At a Price You
Teladoc is a convenient and affordable alternative to costly urgent care and ER visits for non-emergency medical care. You also save the time spent driving to and sitting in a waiting room.
When you are talking with a Teladoc physician, and if in the doctor’s judgment you are not able to work for the next 24 hours, the doctor may grant your request for an Off-Work Note.
If you need to be off work for more than a 24- hour period, you will be directed to follow up with your Personal Physician. For other diagnoses and injuries you will need to see your Personal Physician for an Off-Work Note.
To receive the Off-Work Note, you will need to have access to a fax machine or the Internet. There is no additional cost to receive the Off-Work Note.
