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 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!
