In partner with Teladoc, Nippon Life Benefits offers a telehealth service to our members who enroll medical coverage. This service provides you the access to the national network of U.S. board-certified, state-licensed physicians for non-emergency medical issues via phone call or online video consultations to receive medical advice, diagnoses and basic prescription medications from wherever you happen to be.
When you feel unwell, simply log in to your account at www.teladoc.com and request a visit with a doctor with a method you like - either via phone call or video call. Talk to the doctor during the visit. If medically necessary, a prescription will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice, so that you can receive the treatment you need in a timely, expedient manner. You don’t need to submit any claim forms for the visit. It’s that easy.
