Virtual visits with your Florida Blue doctor

Now is the time to put the focus back on your health and well-being. It’s especially critical if you or a family member have canceled an appointment, have an underlying health condition or put off an annual checkup. Call your doctor to get care you may have been putting off and schedule a virtual visit.

We’ve made it easy to advantage of virtual visits and avoid a crowded office or possible exposure to the virus. A virtual sick visit or follow-up care is the same cost share as a regular office visit and you don't have to leave your home.

Get everyone’s care back on track with a virtual visit. It’s important to keep up with wellness checkups if you have kids, including routine vaccinations to help protect against other dangerous illnesses. Plus, it’s perfect timing to get school or sports physicals, or annual checkups for the adults, right from the comfort of your home, and wellness visits are at $0 cost share.
