FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Physicians Health Plan of Northern Indiana (PHP) has contracted with Parkview Health to add a local telehealth solution for PHP members throughout Northern Indiana and beyond.
By downloading the Parkview OnDemand app to a mobile device, or accessing the website, PHP members can launch a virtual visit with a doctor or healthcare provider for a subsidized fee of $20.
And, during the COVID-19 emergency, this fee is being waived for PHP members.
Through Parkview OnDemand, providers are available around the clock to treat many common, non-emergent adult and pediatric issues. The average wait time for a visit is 10 minutes or less.
Gail Doran, PHP Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer: “We are pleased to offer our members a local alternative for a doctor’s visit without leaving the comfort of their home. Our goal is to connect members with quality, needed care in the most efficient, cost-effective way. Telehealth services, such as Parkview OnDemand, provides the same-day visits and convenience factor many of our members need.”
Brandy Fey, Parkview’s Manager of Virtual Health Services: “PHP is passionately devoted to caring for their members with smart, innovative healthcare. Nestled in the communities we serve, both PHP and Parkview have a unique opportunity to positively impact those around us. As our communities navigate a new normal, accessing care from home or wherever you are is much more important. This partnership allows us to strengthen our community commitment by providing a quality, low-cost virtual care option for PHP and its members.”
