 (Concerns regarding mild to moderate symptoms or possible exposure)
  • Clearance to return to work after illness
  • Follow up of stable chronic conditions
  • Routine medication refills
  • Runny nose, mild to moderate sore throat, mild to moderate cough, possible pink eye
  • Possible urinary tract infection
  • Mild to moderate mood changes
  • Localized body rashes
  • And more...

To schedule an appointment call our team at:
1-719-389-6384 (TTY: 711).

*Please note, as a reservation is NOT an appointment, but we will try to see you as close to your reserved time as possible. *We are only able to provide Telehealth services to students that currently reside in Colorado.

*Not all visits are appropriate for a Telehealth video visit. Our team will help determine if a Telehealth video visit is the right fit for your medical needs.
