How to Use This Benefit
How does it work?
First, you must call 1-833-814-8590 or go online to activate your Telemedicine benefit.
Telemedicine gives you access to board-certified doctors with more than 15 years of experience.
What services are available?
Telemedicine doctors can diagnose and treat a number of health issues, including allergies, asthma, the flu, cold, arthritis, backaches, joint pain, and much more. Prescriptions can be phoned in to whatever pharmacy is most convenient for you. While the call with the doctor is free, you will be responsible for the cost of any medications you need, or for any doctors visits you may need for situations an MDLIVE doctor can’t solve over the phone.
Is my family covered?
Yes. Our telemedicine benefit is not for only our hard-working drivers, but for their families as well.
