Throughout the year, each geographic region in the U.S. has a greater risk of natural disasters such as blizzards, floods, forest fires, heat waves and storms. Now’s a good time to prepare our households for these and other emergencies. Here are seven ways to start:
Teladoc can quickly help if you have a non-emergency condition such as an insect or animal bite, upper respiratory illness or infection, sprain or strain, or other condition—including asthma, flu and migraine headache. Our certified physicians are available 24/7 anywhere you are in the U.S., even if you are displaced from your home. When medically necessary, the doctor can send a prescription to a nearby pharmacy. You can also share the results of your Teladoc visit with your primary care physician (PCP).
When updating your Teladoc profile, you can also add eligible dependents, list the PCP for each person and designate a preferred pharmacy using our convenient pharmacy finder. These updates can be made quickly and easily with the Teladoc app. If you don’t already have it, just download the app to all mobile devices in your household—its available for Apple and Android. You can even link your Kinsa® smart thermometer to it! And speaking of your Teladoc profile, go ahead and log in now while it’s fresh on your mind.
No matter the circumstances, you may be reassured to know that when tough times hit, the best in us usually rises to the occasion, and our communities come together to get through it together. Here’s wishing you the best this fall.
