Telemedicine is a fast, convenient way to see a doctor virtually. Members with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas (BCBSKS) coverage can have a live visit on their computer or mobile device with a doctor at a time that works for them.
Blue Cross provides telemedicine services through Amwell®. With Amwell, members register for FREE, and the cost per visit is less than an emergency room, urgent care, or even an in-office doctor visit. It's easy-to-use, affordable, private and secure.
Members can easily register for a telemedicine visit and connect with a board-certified doctor in their area.
The cost of an Amwell doctor or therapist visit depends on the member's plan type.
As an innovative patient consultation service, telemedicine lets you interact with a doctor at your convenience for common conditions such as:
Also offering behavioral health and counseling services, known as teletherapy, Amwell’s licensed therapists will provide treatment for several conditions, including:
Therapists will be available on demand or by appointment from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. CST, 7 days a week.
If the member's spouse and/or children are covered under the BCBSKS plan, they are eligible for telemedicine services. A spouse should create their own Amwell account, but children or dependents under age 18 can be added to the primary member's account and have doctor visits on their behalf. Members need to register first, and then the child or dependent can be added to the account. Children or dependents over the age of 18 must create their own Amwell account.
The telemedicine benefit is available to members within a group health plan upon the group's enrollment anniversary.
