Telehealth is a convenient option for those times when you can’t get in to see your provider quickly enough. From the comfort of your home, you can get quick medical advice that can prevent your condition from getting worse. There is no cost to use telehealth and it removes the stress of needing transportation to and from the doctor’s office.
You can use telehealth for many common issues and follow-up appointments such as colds, sinus infections, allergies, rashes, urinary tract infections, medication follow-ups and more. Your provider can tell you if an in-person visit is needed or if you can have a telehealth visit.
Your primary care provider (PCP) or behavioral health provider may offer telehealth services on your phone or computer. You can talk to your provider from wherever you are. Please check with your provider for available options and to learn more.
If your provider doesn’t offer telehealth, or has limited hours, you may use Teladoc® to speak to a board-certified provider 24/7. Skip the trip and the wait. Save money, time and worry when you use Teladoc. You and your family can talk to a Teladoc provider by phone or video from wherever you are.

What Can I Expect From a Teladoc Visit?
- Most general medical visits last about 15 minutes or less. Most behavioral health visits last 45 minutes, just like an in-person therapy visit. You can get medical advice, diagnosis and even prescriptions, when needed.
- If a prescription is needed for your issue, you can pick up the medication at your local pharmacy or any network pharmacy that you choose.
- If you need more care, the provider will ask you to follow up with your PCP.
