Ask a Doctor – TeleMedicine Medical Help

Do you want to avoid making another trip to the doctor’s office only to ask a few simple questions? 

Is the travel time, cost of gas, waiting, loss of wages, and then the co pay charges of $25.00 or more aggravating you?

Are you asking, “why can’t this be done by phone to save me time and money?”  Isn’t there a technology solution that makes it easier?

“Ask a Doctor” is a program from LifeSource Direct (a Teladoc service from LifeCard Plans) that helps make your doctor visits cost less money and time.  “Ask a Doctor” can get you basic medical service when you need it at a reduced cost – no travel expenses, or loss of wages for trips to a doctor’s office during your working hours.
