When the world was forced to pivot due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a silver lining emerged: we realized the value of meeting with doctors and receiving healthcare online.

Over the past few years, telemedicine services have become a popular alternative to meeting with a doctor. Telemedicine offers an accessible, convenient, and safe way to diagnose and treat many common illnesses and symptoms on a video call or phone call.

And when you’re traveling, telemedicine can offer the peace of mind you need.

Getting sick while traveling is the last thing anyone wants. Not only can it hamper your fun, but it can be a real challenge to find an affordable and trustworthy doctor for yourself or your children.

With telemedicine, you can get the care you need while you’re on the road. No more cutting a trip short so you can get in to see your doctor — telemedicine means your health care team travels with you wherever you go.

Here’s how telemedicine can keep you and your whole family healthy and stress-free while traveling.

Telemedicine Services: Pediatric Care Anywhere

When you’re a myCallADoc member, you get a doctor on demand for both you and your children.

There’s little more stressful than dealing with a sick little one while traveling. With myCallADoc, you don’t have to cancel your trip to see a doctor you trust. We’re available 24/7, 365 days a year to take care of your child.

You can talk to your doctor within minutes — whether you’re on a road trip or a cruise ship. Our pediatricians can virtually diagnose and treat colds, flu, fevers, digestive issues, and more. We can even help if your child is suffering from insect bites or having a mild allergic reaction to something in their new environment.

Plus, a telemedicine consult means you don’t have to cancel all the fun activities you’ve planned to haul your kids into the doctor’s office. And you don’t have to pay for a babysitter to care for your other children while you take your sick child to the doctor.

Telemedicine means you can keep your itinerary on track and provide the best care for your children while traveling.

If your children are old enough to travel on their own, you might find yourself worried about them venturing out on their own. MyCallADoc eases at least one of your concerns: your kids are covered under your myCallADoc plan even when they travel or are away at college. You can rest easy knowing they’ll get the care they need wherever they roam.

Telemedicine Benefits: Doctors Seniors Can Trust  

No matter where you are in the world, your team of myCallADoc doctors is there with you. Telemedicine makes traveling safer for seniors and people with complicated medical histories.

If you get sick while on the road, you might not know where to find a doctor — let alone one you can really trust. You might also have a hard time finding a doctor who can see you on short notice. And even if you have insurance, it can be hard to find someone who accepts your plan while you’re out of state.

Being a myCallADoc member means traveling with the security of knowing your health is in good hands. Our doctors are board certified with an average of 15 years of experience. They’ve gone through extensive background checks through the American Medical Association (AMA) before joining our team.

If you know your immune system is at risk, you might be concerned about catching something in a busy doctor’s office or waiting room. Telemedicine offers a risk-free way to talk to a doctor and get the care you need.

If you’re a retiree seeing the world, you can rest assured knowing the medical team you trust will be there to give you advice based on your medical history. No need to stress about finding a doctor covered by your insurance or scheduling a visit when you’re miles away from home. MyCallADoc gives you coverage from anywhere!

Telemedicine Costs: Affordable Healthcare for Freelancers

For many Americans, telemedicine is a more affordable option for health care than health insurance. Many health insurance plans have loopholes, exclusions, and high deductibles that limit how much coverage you qualify for and may not be affordable for every family.

Even with a health insurance plan, your copays might be so high you decide to skip the doctor’s visit when you need it. And if you’re traveling out of your home state while you work, you’re even more at risk of paying a high doctor’s bill for seeing someone out of network.

If you’re a freelancer or gig worker, you might be paying for health insurance out of pocket or from your state’s healthcare marketplace. Or you might not have health insurance at all.

Don’t let cost prevent you from getting the healthcare you need. MyCallADoc offers affordable telemedicine care for freelancers and gig workers — both with and without health insurance.

You don’t have to take time off work to see a doctor or cut your remote work trip short. You can squeeze a phone or video call into your workday without skipping a beat.

If you’re not feeling well enough to drive, no problem. You don’t have to ask a friend to drive you or pay for a Lyft or Uber. You can talk to an ENT, Allergy Specialist, Dermatologist, or General Medicine doctor within minutes, all from your phone, laptop, or iPad.

MyCallADoc makes the freelancer dream of working from anywhere even better. You can feel free to work from anywhere in the world knowing you’re protected with a healthcare team you trust.
