Effective immediately, the State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP) has elected to expand their telehealth coverage for members and to waive any member out-of-pocket costs for telehealth visits, including visits for mental health, for a temporary period. This means member out-of-pocket costs for Anthem’s telemedicine service, LiveHealth Online, and care received from other telehealth providers is waived. The expansion of telehealth services will allow for telephonic communication, video cell phone communication and audio & video technology, to help members easily connect with providers, while maintaining compliance with social distancing.
