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]
