When Should I Use Teladoc?
Teladoc should not be used as your PCP. This helpful and low-cost service can be used when your PCP is out or your issue is urgent, but not an emergency. Not sure if you need a provider or should go to the ER? Call CareSource24® Nurse Advice Line first. CareSource24 can help you decide that best course of action for your symptoms and can even transfer you to Teladoc. No need to make another call. Use the CareSource24 phone number found on the back of your CareSource member ID card.

What Can I Expect from a Teladoc Consultation?
- 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 primary care provider (PCP).
Have your CareSource member ID number ready when you call. You will need to answer a few questions about the reason for your call. A doctor will contact you, usually within 10 minutes.
Note: Teladoc should not be used for trauma, chest pain, shortness of breath, or the prescribing of DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) controlled substances.
