    Frequently Asked Questions

    As a patient, do I need to sign up to Coviu?
    You do not need to sign up to a Coviu account. Your healthcare provider will use their account and send you a link to join at the time of your consultation.
    What do I need to make a video call?
    1. A modern device with a camera, microphone and speakers.

    2. A good connection to the internet. Your home Wi-Fi is generally fine or a good 4G connection will also cover you. 

    3. A private, well-lit area where you will not be disturbed during the consultation.

    Is a video consultation via Coviu secure?

    Coviu is end-to-end and peer-to-peer encrypted, meaning sensitive patient data is safe and not accessible by anyone other than the call participants. 

    You meet your healthcare provider in a private, secure online consultation room, that can only be entered by accepted parties.

    Coviu meets all domestic privacy legislation and is HIPAA compliant.

    How much does a video call cost?

    The video call is free (except for your internet usage). However, the regular costs – if any – of a medical consultation still apply.

    There are also Medicare reimbursements available for video consultations, so check with your healthcare provider to see if you are eligible.

    How much internet data will I use during my consultation?

    A video consultation uses less than half of the data you would use while watching a YouTube video in high definition.

    Data use is less on lower-speed internet connections, or if you’re using a less powerful computer, tablet, or smartphone. These factors can also reduce the overall quality of the call. Data use increases when there are more than two participants in the call.

    A 30 minute call with 2 endpoints will use roughly  450 MB at maximum speed.

    If your call gets pushed down to the minimum bandwidth usage it will go down to roughly 158 MB.

    How do I use Coviu's extra functionality?

    During your session, your practitioner may open various resources in your call, such as images, videos, forms for you to sign or a digital assessment.

    You will also be able to access a limited range of these tools as the patient or client. To access them, click the 'Tools+' button on your video window when you are in the call with the practitioner. However, it is recommended to wait for these instructions from your healthcare provider, to avoid interrupting the flow of the consultation.

    I have a specific question about my appointment.

    Coviu is not your healthcare provider, and we do not know who is conducting your sessions or when they are to be held. We also do not set pricing or availability.

    Please contact your healthcare provider directly if you need any information that is not listed on this page.
