Beginning in January 2020, select Cigna customers will be able to schedule appointments online to see behavioral health counselors or psychiatrists.
Enabled by MDLIVE and Doctor On Demand, the service will be available to for Livongo Members, beginning with Livongo for Behavioral Health, in January.
The solution enables the growing roster of hospital and health system clients to offer both asynchronous and synchronous virtual visits on a single platform.
No settlement payment or any other consideration was paid by, or on behalf of, MDLIVE or its management in connection with the lawsuit's dismissal.
The suit alleges MDLive takes screenshots during the first 15 minutes patients use its app, during which they are prompted to enter their health information.
The new MDLIVE Mobile app is now available for iOS through the iTunes App Store, and will be available for Android through Google Play by March 31.
The company's behavioral health network now has more than 1,300 mental health professionals with contracted psychiatrists in each state.
Initially, the benefit will be available to certain Medicare Advantage plans in Georgia and South Carolina offered for the 2017 plan year.
Together with Mental Health America, the company aims to screen 3 million people through 2017; it will also offer resources to those in need.
There are two different options to choose from: virtual consultations with a local primary care physician, and MDLIVE's telehealth service.
