Florida BlueThis year and the challenges associated with facing a global pandemic have helped us to grow virtually savvy. Everything from grocery orders to family gatherings have gone virtual. Healthcare is no exception as many providers have begun to offer online options for their patients. Florida Blue helps individuals and families connect with the help they need when they need it. 

Virtual Care with Teladoc

In this digital age, there are more ways than ever before to get the help that you need. You may have access to Teladoc through the coverage provided by your *employer if Florida Blue is your provider.

Imagine 24/7 access to care that you need from the comfort of your home or wherever you are! Non-emergency illnesses such as earaches, colds, and sinus infections can easily be addressed by a doctor within minutes via your smartphone, computer, or iPad. 

It’s easy to get started with Teladoc. Simply create a Teladoc account, download the mobile app from the Apple App or Google Play stores, or call 800-TELADOC (835-2362) for assistance in creating a account. Then follow the prompts to schedule a visit with a Teladoc doctor or other medical expert by phone or video. A doctor will typically respond within about 10 minutes.

Saving Money With Florida Blue

Not only is virtual care safe and convenient, but it can also save you money. Many Florida Blue members have a $0 copay with Teladoc which costs a lot less than an emergency room visit.

COVID-19 has increased the need for and rise in the popularity of virtual care. However, the benefits of virtual care are: an increase in patient access, lower risk of contracting diseases and illnesses, and a decrease in health care costs.
