UPMC Health Plan's telemedicine service, UPMC AnywhereCare, has expanded to offer care to children of all ages. With UPMC Children's AnywhereCare, children ages 0-17 can have virtual visits 24/7 with UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh providers over live video. Anytime, day or night. Members who are 18 years old and older will continue to use UPMC AnywhereCare.
UPMC AnywhereCare is perfect for problems such as a sore throat, cough, runny nose, sinus infection, cold or flu symptoms, back pain, and poison ivy. Simply sign in and describe your symptoms. A provider will get back to you — often within minutes — with a diagnosis and care plan. You can even get a prescription if needed.
Benefits of UPMC AnywhereCare include:
- One more way to access great health care
- Less serious conditions get taken care of before they become more serious
- Less time from your day because e-visits take minutes, not hours
- Peace of mind that you’re always covered when symptoms arise

*UPMC Children’s AnywhereCare is available only to patients who are in Pennsylvania. In order for a child to have a UPMC Children’s AnywhereCare visit, the child’s parent or legal guardian must be with the child during the video portion of the visit, and the child and parent or legal guardian must be in Pennsylvania during the visit. If you are located outside of Pennsylvania at the time of service, you may select the standard UPMC AnywhereCare module, and you will receive care from a provider employed or contracted by Online Care Network II PC (“OCN”) at the discretion of the provider. OCN is not an affiliate of UPMC.
UPMC AnywhereCare is not a substitute for emergency medical care. If you have an emergency, go to the nearest emergency department, call 911, or your local ambulance service.
