Pacific Blue Cross and EQ Care to provide the benefit of virtual health care.Wednesday, Sep 25, 2019
Pacific Blue Cross has entered into an agreement with EQ Care to offer our group plan sponsors the option to provide online virtual health care service for plan members.
From transportation to shopping, Canadians expect to access a wide array of services using their smartphones, and health care should be no different. As British Columbia’s number one health benefits provider, Pacific Blue Cross is continually innovating and expanding its offerings, with EQ Care’s virtual health care service being the evident solution for our digital world. Pacific Blue Cross has entered into an agreement with EQ Care to offer our group plan sponsors the option to provide online virtual health care service for plan members.
EQ Care is a leading Canadian virtual health care company enabling patients to access medical professionals through secure video, voice and text messaging via smartphone, tablet or computer. From family doctors to medical specialists and mental health professionals, Pacific Blue Cross plan sponsors can choose to provide members with access to medical care 24/7 wherever they are, any time, and in both official languages. Plan Members can also have prescriptions requisitioned, and lab or other diagnostic tests and specialist referrals ordered remotely – all without having to leave their home or office to endure long wait times.
This partnership with EQ Care provides Pacific Blue Cross group plan sponsors with a valuable option that reduces barriers of access to health care for members. This is a great way to save time and provide a solution for members living in rural communities. For our plan sponsors with employees, this option presents a modern benefit that leverages technology and positions them as progressive employer. It presents a “win-win” as it can reduce absenteeism, improve engagement and help with employee retention and recruitment.
Pacific Blue Cross has long been committed to offering market-leading tools and resources that will improve the patient journey and lead to better health care outcomes. Joining forces with EQ Care will bring better and faster access to medical care for Plan Members and enable them to live their healthiest lives.
