FEATURES OF THE UHC CHOICE PLANS

Get a doctor’s care for minor illnesses by video chat. Virtual Visits are a convenient way to access care. When you have a minor illness, you can see a board-certified doctor by video chat through Doctor on Demand, AmWell or Teladoc. Most visits take about 15 minutes, and the doctor can send a prescription to your local pharmacy, if needed. If you are enrolled in the UHC 750 or UHC 1000 plan options, Virtual Visits are free. If you are enrolled in the UHC 1500 plan, Virtual Visits are free after you meet your deductible.
NOTE: Copays apply for Behavioral Health visits conducted virtually as they are separate from Virtual Visits.
