What’s the easiest way to treat cold and flu this season?

P&J is proud to offer Teladoc to all employees and dependents enrolled in the medical plan. Teladoc is a national network of board-certified physicians providing telephonic consultations 24/7, and it’s accessible at no cost to employees and dependents enrolled in the medical plan. If you’re not in the medical plan, you can still use this convenient service for a $45 fee!

Teladoc

Teladoc doctors are U.S. board certified in Internal Medicine, Family Practice, or Pediatrics. They average 15 years practice experience, are licensed in your state, and incorporate Teladoc into their day-to-day practice as a way to provide people with convenient access to quality medical care.

Teladoc does not replace your primary care physician. Teladoc should be used when you need immediate care for non-emergency medical issues. It’s an affordable, convenient alternative to Urgent Care and ER visits.

You can talk with a Teladoc doctor via a phone consult, video consult within the secure member portal, or video consult within the Teladoc mobile app. To request a consult, visit the Teladoc website, log into your account and click “Request a Consult”. You can also call Teladoc to request a consult by phone, or request a consult through the Teladoc mobile app.

Teladoc doctors can prescribe short term medication for a wide range of conditions when medically appropriate. Teladoc doctors do not prescribe substances controlled by the DEA, nontherapeutic and/or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential abuse. When you go to your pharmacy of choice to pick up the prescription, you may use your health/prescription insurance card to help pay for the medication. You will be responsible for the co-pay based on the type of medication and your plan benefits.

So if you get the sniffles this season, you can avoid going to a doctor’s office by calling Teledoc!
