What is telehealth?
Telehealth is a convenient and simple way to access a provider anytime, anywhere. Telehealth means having a visit with a provider using technology so you or your child can remain at home and still receive the medical care you need.What resources do I need to access telehealth?
- Telehealth involves two-way, live communication between you and the provider. It can be done over the phone or by a video call, similar to how you would use Apple FaceTime™ or Facebook Messenger™ today.
- If you need assistance with getting a phone, contact Safelink at safelink.com or call 877-631-2550.
- You can receive care for nonurgent medical concerns such as:
◦Behavioral health visits
- For life-threatening emergencies, please call 911.
Does my doctor provide telehealth?
- Many doctors are offering telehealth. Please contact your doctor’s office to find out how your doctor is providing telehealth and how you can make an appointment.
- If your provider does not offer telehealth, you may contact LiveHealth Online for medical visits at livehealthonline.com
Simply Healthcare Plans, Inc. partners with two providers that offer behavioral health services via telehealth for members across Florida. For more information, visit Brave Health at bebravehealth.com or Impower at impowerfl.org.
COVID-19: Five things to know about telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic
Jennifer’s Story: a telemedicine tale
Your primary care provider (PCP) gives you routine care, like checkups and care when you’re sick. If you need tests or a specialist, your PCP will help you get this care. This is called a referral. We pay for this care. In most cases, if you see a specialist without a referral, you may have to pay for the care. If you need care from a specialist that isn’t in our plan, ask your PCP for help.
For some services, your provider will need to get approval, or an OK, from us before you get them. Your PCP will work with us to get preapproval. Care decisions are between you and your doctor, but if you decide to get services without our preapproval, you may have to pay for them.
You can get these covered services without preapproval:
- Emergency services
- Preventive care services (well visits)
- Immunizations (shots)
We put tools and technologies in your hands to make it easier to access care and services. Your Care Plan is a tool for Simply Case Management members to help you:
- Stay connected with your care coordinator
- Get your care coordinator’s phone number and email address
- Send secure messages about diagnoses, goals, medicines, services and more
- View your goals and objectives
- Check due dates and statuses of goals and objectives
We want you to understand your benefits and receive the best possible care. Here are some resources to help.
Complete benefit information can be found in your member handbook.
If you have any questions, call Member Services at 1-844-406-2396 (TTY 711). Our team is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. You can also log in to your account to send us a message at any time.
