- Blue CareOnDemand℠
All you need is your computer or smartphone device to see a
doctor anytime, anywhere, even when you are outside of South
Carolina. During your video visit, the doctor will ask questions,
answer questions, diagnose your symptoms and, if appropriate,
call in a prescription to your local pharmacy.
Doctors can treat most common, non-emergency medical issues, such as:
• Cold and flu symptoms
• Bronchitis and other
• Sinus infections
• Ear infections
• Rashes and other
• Urinary tract infections
Mental Health and Breastfeeding Support services are also available through Blue CareOnDemand℠
- Doctors Care
When your doctor is not available and Blue CareOnDemand is not appropriate, choose this option for urgent and after-hours care. You can visit any Doctors Care location across the state for the same price as a primary care physician visit. This includes visits for injuries and illnesses that may be considered as regular doctor’s visits, afterhours visits and urgent care visits.

All members have access to three free sessions of their choice for
services such as:
• Financial counseling and planning
• Adult care resources
• College consultation resources
• Legal consultations and documents
