News and information concerning the Division of Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness services that are impacted by COVID-19.
As a result of Governor Abbott’s executive order of April 27 (GA-18) which laid out the plan for the reopening of Texas, we have developed a three-phase return-to-campus plan informed by guidance from state and federal officials.

Get access to care 24 hours a day, seven days a week by online video, mobile app or phone.
Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp has temporarily reduced the copay for MD LIVE Inc Telehealth services to $0 beginning 3/19/2020, in an effort to facilitate access to medical care for all A&M Care members. MDLive Virtual Visits is a feature through the BCBS A&M Care Health Plans that lets you visit independently contracted MDLIVE board-certified doctors when you may need care or have medical questions. Plus, they may even write and send prescriptions to a nearby pharmacy (when appropriate).
You may want to have a virtual visit:
- Instead of going to the ER or urgent care for non-emergency visits
- If your doctor is booked
- While at home, work or on-the-go
This alternative provides safe and convenient care for 50+ non-emergency medical & behavioral health conditions 24/7/365, including the common cold and flu, ear problems, headaches, nausea and more.
