Virtual Care Solutions For Your Employees

Over the last few years, virtual care has become an essential benefit to our members. During that time, Independence Blue Cross (Independence) has included more virtual care benefits that cover a wide range of services, from dermatology to nutritionist and behavioral care visits. For many of your employees — millennials in particular — this shift could lead to a welcome, lasting change.

Virtual care solutions offer:

  • Comfort and Convenience – Virtual visits can be easier to fit into busy schedules, and employees may not even need to take time off work or arrange for child care.
  • Control of Infectious Illness – Telehealth appointments allow doctors to prescreen patients, helping sick employees heal at home and preventing workplace outbreaks.
  • Better Assessments – When doctors can see patients in their home environment, they are often better able to assess symptoms.
  • Primary Care and Chronic Condition Management – Telemedicine makes it easier for employees to keep up with visits and stay on top of their health care.

Learn more about your virtual care benefits, and how to get started.
