    Telehealth - Permanent Benefit

    Effective October 1, 2020, telephone, internet, or other virtual care consultations where a patient is not physically seen by their physician or other covered provider, is covered the same as if the service were rendered in the physician’s or provider’s office. Telephonic or other virtual care visits (other than the Teladoc services, which has its own benefit structure) are subject to the annual deductible and coinsurance benefits. The telehealth/telemedicine consultation must be diagnosis and treatment focused via a live discussion or video exchange with ongoing participation by the patient and the provider throughout the visit. Missed appointment charges are not covered and are excluded from Plan coverage.

    Virtual Care Access During COVID-19 Emergency

    With the COVID-19 virus spreading through our communities, one of the top concerns is to not overwhelm our health care systems and saving space for the folks that are most vulnerable and who will be hit hardest by this virus. Per the CDC guidelines, if you are feeling sick, please call your doctor or urgent care center first. Another way we can help is to use a service like Teladoc. This also saves you and the Plan money as there is no cost to you for using Teladoc and a reduced cost to the plan compared with an urgent care or ER visit. For more detailed information on how to get started with Teledoc and to read the Teledoc FAQ, please use the Documents Tab, Health & Welfare, and look under Related Information - COVID-19 or you can click on the link below:
