The City of Chattanooga is proud to offer Teladoc to all employees and dependents enrolled in the medical plan. Teladoc is 24/7/365 access to a doctor or therapist by phone when your primary care physician is not available, and you have a condition when you would consider using urgent care.
All Teladoc doctors are practicing primary care physicians, pediatricians, and family medicine physicians who average 15 years experience and are U.S. board-certified and licensed in your state.
Teladoc does not replace your primary care physician. Teladoc should be used when you need immediate care for non-emergent medical issues. It is an affordable, convenient alternative to urgent care and ER visits.
Prescriptions. Teladoc doctors can prescribe short term medication for a wide range of conditions when medically appropriate. Teladoc doctors do not prescribe substances controlled by the DEA, non therapeutic and/or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential abuse. When you go to your pharmacy of choice to pick up the prescription, you may use your health/prescription insurance card to help pay for the medication. You will be responsible for the co-pay based on the type of medication and your plan benefits.
Teladoc is most frequently used to treat conditions like:
Urgent Care 24/7 (previously PhysicianNow)
Mental Health Care (including psychology/psychiatry)
