All Justworks members and their dependents have Teladoc access included with their Aetna medical plans and UnitedHealthcare medical plans.
What is Teladoc?
Teladoc helps employees access on-demand health insurance anytime, from almost anywhere. Teladoc offers virtual health services, which allows you to speak to a physician via phone or video. That means a physician is always just a call, click or swipe away when they:
- Wake up at 2 a.m. with flu-like symptoms
- Get a scratchy throat at work but can't afford to leave
- Feel under the weather during a vacation, on a business trip, or away from home
How much does Teladoc cost?
Teladoc is free and included as part of the Justworks benefits package, through your Aetna and UnitedHealth care medical plans.
How can I sign-up for my membership?
To sign up for a Teladoc membership, please visit your Justworks Benefits Center and follow the instructions on the sign-up page. You will be able to sign up using your Aetna WID.
For UnitedHealthcare members, the option to enroll will not be in your Justworks Benefits Center. You will need to register directly through Teladoc here.
Can my family members sign-up for Teladoc?
Any dependent on your Aetna or UnitedHealthcare plans have access to Teladoc through Justworks. All they need is their member ID and they can follow the same sign-up process detailed above for each carrier.
How much do Teladoc consultations cost?
Teladoc takes UnitedHealthcare plans you have through Justworks and consultations will cost the same as the co-pays for your plan.
For Aetna, Teladoc will charge depending upon the type of plan you are enrolled in.
What are some common conditions Teladoc treats?
Teladoc functions best for common ailments such as cold and flu symptoms, sinus infections, allergies, and UTIs. Please do not call Teladoc if you have an emergency.
