Teladoc provides eligible members with access to primary care providers, family doctors, therapists and psychiatrists who are ready to help you from wherever you are. We offer a wide range of services, including:

Adults 18+ can consult with a primary care provider for routine checkups, ongoing wellness needs, referrals and more.
Please note: Primary care visits are not available for Aetna Out of Area, Banner, Texas Health and Baptist St. Vincent members.

You should not use Teladoc if you are experiencing a medical emergency. In the event of a medical emergency, please call 911.
Our care is provided by a network of U.S. board-certified internists, family doctors, dermatologists, psychiatrists, and pediatricians licensed to practice medicine in the U.S. We also have board-certified primary care physicians, dermatologists, psychiatrists and licensed therapists who can provide specialty care. Our global network of leading medical specialists can advise on complex conditions, treatment plans and surgeries.
The U.S. state-licensed doctors of Teladoc can resolve many non-emergency, common illnesses that are easily diagnosed over the phone or online video. All Teladoc doctors complete training in telehealth-specific protocols to ensure that appropriate standards of care are achieved for all visits that take place, and on average have over 15 years of experience.
Only if you'd like! You can choose to use Teladoc only when you need immediate care for a non-emergency, routine medical issue. However, you can also establish a long-term relationship with a virtual primary care provider (PCP) with Primary360.
Yes, but Teladoc doesn't guarantee prescriptions. It's up to the doctor to recommend the best treatment. Teladoc doctors don't issue prescriptions for substances controlled by the DEA, non-therapeutic and/or certain other drugs that may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. Also, non-therapeutic drugs, such as Viagra and Cialis, aren't prescribed by Teladoc doctors.
You should not use Teladoc if you are experiencing a medical emergency. In the event of a medical emergency, please call 911. It's also not meant for:
Cancer or other complex conditions

Teladoc and your family
Yes. Bank of America medical plan members can use Teladoc for family members who are covered on their Bank of America employee medical plan.
Eligible members can connect with a pediatrician 24/7 to help their children with non-emergency conditions like cold & flu, allergies, pink eye, stomachache and more. Primary 360 is available to individuals 18+, and Teladoc mental health services are available to children 13+.
A parent, guardian or authorized consenter must request a visit for minor dependents (age 18 and under). Minor dependents can't request a visit directly.
An authorized consenter is an individual who has previously been assigned to speak with a doctor on the child's behalf when the parents or guardians are absent, like a grandparent or nanny. The authorized consenter must be appointed by a parent or guardian prior to any visit.
Log on to your Teladoc account and click "My Family." For support, call Teladoc at 855-Teladoc (855-835-2362). Representatives are available 24/7.
Your child's involvement is at the discretion of the doctor and the parent, guardian or authorized consenter. However, the child must be present during the visit. In all cases, doctors will speak directly with the parent, guardian or authorized consenter.

Primary360 visits require an additional health survey and/or medical information.

Yes, when setting up your Teladoc account, you can provide your physician's contact information. A record of your Teladoc visit can be faxed to your physician.
Yes. The state of Idaho allows video visits only. Arkansas and Delaware require the first visit be completed by video. All other states allow for both phone and video visits.
Video visits are available from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. local time, seven days a week. You can talk to doctors by phone 24/7, 365 days a year.
You may use your work computer to register and request a visit. For privacy and security reasons, you may not conduct a video visit from your work computer. If you choose to have a video visit, you must do so from your personal computer.
Yes. When you request a visit, you indicate which state you will be in during your visit. No matter which state you're in, a doctor licensed in that state will perform the visit. Teladoc is not available internationally.
Fees and payments
The cost of a Teladoc visit varies, depending on the type of care you are requesting and your health plan. Please refer to your welcome letter or call 855-Teladoc (855-835-2362) if you wish to confirm pricing prior to requesting a visit.
Teladoc accepts all major credit cards and PayPal. If you have a visit fee, you will be shown the amount prior to confirming your visit request. For eligible plans, payments can be made with your health savings account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA) or health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) card.

