Telehealth through Blue Cross, Blue Care Network and HAP


Blue Cross and Blue Care Network

As a result of the 2015 negotiations, the GM Health Care Program for Hourly Employees now provides new coverage for online doctor visits through Amwell.

Amwell is the largest telehealth operator in the U.S., employing certified and specifically trained physicians to treat patients online. This new service provides employees enrolled in the BCBSM Traditional Care Network (TCN), the Blue Care Network with the ability to use a mobile device or computer to call or meet virtually with a U.S. board-certified physician, 24/7, from nearly anywhere in the country.*

With online doctor visits, workers in the Program now have more options for immediate access to health care when their primary care physician isn’t available. An online doctor visit can help with many health-related issues such as:

  • Sinus and respiratory infectionsgm-retailonline_facebook_final-020317

  • Minor burns, cuts and scrapes
  • Skin rash
  • Painful urination
  • Eye irritation or redness
