Many people work to improve themselves. At HCCUA, our goal is to improve Association services by educating and assisting our members, updating them on the products HCCUA offers, and provide a better understanding of the quality of the benefits.
One benefit HCCA has worked to improve is its telemedicine services, known as InteractiveMD. If you get the flu, catch a cold, have an unexpected allergy, sinus problem or non-emergency health concerns, telemedicine is ideal for when your Primary Care Physician is not available, after normal business hours, or when you are traveling and need medical advice.
InteractiveMD has introduced several new features that will help HCCUA members live a happier, healthier life. First and foremost, InteractiveMD has partnered with StatDoctors to provide members with access to the latest telemedicine technology. Members will be able to schedule a consultation and visit with a doctor from their Apple or Android smartphone. HCCUA will be sending you more information on these improvements to InteractiveMD in the near future. And if you haven’t used InteractiveMD yet, it is a good idea to register today!
To download the telemedicine app, just go to the Apple or Android App Store and search for “Stat Doctors”. Once you have entered the necessary information into the app (to help safeguard your privacy and make for a more effective visit), you’ll see the InteractiveMD logo and you’ll be on your way to a healthier you! Please note: Due to state restrictions, InteractiveMD can no longer offer no-cost consultations. Each consultation will cost $40, which is far less than the cost of a typical doctor’s office visit.
Telemedicine is only one of our many benefits at your disposal as an HCCUA member. HCCUA appreciates feedback from our members on which benefits you use and like the most, along with any suggestions to improve our services!
We would also like to remind you of our Entertainment Benefits which offer discounts to HCCUA members on dining, hotels, movies, shopping and travel! So visit our site hccua.org, log in and type in your zip code to find thousands of discounts in your area!
Happy that spring is here, we have included an article with your April eNewsletter on Effective Spring Cleaning Tips to help make your home a place of Zen. We have selected another appetizing recipe from The Food Network - Salmon with Brown Sugar and Mustard Glaze. Enjoy!
