It’s 6 p.m. the Saturday before Christmas when a stomach flu hits half of your household. What do you do? Plan member Carol Wellings called Teladoc, a telemedicine option available 24/7 to employees with medical coverage through the Board of Pensions.
“My husband was the first to get sick, and then after taking care of him for a day and a half, it was my turn,” said Carol. Luckily, she had already registered herself, her husband, and her two college-age children through the Teladoc website. And, she received 25 Call to Health points for registering when she completed the Teladoc Challenge.*
When she needed to use Teladoc services, Carol appreciated how easy and convenient it was. “All I had to do was dial the number, talk with a scheduler, then wait for a call back. A doctor called me within 20 minutes,” she reported.
She saved money, too. Since Carol and her family are enrolled in the PPO, she paid just a $10 copay for her consultation with a Teladoc physician.
“The Teladoc doctor sent a script for anti-nausea medication to our 24-hour pharmacy, so I could be ready for the Christmas holiday dinner at our house,” said Carol. “Teladoc to the rescue!”