Yes, your Teladoc consult is a reimbursable medical expense under your Bank of America healthcare account.
Benefit Solutions, Bank of America's healthcare account provider, will make every effort to auto-verify your Teladoc expense.

If documentation is required, you can use your healthcare provider's explanation of benefits (EOB).

Visit Teladoc.com/Primary360 to schedule a visit with a primary care provider (PCP) or an annual exam. You'll be able to select the PCP of your choice, submit necessary health information and schedule a visit on your time.
Primary360 offers convenient access to high-quality primary care that revolves around you—your lifestyle, your needs and your health. It starts by selecting your virtual primary care provider (PCP) and building an ongoing relationship with them and your dedicated Care Team of registered nurses and care coordinators. From the annual checkup to ongoing wellness needs, members have access to trusted medical care and personalized support.
Primary360 is available to adults—ages 18 years and older—enrolled in a national Bank of America medical plan. Primary360 is ideal for those who don’t currently have a PCP or don’t see their PCP often.
(Note that Primary360 is not available to those on an Aetna Out of Area, Banner, Texas Health, and Baptist St. Vincent
plan. Only the General Medical program can be accessed by residents of Puerto Rico.)
Once you schedule a visit, you'll receive a free blood pressure kit by mail. Prior to your visit, your chosen PCP will review the information provided through your Primary360 assessment. During the visit, your PCP will check your vitals with the blood pressure kit mailed to you and assess your body mass index by reviewing your height and weight. You'll also have an in-depth discussion about your personal and family medical history to make sure you're in good health.
Video visits are preferred, and you'll also have the ability to upload images of anything you'd like the doctor to specifically look at. Your PCP may order labs, radiology or a referral to a specialist as clinically appropriate. Your dedicated Care Team will work with you to find an in-network lab or specialist who meets your preferences and is conveniently located. Results will be reviewed with you by your provider, incorporated into your Care Plan and uploaded to your Teladoc account.
After your visit, your PCP and Care Team will create a personalized Care Plan that will always be accessible through your Teladoc account.
Your PCP can order lab work, imaging studies, referrals and vaccinations. If needed, your Care Team will assist you in connecting to an in-network lab or facility of your choice. Results will be reviewed with you by your provider, incorporated in your Care Plan and uploaded to your Teladoc account.
Yes, PCPs can prescribe new medications as clinically necessary and appropriate and can prescribe refills for maintenance medications for a full year. However, they don't prescribe opioids, narcotics and other DEA-controlled substances.
If you're in need of care right away, you can request a General Medical visit to talk to a doctor 24/7 for non-emergency conditions like cold and flu, sinus infections, allergies and more.
You should choose General Medical when you want to talk to a doctor in minutes, by phone, video or mobile app about non-emergency health issues.
Before each visit, the doctor will review your medical history with a specific focus on chronic illnesses, current medications, allergies and any changes in your medical condition. You can update your medical history at any time through your Teladoc profile.

You can schedule a visit with a licensed therapist or a board-certified psychiatrist for help managing medications or more serious diagnoses.
You can schedule a Mental Health visit online or through the Teladoc app. Choose a therapist or psychiatrist who fits your needs and select a time (or times) that work best for you. Your chosen mental health provider will work on coordinating the schedule with you through your Teladoc account.
Therapists and psychiatrists are available for appointments seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. local time, from wherever you are most comfortable by phone or video.
Please note: Before your visit, you will be asked to complete a brief mental health questionnaire to help your therapist or psychiatrist understand where you're at and how you're feeling.
You will have a conversation with your chosen mental health professional just as if you were at their office in person. They're here to make you feel comfortable and heard.
Only psychiatrists can prescribe medications. Teladoc psychiatrists can't prescribe any controlled substances or medications for the treatment of bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. These medications require in-person care and ongoing monitoring. You can use Teladoc Mental Health services for therapy, guidance or to obtain other medications. If you're currently taking any of the above drugs, refills can't be prescribed.
Yes. You can see the same mental health provider throughout your treatment.
