Telehealth is the use of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to access health care services remotely and manage your health care. It has been recognized that telehelath can provide an effective option to obtain care initially, while still helping to control the spread of infectious disease. It also offers convenience!
Anthem’s LiveHealth Online program is available to MMEHT members. Using LiveHealth Online, you can have a private video visit with a doctor via your smartphone, tablet or computer to get quick care for a common health issue, or access a provider through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). LiveHealth Online lets you have a video visit with a board certified doctor or licensed therapist from home, work, while travelling – anywhere you have an internet connection.
In most cases, you will pay a specialist co-pay for the LiveHealth Online visit. If you use your EAP benefit for counseling visits, there’s no charge.
Through December 31, 2021, cost shares for telehealth and telephone-only visits, including visits for mental health, will be waived for providers in the Anthem network, including for LiveHealth Online.
