What is “Telehealth”?
Telehealth is defined as the delivery and facilitation of health and health-related services including medical care, provider and patient education, health information services, and self-care via telecommunications and digital communications technologies.
As an enrolled member in the State’s health plan, you have two options for medical and behavioral health:
- MDLive, a stand alone program that allows you to engage with a provider via technology for non-emergent medical and behavioral health needs for a lower cost. AND
- Seeing your own Primary Care Physician (PCP), Specialist or Counselor via telephone or video subject to copay and coinsurance of the plan in which you are enrolled.
