Health & Wellness Resouces

Prevention/Staying Well

This is a critically important time for UTSA, and we want to reinforce a community of care among our employees to support one another. Below are several resources to address physical and mental well-being that you can access during this challenging time. As always, contact HR Benefits at Ext. 4250 if you have questions about these resources.

This is fully covered ($0 copay) for UT SELECT BCBS members. MDLIVE lets you have a live consultation with an independently contracted, board-certified MDLIVE doctor 24 hours a day, seven days a week by online video, mobile app or phone. Even if you are not sick, we encourage everyone to activate your account now so that you can skip this step when you are actually sick and need to see a doctor soon. Watch this video to learn how to register and schedule an appointment.
