Spira Care is taking extra steps for members during COVID-19.

We know your employees and their families are still feeling the effects of the pandemic. So, Spira Care is finding innovative ways to reach them and help by enhancing its physical and behavioral health offerings to meet members’ changing needs.

New ways to access care for members

No matter which of the eight Spira Care Centers your employees choose, they’ll find more ways to connect with care. Spira Care has expanded its telehealth services so members can meet with their primary care physicians, behavioral health consultants and other providers however they’re most comfortable—in person, over the phone or virtually.

Behavioral health

The effects of COVID-19 aren’t just physical. Isolation and loneliness can make issues like substance use, depression and anxiety worse. Because physical and behavioral health go together, Spira Care Centers offer behavioral health consultations on-site. Spira Care will provide regular updates on COVID-19 here.
