Through CirrusMD, THA members will have access to Anytime-MD, a virtual care solution that addresses the need for real-time, easily accessible care.

Since the beginning of the partnership in 2017, thousands of THA members have used the Anytime-MD app for on-demand primary care, saving THA and its members an average of $398 per encounter while driving positive health outcomes and effective care coordination. Ongoing results of Anytime-MD include:

Working together, we drive better health and wellness outcomes for our members. We're pleased to continue our partnership with CirrusMD to deliver Anytime-MD, and know this service helps meet our members' needs for care and convenience."
