Did you know you could skip the waiting room and get the care you need NOW? Employees with Blue Cross medical coverage through Danos can use BlueCare telemedicine services. With BlueCare, you can have online visits with U.S. trained, board-certified doctors 24/7, 365.

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a service where patients and physicians connect online and share information in real-time. Using a computer, tablet, smartphone, or any device with internet and a camera, patients can meet with a doctor for diagnosis and treatment without having to wait for an appointment I.e., patients can consult a physician from the comfort of their home.

BlueCare costs $39 upfront and is an easy way to treat non-emergency, common conditions like rashes, cold or flu systems, mild stomach bug, etc.

It’s easy to sign up!

  • Go to or download the BlueCare app for Android or iPhone.
  • Create your account with a username and password, which you will use for each BlueCare visit.

BlueCare is great for those times when you need to see a doctor but can’t find the time, feeling too sick to leave the house or are traveling. The next time you need care, the doctor will be only a click away!
