Retiree Wellness Benefits
MDLIVE/ Virtual Visits
There’s never a convenient time to get sick. But now you have access to a board-certified doctor around the clock for non-emergency health issues. Connect by mobile app, online video or telephone. Virtual visits typically cost less than going to the doctor. Register at MDLIVE.com/bcbstx or by calling 1-888-680-8646.
When your doctor recommends surgery, call Surgery Plus. They will help you find a board-certified surgeon with an extensive history of quality care, set up your initial consultation, and walk you through each step of the planning process. Surgery Plus negotiates all costs before you have surgery, then coordinates the payment for you. They offer pre-negotiated, bundled rates, ultimately lowering costs up to 50% of what you and the city might have paid. The bonus? Your co-insurance is waived if you use Surgery Plus!
