Benefit Funds Expand Teladoc Benefit to Include Behavioral Health Care
Effective May 1, the Benefit Funds have added behavioral or mental health care to our members’ Teladoc benefit. Now, members struggling with stress, anxiety, relationship or family problems, or work pressures can contact Teladoc, the telehealth and video conferencing service, and speak with a licensed professional who can help. If you have 1199SEIU patients who are suffering from these issues, refer them to Teladoc so they may connect with a counselor, therapist, psychologist or psychiatrist by phone, web or mobile app seven days a week. For more information about Teladoc, please visit www.1199SEIUBenefits.org/teladoc.
