In this issue, you will read about our partnership with EmblemHealth Dental, which, beginning April 1, will give National Benefit Fund members access to nearly twice as many dental providers. In May, we are launching a new service called Teladoc, which lets you reach a doctor when your own doctor is unavailable at any time of the day or night.
We have also included a story about member Christine Jensen, who used her Benefit Fund health coverage and workplace wellness programs to lose weight and get fit after a health scare. And if you have not yet filed your taxes, we remind you that it is not too late to take advantage of free tax preparation assistance.
When Your Own Doctor is Not Available, “Visit” with a Doctor Anytime, Anywhere with Your New Benefit
Why drag yourself to an urgent care center or wait hours in an emergency room when quality care is just a phone call or click away?
Starting May 1, you can access Teladoc, a service that connects you with a doctor by phone or online video 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You will receive your National Benefit Fund dental coverage through our new partnership with EmblemHealth Dental, expanding access to more than 7,000 dentists.
Thanks to a worksite wellness challenge, Christene Jensen lost weight and improved her health.
