All members of IU medical plans have 24/7 access to board-certified doctors from a smartphone, tablet or computer with a webcam. Telemedicine visits are already part of your medical plan coverage and only cost $59 per visit.
The doctor can assess your condition, provide treatment options and even send a prescription to the pharmacy of your choice, if needed. With telemedicine you can receive medical care for things like:
- The flu
- A cold
- Sinus infection
- Pink eye
- And more
You can avoid traffic, long commutes and adverse weather while minimizing time away from work and unnecessary exposure to other patients. Telemedicine is a great option for care when your own doctor isn’t available and it is more convenient and less costly than a trip to the urgent care. Typical visits with providers will last about 10 minutes.
Anthem LiveHealth Online also offers online psychology and psychiatry services as well as specialized pediatric medical practitioners.
