Telehealth is a new service being offered by Capital Blue Cross to all Lehigh University employees enrolled in the University's medical plan. The service starts July 1, 2016.
This lower cost convenient service gives you the option of a doctor's visit via video on your computer, tablet or phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Copays for video doctor's visits are $10 and the service is available almost everywhere in the US.
Common illnesses such as bronchitis, sinus infections, bladder infections, pink eye, fever and more can be diagnosed and prescriptions can be written by the licensed doctors who staff the telehealth service. This alternative is a good option on evenings and weekends, when you're on the road, or when getting in to see your regular doctor proves difficult.
