How does Telehealth work?
Telehealth is an innovative patient consultation service that lets you connect with a U.S. board-certified, licensed and credentialed doctor quickly and easily. Rather than having to schedule a doctor’s appointment and travel to and from the doctor’s office, telehealth lets you interact with a doctor at your convenience for common conditions, such as:
- sinus infection
- abdominal pain
- ear infection
- sore throat
Who provides telehealth services?
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska provides telehealth services through American Well,® also known as Amwell, the industry’s leader in telehealth solutions. With Amwell, you can register for free, and the cost per visit is less than the cost of an in-person doctor office visit.
A great patient experience begins with your doctor. That’s why Amwell offers access to a national network of U.S. board-certified physicians including family medicine, internal medicine, pediatric and emergency medicine physicians. With an average of 15 years in practice, these doctors are credentialed, certified and trained to practice online medicine.
