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). Plus, you don’t need an appointment.

    Visit an in-network urgent care center to get help with non-emergency health issues like earache, upset stomach, and sprains; for wounds that need stitches; and more.
