SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Heal, the on-demand service for doctor house calls, announced today it is now in-network with Anthem Blue Cross of California, to provide many of its large group and small group PPO members with in-home care for the same rate as a traditional office visit. As the first major health insurance provider in California to partner with Heal, Anthem Blue Cross of California can now provide many large group and small group PPO plan members across Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco and Silicon Valley with unparalleled access to top physicians without ever leaving home.

Through the integration with many large group and small group PPO plan benefits, Heal further advances its mission of transforming the doctor-patient experience to one that is an easier, more convenient way to receive expert comprehensive medical care. Patients will no longer face the inefficiencies associated with traditional doctor's office visits, but instead will receive unhurried, quality medical care at home for the entire family, for the same out-of-pocket co-pay, in the privacy and comfort of their own homes and time schedules.

"Heal members and their families don't have to leave their home to see a doctor, and now by joining forces with Anthem Blue Cross of California, it won't cost them a cent more than a typical in-office visit," said Dr. Renee Dua, co-founder, Heal. "We are fundamentally transforming the ease and method in which people access quality, primary, preventative and urgent medical care and this integration underscores our vision to become the go-to on-demand medical source."

Many large group and small group Anthem Blue Cross of California PPO plan members can now take a photo of their insurance card and be eligible for services that include urgent, primary and preventative care without incurring additional costs, as well as free annual wellness exams. Typical co-pays range from $10 - $30 and Heal members will only pay that specified amount, instead of the $99 all-inclusive fee, when they receive a house call from their doctor through the app.

Heal is improving the broken American healthcare system by creating quick access to trusted, high-quality physicians and specialists. In this on-demand culture, there is an increasing need for immediate services, and now through Heal, licensed physicians are available seven days a week any time from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the click of a button. Physician services include, but are not limited to, annual physicals, blood tests and specialist recommendations. Seasonal in-home flu shots are now also available.    

Heal was co-founded by entrepreneur and mom of two Dr. Renee Dua, who has surrounded herself with a world-class team of health and technology experts to build and launch Heal.
