Teladoc Behavioral Health News

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed all of our lives in ways we may never have imagined. Today’s shelter-in-place mandates, social distancing, and disruptions to routines may cause mental health issues to arise or become more acute. Taking care of your mental health is as important as exercising and eating right.

Because of this, affiliate employees enrolled in a Blue Shield plan through Collective Health can use Teladoc’s behavioral health services at no cost to themselves through May 31, 2020.

Testing through an in-network provider is covered with a $0 copay under our medical plans. Employees going to out-of-network providers would be responsible for any balance of the cost over the approved amount.
