Frequently Asked Questions
Why would I use CoMediCard if I already have my own health insurance?
There are a number of reasons CoMediCard is an important addition to your health care benefits. We think it is the most affordable way to immediately get in front of a licensed physician and receive a diagnosis without having to wait for an appointment, go to the emergency room or clinic. The service is 24/7 and allows you to address your health care problem at the onset rather than waiting until your health deteriorates. It includes a $0 Copayment for family medicine, dermatology and mental health including licensed therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists and unlimited visits.
The OPTUMRx Pharmacy card offers additional savings on a wide number of prescription drugs. So, when your medically-necessary prescription is called in, you’ll know in advance what the cost is.
The RealTimeChoices App is amazing. Even if you already have insurance, use the app to search for the services you need. For example, if it is time for your annual mammogram and you want to know the costs from local radiology clinics, RealTimeChoices will search that for you and advise of the lowest costs and/or co-payments for the radiology clinic. It searches local companies for you to assist you in determining the costs associated with services you need.

How does the mental health counseling work?
CoMediCard includes unlimited $0 co-pay mental health counseling. Pick your type of provider, from therapists and marriage counselors to psychologists and psychiatrists. Set up an initial consultation with your chosen provider and consult via video chat through the Teladoc app. You and your therapist will then decide on an ongoing treatment plan and set up recurring appointments. You retain the same counselor (if you wish) through the entire process for continuity. Psychiatrists may prescribe mental health medication if medically necessary.
How does dermatology work?
CoMediCard includes unlimited consultations with US licensed dermatologists. As you schedule an appointment through the Teladoc app, you will be asked to upload pictures of your condition. This helps the doctor determine the care you require in a virtual setting.
Can I get these benefits directly throgh Teladoc®?
CoMediCard’ s $0 co-pay and unlimited use subscription model is not available to consumers directly through Teladoc. Our partnership enables us to offer all these benefits to families at greatly reduced cost and includes OptumRx prescription discounts and Real Time Choices medical price transparency as well.
Does CoMediCard facilitate COVID-19 screening?
CoMediCard can help with COVID19 concerns. Teladoc physicians are trained to offer a COVID prescreen to all patients. Based on their medical expertise, they can advise if they believe an actual in person COVID test is required. This saves potentially unnecessary time spent and exposure to other people that may be ill.
