Connect 24/7 with Virtual Visits

With 24/7 Virtual Visits, you can connect to a Designated Virtual Visit Provider by phone or video* using myuhc.com® or the UnitedHealthcare® app. These Virtual Visit providers are part of a select group of network doctors focused on providing quality virtual care when you need it. They can treat a wide range of health conditions, from flu and pinkeye to migraines and more, and can even prescribe medication** as needed. Since 24/7 Virtual Visits can treat many of the same conditions as an ER or urgent care, so it may be a good option to use as an alternative.

Support your emotional well-being

Behavioral health is an essential part of your overall well-being. No matter how big or small of an issue — if mental or emotional challenges are affecting you, it matters.

Get connected to self-help digital tools, behavioral health providers (in-person or virtual) and other resources that can help with a variety of concerns such as:

  • Stress relief
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Coping with grief and loss
  • Medication management
  • Compulsive habits and eating disorders
  • Alcohol and drug use

Behavioral health virtual visits

Reaching out may be hard —especially if you might not want anyone to know you’re hurting. From the privacy of home and the convenience of your mobile device* or computer, you can receive caring support from a licensed therapist.

Designed to help treat conditions like ADD/ADHD, anxiety, mental health disorders, addiction, and depression, virtual therapy offers confidential counseling and includes: 

  • Private video sessions — in your home and at a time that’s convenient for you 
  • Help with coping for adults, children, and teens — your licensed therapist may provide a diagnosis, treatment and medication if needed 
  • Similar standard of care as in-person visits — you can see the same therapist with each appointment and establish an ongoing relationship 

Once your coverage is effective, be sure to register on myuhc.com or call the number on your health plan ID card. 

Keep up on preventive care

A big part of living a healthier life is detecting health issues early. Preventive care — such as routine wellness exams and certain recommended screenings and immunizations — is covered by most of our plans at no additional cost when you see network providers. A preventive care visit may be a good time to help establish your relationship and create a connection for future medical services.
