Starting May 1, 2017, if you or a family member is feeling sick or in pain and your own doctor is unavailable, you can get the care you need from the comfort of your home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your Fund is offering you this new benefit through Teladoc, a telehealth and video conferencing service. With Teladoc, you can get quality care in minutes—and save yourself a trip to an urgent care center or emergency room. Teladoc should not be used for emergency medical situations.
As of May 1, you can call Teladoc to:
- Speak with one of more than 3,600 board-certified doctors by phone or video, any time of the day or night
- Get diagnosis and recommended treatment for symptoms such as cold and flu, fever, sprains, backaches and rashes
- Get a prescription for medication, if necessary
- Share necessary information with your primary care doctor after your virtual visit
