Questions & Assistance

Q:When would I use Maddy Virtual Care?

Great times to use Maddy Virtual Care include:

  • You can’t fit an appointment in your schedule.
  • Your doctor’s office is closed.
  • You have children at home and don’t want to bring them with you.
  • You're traveling.
  • You don't know whether you should go to urgent care or not.
  • Therapy appointments aren’t available in your city.

A virtual visit is not meant to replace the relationship between you and your primary care physician (PCP). Still go to your PCP to treat chronic conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease. If it’s an emergency, always call 9-1-1.

Q:What is a virtual visit like?

Most virtual doctor visits take about 10 minutes. Doctors can review your history, answer questions, diagnose, treat and even prescribe medication. Prescriptions will be sent to your pharmacy of choice. Medical virtual visits are typically on demand.

Therapy appointments with virtual therapists and psychologists are typically scheduled ahead of time and last for 45 minutes. The first session will assess your mental health care needs, and if appropriate, you can schedule recurring appointments with the same provider. Therapists and psychologists cannot prescribe medications.

Psychiatrists help manage your behavior health medication. Members can schedule a 45-minute visit with a psychiatrist of your choice. While these psychiatrists cannot prescribe controlled substances, they can coordinate care with you. A 15-minute follow-up appointment is also available to members, but they must be scheduled by a doctor, not the member.

Q:What's the difference between an $85 and $99 online therapy visit?

Mental health care providers include both masters-level and doctoral-level clinicians. Visits with masters-level therapists cost $85. Visits with doctoral-level psychologists cost $99. Both types of providers can treat common behavioral health conditions like anxiety and depression.

Members with copay plans will be responsible for a $0 or $5 copay for all virtual visits, depending on your health plan. Members with high deductible health plans will be responsible for the full cost of the visit until their deductible is met.

Q:What should I do if I was incorrectly charged for a video visit?

Our WEA Trust Virtual Visits Service powered by Amwell is now Maddy Virtual Care. If you used Maddy Virtual Care and believe you were incorrectly charged for a video visit, call 855.818.3627 to speak with customer service.

 

Important Note: The actual cost of your visit will be calculated immediately before your visit begins. For example, you may have a $0 copay, but it appears the cost for your scheduled therapy appointment is $99. Before you begin your visit, the service will check your eligibility in real time and adjust the cost of the visit accordingly. 

Q:What should I do if I get a message that my insurance cannot be verified?

If you are using Maddy Virtual Care, double-check that the name you used to sign up with is entered EXACTLY as it appears on your ID card. This includes the spacing between hyphenated last names.

During high-volume times, such as the first two weeks of January and July, you may receive this message even if you have entered all your account information correctly. You may continue with your visit and email MaddyVirtualCare@amwell.com to be reimbursed after the visit. 

If you continue to have this issue, please call WEA Trust’s Customer Service Team at 800.279.4000.
