Virtual Connect

Senior couple looking at laptop screenEffective April 1, 2022, for the 51+ fully insured market, we will offer a mix of HSA and non-HSA plans for BlueHPN. To complement BlueHPN and help members navigate the new network, a $0 virtual care benefit enhancement will be included on all non-HSA plans*.

This benefit provides members with the convenience of $0 preventive care, PCP visits and mental health visits through CloseKnit, a virtual first primary care practice. With CloseKnit, members who are 18 or older will be able to access a wide variety of care services and get connected to in-person or specialty care when needed—all from an easy-to-use app.

CloseKnit care teams treat most illnesses virtually, but can connect members with local, in-person care if needed through the CareFirst BlueHPN network or the Blue Cross Blue Shield National Doctor and Hospital Finder.

For more information and to register for CloseKnit, visit closeknithealth.com.

NOTE: Self-insured accounts can opt in to the virtual care benefit enhancement.



* HSA plan(s) will not have a $0 virtual care option. Members are responsible for 100% of the cost until they meet the deductible.
