Talkspace - Online Therapy

Talkspace is a virtual service that connects members with licensed mental health providers for counseling, therapy and medication support. All care is delivered through a private and secure digital platform (iOS/Android/Web), so members can send their personal therapists unlimited private text messages, anytime, or attend a video appointment, from anywhere. Therapists message no less than twice per day via text, voice, or video. Talkspace has many options— including self-help tools and education—to support the needs of adults, teens, and couples. 

UniCare members can access therapy virtually through text, audio, and video sessions anytime using Talkspace. For more information and to access care via Talkspace, visit talkspace.com/beaconhealthoptions.

LiveHealth Online – See A Doctor 24/7

Schedule a private video visit — a form of telehealth — with a doctor, licensed therapist, or psychiatrist. You can use a smartphone, tablet, or computer with video capability. (For Total Choice, PLUS, and Community Choice members only.)

Your UniCare plan includes benefits for LiveHealth Online. Copays range from $10-$20 depending on your plan. You must register with LiveHealth Online, which includes adding payment information to cover the cost of your copay. What you pay will be displayed as the final step before the visit is scheduled.

  • See a doctor 24/7. No appointment is needed and board-certified doctors are always available. If you need one, they'll even send a prescription to your pharmacy.
  • Visit a therapist in four days or less. Get help with anxiety, depression, grief, panic attacks, and other behavioral health conditions. Schedule online or call 888-548-3432 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.
  • Consult a psychiatrist within two weeks. If you're over 18, you can get support to help you manage a behavioral health condition. Schedule online or call 888-548-3432 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.
  • Talk to a doctor … in Spanish. Spanish-speaking doctors are available through LiveHealth Online's Cuidado Medico platform.

LiveHealth Online is easy to access from the Sydney Health app, at livehealthonline.com, or download the LiveHealth Online app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

TytoCare – At-Home Exam Kits For Better Telehealth

With the TytoCare Medical Exam Kit, you can send health readings to a LiveHealth Online doctor.

With these concrete readings, a doctor can easily diagnose and treat many common ailments.
