It’s Not Just for When You’re Sick
Many Bledsoe participants have discovered that virtual doctor visits are a convenient way to get care when they’re sick. But did you know virtual care is an option for many kinds of health services?
PREVENTIVE CARE: Talk with a doctor about which preventive services are right for you, schedule tests like mammograms or blood tests, and even get an at-home test for colon cancer mailed to your house. Recommended preventive services are 100% covered.
PRESCRIPTIONS: Request a refill for an expired prescription, talk about drug alternatives, or ask if a specific medication is right for you. Prescriptions are sent to the pharmacy of your choice for you to pick up.
DERMATOLOGY: Upload a photo of a rash, mole or other skin condition, and a dermatologist can virtually diagnose the condition and recommend a treatment plan. (Best of all, you don’t have to wait weeks for an in-person dermatology appointment.)
FOLLOW-UP VISITS: A virtual visit with your doctor after surgery or to evaluate your recovery from an illness is just as effective (and much more convenient!) as an in-person visit. Ask your doctor if this is an option for you.
CHRONIC CONDITIONS: Virtual visits reduce time-consuming, in-person visits and offer better access to specialized care. Your doctor can help you with lifestyle changes, quickly treat new symptoms, and help you stay out of the hospital.
MENTAL WELLNESS: Have a confidential virtual visit with a therapist from the comfort—and privacy—of your own home when it’s convenient for you, without waiting weeks for an in-person visit.
