What is telehealth? 

Telehealth is when we use technology to give health care, info or education at a distance. You connect with a provider with two-way audio and video. We work with MDLIVE to give you telehealth. So your visit is secure (private).

How to sign up

You can sign up:

Once you have an account, you can browse doctor profiles. You can also see open appointment times and schedule a visit with a provider. Or have a video visit from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., 7 days a week.

For a video visit, you need to have an Arizona address. You also need to be in the state of Arizona during your appointment. State law doesn’t allow phone-only visits.

Our vision benefit preferred provider is Nationwide Vision. To find a provider, use the phone number listed  in the contact quick reference chart. If you receive vision benefit services from a provider who is not contracted with Nationwide Vision, you will have to ask the plan to reimburse you.

  • Eyewear – Medicare covered (coverage after cataract surgery)
  • Routine eye exam (refraction) – 1 exam every year
