American Well announced today that its clinical partner, Online Care Group, is open and available for telehealth visits in Texas, following the historic signing of Bill SB107 into law by Governor Abbott on May 27. This bill embraces telehealth, holding medical professionals using telehealth to the same standard of care as those in a traditional medical practice and paving the way for more expansive use of high-quality telehealth services.
Six million Texas residents now have access to medical professionals via American Well’s telehealth services through their health plans and employers. Health systems working with American Well can offer primary care and specialty care visits – such as behavioral health and breastfeeding support – to new patients.
Additionally any of the nearly 30 million Texas residents can now see a doctor on Amwell®, the #1 most downloaded video telehealth app, for an on-demand or scheduled visit 24/7/365.
