With medical coverage under Cigna, there are two Telehealth providers that are available to you. American Well (AmWell) and MD Live are both telehealth services that accept the Cigna medical insurance offered through the City. This service allows you to see a doctor by using your smartphone or video-enabled computer.
Due to the recent Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), the City of Frisco has decided to waive the cost of these virtual visits for the remainder of 2020.
Your cost is $0 Consult Fee with a Virtual Visit.
Take 10 minutes for Telemedicine! Familiarize yourself with the provider and access telehealth services through your MyCigna App or download the specific Amwell app or MD Live App. *If you download the specific apps, you will need to create an account and enter in your Cigna Member ID number.

Those on the Cigna Dental PPO plan can log into their www.mycigna.com account and connect with a licensed dentist 24/7. This is a $0 consult fee.
