Doctor visit is 2013 State Fair giveaway


The Minnesota State Fair begins today, and one of the key features over the years has been the product giveaway. Remember when the big thing was to pick up a free yardstick?

This year Blue Cross and BlueShield of Minnesota will be giving away something quite unusual – a free visit with a doctor.

Fairgoers can get a voucher for what Blue Cross calls its “Online Care Anywhere” service. Between now and the end of November you’ll be able to use the voucher to consult with a doctor over the Internet. Dr. Peter Antall is medical director for Online Care Anywhere. He talked with KFAI’s Mike Fischbein. [Audio below]
