Blue Access for Employers

Virtual Visits

Your employees’ health care coverage may include, our virtual visits solution, powered by MDLIVE. A virtual visit, lets them have a live consultation with an independently contracted, board-certified MDLIVE doctor. This can happen 24 hours a day, seven days a week by phone.2 Also, MDLIVE board-certified therapists are available by online video or mobile app (by appointment).

Instead of going to the office, employees can talk while at home, work or many other places. And, a virtual visit can cost less than going to the urgent care clinic or emergency room.
