Covered Telehealth Services

Blue Cross/Blue Shield UT Texas plans have now eliminated the out of pocket cost of telemedicine and telehealth visits to members of BCBSTX plans. This has been done to encourage social distancing but to also all you and your covered family members the ability to access care when needed. Should your provider have questions regarding the benefits for Telehealth/telemedicine, they should contact their provider relations team at BCBSTX.

Optional coverage (including dental) is also available for family members, for more information contact:
