UPMC Children's AnywhereCare*
UPMC Health Plan's telemedicine service—UPMC Children's 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. Members 18 and older will continue to use UPMC Children's AnywhereCare.
UPMC Children's 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. You will be connected to a provider—often within minutes—who can provide you with a diagnosis and care plan. You can even get a prescription if needed.
UPMC Children's AnywhereCare offers these and other benefits:
- One more way to access great health care
- Can take care of less serious conditions 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
