Adults: allergies, cold and flu, ear infections, fever, headache, joint aches and pains, nausea and vomiting, pink eye, rashes, sinus infections, sunburn, urinary tract infections*.
Telemedicine covers Behavioral Health, too:
In addition to anytime, anywhere access to medical doctors, you can also consult with a psychiatrist or choose from a variety of licensed therapists from the privacy of your own home. You can even schedule recurring appointments to establish an ongoing relationship with one therapist.
Don't wait until you need it, Here are easy ways to activate telemedicine today. (Must be an active Univera subscriber to take advantage of this program at zero cost to you.)
