UPDATE 3/23/20:  Enhanced Telehealth Services and Special Assistance for the Uninsured Now Available During Pandemic Crisis

During these uncertain times, we are happy to notify you that BCBSVT, working together with its in-network providers and national telemedicine contractor, has expanded and enhanced telemedicine benefit coverage. 

As of March 20, these additional services will be available to VEHI subscribers and anyone enrolled in a BCBSVT benefit plan:

  • Urgent Care telemedicine services through Amwell at no cost to employees. (Amwell contracts with BCBSVT to provide telemedicine benefits.)
  • Vermont providers can now offer expanded telemedicine services over various auto-visual platforms, at the same coverage level as an in-person visit.
  • Uninsured Vermonters are eligible for a special enrollment period through Vermont Health Connect.
