Telemedicine: Get Help When You Need It

Beginning January 2017, you will be able to visit with a doctor anytime, anywhere with our new telemedicine benefit. This new service is offered from MDLIVE2 through HIPAA-secure video, phone, and mobile app with 24/7 access to a U.S. board-certified and licensed primary care doctor who can treat non-emergency medical conditions such as:

  • Colds and flu
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Joint aches and pains
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Pink eye
  • Ear infections
  • And more

Using MDLIVE is a convenient option when it’s not possible to visit your doctor’s office, retail clinic, or urgent care center. Plus, it’s more cost-effective than visiting the ER for an illness that’s not an emergency.
