Technology has evolved, and so has the way you see your doctor.  Now APS Blue Cross Blue Shield members can see a doctor in an average of 10 minutes or less, in most instances, using a mobile app or online video depending on your location. There is no copayment on the APS plan for virtual visits with a MDLIVE doctor, so you can save time and money when you use virtual visits!

With virtual visits, powered by MDLIVE, you can talk with an independently contracted, board-certified MDLIVE doctor 24 hours a day, seven days a week from almost anywhere you are! And if your doctor determines you need a prescription, it can be sent electronically to the nearest pharmacy. It's a faster and more convenient way to get the treatment you need when you need it.

The world is changing, and so is the way you see the doctor!  Some common conditions MDLIVE doctors can help treat are acne, allergies, cold/flu, constipation, cough, diarrhea, ear problems, fever, headache, insect bites, nausea, pink eye, rash, respiratory problems, sore throats, urinary problems/UTI, vomiting, and more, including behavioral health.
