Recently, the State Health Benefit Plan added a new enhancement to their plans called Telemedicine. Telemedicine is a way to access doctors and healthcare 24 hours a day through a computer, tablet or mobile device (with a webcam). Imagine… no emergency rooms, waiting lines or hassles. This enhancement to their plans can save you time, frustration and money.
We felt it was important to remind our employees that this feature is available. Please view this short Telemedicine video to see exactly what the plan is and how it works.
We hope this new feature to their plans can be of benefit to you and your family.
