What Is Telehealth?

Telehealth - powered by Teladoc® - is a convenient, affordable new way to access quality care for general medical and behavioral health services. Now you can connect with a U.S. board-certified doctor or therapist by web, phone, or mobile app. Connect from the comfort of home, during your lunch break, or while traveling throughout the country. 

You don’t have to worry about driving to a provider’s office and sitting in a waiting room. Instead, health care comes to you in a more relaxed setting. You can even get a prescription sent to your local pharmacy, when medically necessary.

Teladoc has performed more than one million telehealth visits with 95-percent member satisfaction.** 

Try it once—you’ll love it.
