COVID-19 is most likely what's on your mind today. You're staying home and not going out because that's what you've been asked to do.
But what if you’ve recently developed a cough or a rash on your arm? What if you’re anxious about what is going on and need to speak to an expert? You don’t want to be too quick to visit urgent care or the emergency room.
A great place to begin is by using the telehealth benefit that is part of your Concordia Health Plan option. Telehealth lets you access health care and counseling via computer, smartphone or tablet and is a good solution to getting a diagnosis and treatment plan for common illnesses, such as:
- Stress, anxiety, and other emotional support
- Skin conditions
All telehealth providers are board certified, just like the doctors you see in person. A telehealth doctor can even order prescriptions for you.
In this time of social distancing, the demand for telehealth is at an all-time high. To avoid long wait times, you can schedule an appointment with a telehealth provider.
You have a benefit that lets you get a diagnosis, support and medicine without leaving home! No driving when you don’t feel well, no crowded waiting rooms, no people! If you’ve never used your telehealth benefit, now is the time.
