Telehealth visits are available at no cost

Virtual visits are a great option for both medical and mental health care when you need to see a doctor without leaving home. As an APWU Health Plan member, you pay $0 per telehealth visit when you use the plan’s providers. The plan waives all deductibles, coinsurance, and copays.

  • See and talk to a doctor 24 /7 from your phone, tablet, or computer.
