Florida Blue Individual Plans Now Include Teladoc
Beginning August 1, 2019, Florida Blue individual plans for Under 65 members now include Telemedicine as a Standard Benefit. Telemedicine services are covered at the E-Office Visit PCP cost share (review your policy for details). Teladoc is the designated provider for this new benefit from Florida Blue.
Through Teladoc, Florida Blue members can speak with U.S. board-certified doctors 24/7/365 via phone or online video for on-demand or scheduled visits. Teladoc doctors can diagnose, treat, and when medically necessary, prescribe medications during virtual visits. The most common diagnoses include upper respiratory infection, bronchitis, cold, urinary tract infections, and flu.
Benefits to Florida Blue Members include:
Little to no wait time to see a doctor (average wait time is 10 minutes)
Care away from home (see a doctor anytime, anywhere, even on vacation!)
Lower costs (a telemedicine visit costs less than a visit to an urgent care or emergency room)
Imagine the time you can save in traffic and in waiting rooms, not to mention the cost savings. This benefit is great if you have children and need to see Teladoc due to an ear infection, sinus infection, or other upper respiratory infection.
PLUS, Teladoc was recently awarded the J.D. Powers 2019 award for Highest Telehealth Satisfaction with Direct-to-Consumer Providers and Highest in Customer Service.
Now, take full advantage of your Florida Blue individual plan for Under 65 members - use your new Teladoc E-Office Visit benefit.
