Two free virtual doctor visits

All Service Benefit Plan members get their first two telehealth visits for free.

Virtual doctor’s visits by Teladoc® are an easy way to connect with a board-certified doctor 24/7. Get care for minor injuries and illnesses, including dermatology services, and schedule ongoing mental health support.

We’re also adding nutritional counseling to our available telehealth services. We will cover all nutritional counseling visits in full for all members.
