If you’re traveling for the holidays, you can take a doctor with you no matter where you go in the United States.1 Our licensed doctors are available by web, phone2 or mobile app 24/7.

Simply register for telehealth from Tufts Health Plan, powered by Teladoc, with your complete medical history.  Then, you can get treatment for general medical, behavioral health or dermatology3 services whenever you need it.

  • General Medical: talk to a Teladoc doctor by web, phone, or mobile app in less than 10 minutes4 to treat nonemergency, general medical conditions, including: cold and flu symptoms, allergies, sinus infections, sore throats and more.
  • Behavioral Health: schedule a video appointment seven days a week for support with anxiety, depression and other behavioral health issues.
  • Dermatology (coming early 2019): contact a dermatologist through the web or mobile app for complex or ongoing skin conditions, such as infections, psoriasis, eczema, and acne. Teladoc dermatologists will respond with a treatment plan within two business days, which is much faster than the average 52-day wait time to see a dermatologist.5
  • Teladoc visits for general medical, behavioral health or dermatology services are the same cost as a PCP visit.6
