Teladoc app offers convenient access to quality medical care when traveling

July 02, 2019

Employees with medical coverage through the Board of Pensions can consult with U.S.-certified doctors anytime, anywhere, with Teladoc.*

If your summertime plans include overnight travel, don’t forget to pack these essentials for a safe, healthy trip:

  1. insect repellent, to protect against disease-carrying mosquitoes and ticks
  2. enough medications for each day you’ll be away, plus two additional days (along with copies of your prescriptions)
  3. sunglasses with lenses that protect against the sun
  4. broad spectrum sunscreen, with at least SPF 15
  5. Teladoc mobile app, for 24/7 access to quality care wherever you are

Teladoc doctors can diagnose and treat many acute medical conditions, such as allergies, colds, pink eye, poison ivy, sprains, and more — for less than the cost of an office visit. With the Teladoc mobile app, you can schedule a consult with a Teladoc doctor, manage your medical history, or send a prescription to the nearest pharmacy – all from the palm of your hand. To download the free app, open the iOS app store or Google Play and search for Teladoc.
