Also offering behavioral health and counseling services, known as teletherapy, Amwell’s licensed therapists will provide treatment for several conditions, including:
- attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

- panic attacks
- trauma/Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Can all family members use Amwell?
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.
