Online Care Brings Healthcare To Your Home – In a growing number of states, moms have a new resource to help manage their family’s health, quickly and conveniently. Online Care is an innovative service that allows busy moms like you to connect live with a doctor, whenever you have a health concern, from home! Using a webcam, secure text chat and/or phone, you can have a face-to-face conversation with a local doctor, pediatrician, or other specialist.
Whether you need help with a lingering sinus infection; your 4-year old’s rash; or advice on managing high blood pressure, a doctor is just a click away. You don’t even need to make an appointment or spend time in a waiting room. Simply log on, select the doctor you prefer and you’ll be connected immediately. Through your live conversation, the doctor will answer your questions, guide you to the appropriate treatment and, if necessary, write you a prescription.
Online Care, powered by American WellTM technology, is available through participating health plans and other health companies, on a state-by-state basis, including OptumHealth, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Hawaii (HMSA) and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York.
