The on-demand service for doctor house calls Heal is now in-network with Anthem Blue Cross of California, the company has announced. As a result, the health insurance provider can provide many large group and small group PPO plan members across Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco and Silicon Valley with access to top physicians without ever leaving home.
“Heal members and their families don’t have to leave their home to see a doctor, and now by joining forces with Anthem Blue Cross of California, it won’t cost them a cent more than a typical in-office visit, ” said Dr. Renee Dua, co-founder, Heal.
Anthem Blue Cross of California PPO plan members can now take a photo of their insurance card and be eligible for services that include urgent, primary and preventative care without incurring additional costs, as well as free annual wellness exams. Typical co-pays range from $10 – $30 and Heal members will only pay that specified amount, instead of the $99 all-inclusive fee, when they receive a house call from their doctor through the app.
Heal’s service provides patients with access to licensed physicians seven days a week any time from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the click of a button. Physician services include, but are not limited to, annual physicals, blood tests and specialist recommendations. Seasonal in-home flu shots are available, as well.
The company has raised $5 million in seed funding round in June.
