Priority Health - NEW Telehealth PCP Plan for 2021

The Telehealth PCP is a new plan that just launched in 2021 for Individual members. The plan offers virtual-first primary care coverage through our partner, Doctor on Demand®. However, by choosing this plan, members are assigned a PCP from Doctor on Demand. Any in-person care needed is referred back to the Priority Health HMO network.

Individuals can choose their own plan during open enrollment either through the marketplace, their agent or Priority Health directly.
