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 respiratory infections
  • Sinus infections
  • Pinkeye
  • Ear infections
  • Allergies
  • Migraines
  • Rashes and other skin irritations
  • Urinary tract infections

And more!

Mental Health and Breastfeeding Support services are also available through Blue CareOnDemand.

Cost of Blue CareOnDemand visits varies by visit type and provider selected, and is subject to plan benefits. 

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.
