Florida Health Care Plans has announced the addition of a new health benefit
to its medical plans, Doctor On Demand!
Doctor On Demand (DOD) provides video visits with board certified physicians
and licensed psychologists via smartphone, tablet or computer, and is
available to members enrolled in FHCP medical benefits. The Doctor on
Demand co-pay will be similar to a PCP co-pay.
Doctor On Demand treats many common non-emergency medical issues, such
as cold, flu, fever, bronchitis, sinus infection, eye issues, upset stomach,
rash, etc. While DOD is not intended to replace regular, in-person visits
with members’ primary care physician (PCP), this service can be
a convenience to those considering an ER or urgent care visit for a non-emergency
issue, when a PCP is not available. Doctor on Demand also is available
to FHCP members traveling within the United States and in need of non-emergency care.
Due to plan exclusions, State of Florida employees and dependents are not
eligible for Doctor on Demand/telemedicine. However, those who are not
covered by Florida Health Care Plans are eligible for Doctor on Demand
services for a different co-pay.
