Virtual Forward plans offer your business lower monthly premiums, saving you money. Your employees also get $0 copays for most virtual services, and a $0 copay for the first in-person preventive primary care visit each year.3 With these incentives to seek virtual care first, your employees get more convenient care at more affordable prices.
Virtual Forward plans provide access to unlimited virtual appointments. This means your employees can access care anytime, anywhere, whether from home, the office, or on the go. Members can address medical concerns faster and stay healthier for longer, which means fewer sick days and less time away from work for medical appointments.
Our virtual care options deliver the same customized care as a visit to the doctor’s office—at no additional cost. This means employees can have appointments where and when it’s most convenient for them. When employees control how they access care, they spend less time managing their care and more time in the workplace.
Speak to care providers face-to-face using a camera-equipped computer or mobile device. Video visits are available for many medical conditions and specialties. Find a complete list of conditions here.
Discuss medical concerns with care providers over the phone—no need for a camera or a trip to a medical center. Find out what your next steps should be for care without leaving home.
Send secure emails to your primary care doctor, specialists, and other care providers, and usually get a response within two days. Just log in to kp.org and access the Message Center from the main menu.
Get on-demand medical advice anytime, anywhere from a registered nurse—without waiting for an appointment. Just call our 24/7 advice line at 800-777-7904 (TTY 711). Have your member ID card ready to provide your medical record number.
