Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use Wellness Shield even if I already have insurance?
A discount plan can help reduce your out-of-pocket expenses and stretch your dollar so you reach your maximums more slowly. Our telemedicine product for example is completely free to use. Compare that to what you would pay visiting the Emergency Room or Urgent Care facility.
You may also use the plan for services not covered by your insurance plan. For example, many people have medical insurance, but do not have dental and vision coverage. Please remember that our plans are NOT insurance and may offer discounts on many services not included in traditional indemnity plans.
Do I have to sign a contract?
No. You have the option to cancel your membership at any time by logging in to your Member Account and choosing to cancel. You can also call our toll-free customer service number and we would be happy to assist you as well.
Note: Memberships are monthly and cancellations will be effective at the end of the current billing period.
How do I speak with a Doctor?
You can talk or video conference with a Doctor by logging in to the Teladoc app and requesting a consult right from your phone or tablet. If you prefer, you can also just call their toll-free 1-800 number.
Watch this video to see how easy a video consult is while using the app.
How much will I save?
Your exact savings of course will vary by how often each Member uses the service, however consider that our Telemedicine product is completely free to use.
Compare that to what you or your family would pay to visit the Emergency Room, Urgent Care facility or even your Primary Care Physician. Then factor the convenience and time saved by speaking to a Doctor any time of the day and any where you happen to be.
Is my personal information protected?
