Q:What is Amwell?

Our member Gayle Lassen explains it best: “Amwell is incredibly easy and efficient. The best way to describe it is to say that it's FaceTime with a doctor.”

Amwell is a faster, easier way to see a doctor. You can have video visits with a doctor anytime. It's easy to use, private, and secure. It’s free to enroll, and the cost per visit is $5 for most WEA Trust members. Click here for more detailed pricing information.

Amwell offers:

  • Your choice of trusted, U.S. board-certified doctors licensed in Wisconsin

  • Real-time video visits using the web or mobile app

  • Consultation, diagnosis and even prescriptions (when appropriate)

Amwell is perfect when your doctor’s office is closed, you’re too sick or busy to see someone in person, or even when you’re traveling.

Q:When would I use Amwell?

Great times to use Amwell include:

  • You should probably see a doctor but can’t fit it into your schedule.

  • Your doctor’s office is closed.

  • You have children at home and don’t want to bring them with you.

  • It's difficult for you to get a doctor's appointment.

  • You're on business travel and stuck in a hotel room.

Amwell is not meant to take the place of the relationship between you and your primary care physician (PCP). Still go to your PCP to treat chronic conditions like diabetes or heart disease. If it’s an emergency, always call 9-1-1. 

Q:How do I sign-up?

 

You can sign up on 3 different platforms:

1. Download the iOS or Android app by searching “Amwell.”

Follow the sign-up prompts on your chosen platform. Enter “trust” as the Service Key, and have your WEA Trust ID card handy to enter your health plan information.

Do you think you have been incorrectly charged for a video visit? Contact the Amwell customer service number 855-818-3627 to resolve this issue.

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

You could be charged more than $5 for your doctor video visit for one of two reasons:

  1. You are not on the Essential Health Plan. State Health Plan, WEA-MedPlus, and Essential Qualified Plan members may have different cost sharing options.
  2. You were incorrectly charged. Most often, this happens because the Service Key “trust” or your WEA Trust ID number was not entered when you signed up. If this issue occurs, please contact Amwell’s customer service team at 855-818-3627.

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

Double check that the name you use to sign up for Amwell is entered EXACTLY as it appears on your ID card. This includes the spacing between hyphenated last names.


 

Q:How do I add my spouse?

Your spouse should create a separate account to enroll. Your spouse also needs to enter TRUST as the Service Key to guarantee WEA Trust cost savings.

Q:What do I do if I have a child over 18 who is still on my health insurance?

They should enroll as an adult and create their own separate account. Your child also needs to enter TRUST as the Service Key to guarantee WEA Trust cost savings.

Q:How do I add a child to my account?

Parents and guardians can add their children who are under age 18 to their account and have doctor visits on their behalf.  Enroll yourself first and then add your child or dependent to your account.

On the web: login, go to My Account -> My Profile -> My Children and select “Add” to enter the appropriate information.

On a mobile device: login, then go to More (at the bottom of the app screen) -> My Children and select “Add Child” to enter the appropriate information.

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

Some WEA Trust members who have an Essential Qualified or State Health Plan receive this error message when they sign up. Ignore the message and continue signing up. You will be charged the correct amount ($39) when you have a doctor visit.

We also recommend double checking that the name you use to sign up for Amwell is entered EXACTLY as it appears on your ID card. This includes the spacing between hyphenated last names.
