What is Teladoc?

Before there’s a medical emergency, you can use Teladoc, a modern-day house call. Board-certified physicians are available anytime, anywhere for personalized, secure web or phone-based consultations. Teladoc connects you with a doctor licensed in your state or province when you request a visit.

Members can use 24/7 Physician Consultations:

  • For common, acute conditions that can be treated without a face-to-face visit (may include sinus problems, respiratory infections, allergies, flu symptoms, rashes)
  • From anywhere – at home, at work, or on the road
  • After hours – evenings, weekends, or holidays
  • When they cannot reach their primary care physician
