The Importance of Having 24/7 Physician Care
October 9, 2019
In the middle of the night, if your child is sick or your daughter has a rash, don’t consult Dr. Google. With an Alliance Value Plan membership, you can talk to a licensed, board-certified doctor through Teladoc without any copay, who can diagnose and prescribe common remedies in many states.

When to Use Teledoc
Teladoc Health isn’t here to replace your regular physician, but to make sure you always have access to a physician when you need one. If your primary physician isn’t available, if you’re away on vacation or a business trip, or if it’s after normal hours of operation, Teladoc can often provide the physician services you need.
Use Teladoc for conditions like sinus infections, cold or flu, bronchitis, pink eye, allergies, sore throat, and urinary tract infections — conditions that you shouldn’t have to wait for your primary doctor to treat. You can also reach out to Teladoc for second opinions.
Teladoc is included with the Alliance Value Plan. It’s one of many ways Alliance family membership benefits help you and your family receive improve your quality of life while saving money.
