What's New in the 2017 Plan Year
(January 1 , 2017–December 31, 2017)

Virtual Visits

Available through UnitedHealthcare, Virtual Visits provides Rhode Island State Employee Health Plan members the ability to see and speak to a doctor online anytime from a mobile device or computer. Virtual Visits are good for doctor consultations regarding common acute conditions such as a cough/cold, seasonal flu, sore throat and sinus problems. Virtual Visits is not meant for any complex or chronic conditions requiring a hands-on exam or any kind of tests.

To access Virtual Visits, log on to www.myuhc.com and click on the Virtual Visits link on the right-hand side of the web page under the heading "What would you like to do today?" You will then need to choose and register with a provider. Amwell and Doctor on Demand are the Virtual Visits providers. You will then need to have your UHC member ID card handy, as well a credit card for the copay. If you are enrolled in the 2014 Plan, your copay will be the same as a primary care doctor's visit - $15. For Choice Plus Plan with HSA members, if the deductible has not been met, your cost will be the provider's contracted rate with UnitedHealthcare. Please disregard the rates advertised on the websites.

CVS Maintenance Choice with Opt-Out

Many employees have already received letters notifying them of implementation of the CVS Maintenance Choice (with opt-out) program. Through this program you can save money by filling your maintenance drug prescriptions through CVS mail order 90 day supplies or by picking up your 90 day supplies at CVS Pharmacy locations and select Target stores. There is no requirement that you use CVS to fill your maintenance medications. If you want to fill 30 day supplies of your maintenance medications at your preferred non-CVS pharmacy, you can opt out of the program by contacting CVS Customer Care at 1-800-307-5432.
