Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona launches telehealth services

Business News | 22 Jan, 2018 |

Expanding its telehealth services, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ) announces the BlueCare Anywhere program to connect its customers with affordable and convenient services from their phones or mobile devices. BlueCare Anywhere is now available to qualifying BCBSAZ members.1

Telehealth not only saves on out-of-pocket costs, it provides individuals and their families an immediate option for care rather than scheduling a traditional office visit. Telehealth’s virtual visits allow help wherever it’s needed, at any time. 

“Getting medical attention isn’t always easy to do if you are juggling work and family responsibilities,” said Mike Tilton, vice president of sales BCBSAZ. “BlueCare Anywhere helps by giving BCBSAZ members the flexibility to contact a physician at any time. They have a direct line to services day or night.”

This enriched telehealth program can be easily accessed at bluecareanywhereaz.com or through the mobile app. BlueCare Anywhere focuses on three areas of care – medical, counseling, and psychiatry.

  • Medical covers common ailments such as allergies, bronchitis, strep throat, urinary tract infection, sinus infection, pink-eye, rashes, and the stomach flu.
  • Counseling services address anxiety, stress, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), insomnia, depression, bereavement, and couples therapy.
  • Anorexia, bulimia, insomnia, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, bipolar disorder, depression, and panic attacks are examples of care under psychiatry.

BCBSAZ makes these services available by working with Boston-based American Well®, a leader in telehealth technology services. The company’s direct-to-consumer Amwell® offering is accredited by the American Telemedicine Association. American Well’s affiliated provider network, Online Care Group, received the top accreditation score by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
