Teladoc has arrived!

Posted on Aug 27, 2012

We are pleased to announce that effective May 1, 2012 Aetna launched a new service for fully insured* Alaska Aetna members called Teladoc!

The Teladoc system enables Alaska members to obtain consultations from a provider 24/7 via phone or online video. Consisting of a national network of board-certified physicians Teladoc providers are able to diagnose, treat, and even prescribe medications for members who are unable to visit their regular doctor for routine medical conditions like bronchitis, allergies, urinary tract infections, sore throat, etc. Not only is there a shorter wait time to receive care but the out-of-pocket expenses incurred from using Teladoc are significantly lower than costs associated with urgent care visits, or ER visits for non-emergency issues.

Members can use Teladoc from the convenience of their home!

Be sure to let your small Alaska groups know that members can now enjoy the ease and convenience of receiving medical assistance whenever and wherever they need it.

For more information visit www.teladoc.com/aetna, or call 1-855-Teladoc (1-855-835-2362), or your Total Benefit Solutions representative today!

*Medicare or Medicaid members are not eligible for this service.
