Visit UPMC AnywhereCare
*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.
**UPMC Health Plan members located in Pennsylvania at the time of virtual visit may select a UPMC-employed provider or a provider from Online Care Network II, P.C. (OCN), subject to availability. Members located outside of Pennsylvania will receive service from OCN. OCN is not an affiliate of UPMC.
Your wait time for UPMC AnywhereCare may be longer than usual due to increased call volume. If there is a wait, you can stay in the virtual waiting room or choose "text me when the provider is available."
While almost all of our Individual and Group plans include extensive telehealth benefits, some ASO/self-funded employer plans do not cover telehealth services.
If you have questions about your coverage, see your plan documents or contact Member Services for the most up-to-date information regarding your benefits.
