Bella launches telemedicine and drive-thru clinic for potential COVID-19 patients

Denver Catholic Staff

Bella Health & Wellness, formerly Bella Natural Women’s Care & Family Wellness, has launched telemedicine appointments and a drive-thru clinic for patients who are experiencing cough, congestion, sore throat, fever, aches, influenza, or COVID-19 like symptoms.

Patients should plan for a telemedicine visit prior to a drive-thru appointment, not only to minimize unnecessary exposure, but also to assess the safest, most effective course of patient care. Both visits can take place on the same day.

Patients will receive a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan, including influenza and strep testing if indicated.

COVID-19 testing is in scarce supply throughout Colorado.  Bella receives an average of two COVID-19 test kits daily. To increase their ability to provide testing, they are working closely with a private laboratory and may be able to offer more testing in the weeks to come. But at this time, testing is not broadly available.

Bella will be billing contracted insurance carriers for telemedicine and drive-thru appointments. Self-pay is also available for a fee of $100 (which will cover both the telemedicine visit and the drive-thru appointment if required). Additional laboratory testing will incur added fees.

Patients should email telemed@bellanwc.org to request an appointment.

Questions from the media or the community can be directed to Katie Smith at katiesmith@bellanwc.org.

Bella exists to make people whole.

COMING UP: Flocknote makes it easy to sign up for Mass and more

Sign up for a digital subscription to Denver Catholic!

Flocknote is a communciations tool designed for parishes, and you might not know this, but every parish in the Archdiocese of Denver has a Flocknote account. In fact, within the Archdiocese of Denver Flocknote network, over six million individual messages were sent last year!

Flocknote recently launched a Signups feature that makes it easier than ever to create sign up forms. It’s especially helpful right now as parishes require parishioners to sign up to attend Masses, but it can be used for much more than that. If you’re a Flocknote user, check out the video above for tips on how to use it.

If you’re not already signed up for your parish’s Flocknote account, be sure to ask how you can start getting crucial parish communications!
