Additional Benefits

  • 24/7 Access to Telemedicine with Teladoc*

    Talk to a doctor any time—for a $0 copay. Connect with board-certified doctors through video chat or phone for prescriptions, help diagnosing and treating non-emergency conditions, and more. Access to dermatologists is also available.

    *Telemedicine isn’t a replacement for your Primary Care Provider (PCP). Your PCP should always be your first choice for care and for routine visits.

  • Urgent Care Center Network

    Get the care you need when you need it at an urgent care center in our network–no appointment needed. Urgent care centers offer late-night and weekend hours, often with faster service at a lower cost than the Emergency Room (ER).

    Visit an in-network urgent care center to get help for non-emergency conditions like earache, upset stomach, sprains, stitches, and more.
