    Register now for Teladoc and RediMD! Get non-emergency medical and mental health care, without leaving home.

    If the last thing you want to do right now is head to the doctor, we get it. Studies show 40% of Americans have recently delayed medical care because of COVID-19. Your TRS-ActiveCare health plan includes TRS Virtual Health powered by Teladoc® and RediMDTM, so you can be seen by a board-certified doctor or therapist when you need it, without leaving home or school.

    Whether you have a cold, allergies, anxiety, or another non-urgent medical or mental health condition, you can be seen online or over the phone. You can even have a prescription sent straight to your pharmacy.

    Learn more about specific conditions treated by Teladoc and RediMD on the TRS-ActiveCare website. Keep in mind some Primary Care Providers (PCPs) also offer telemedicine. Check with your doctor to see if virtual appointments are available.
