Trips to the emergency room can be costly if you have a minor injury or illness and you may not be able to get into see your Primary Care Provider right away. In this situation, you have three convenient options for care: MinuteClinic, Teladoc, and urgent care facilities.
The next time you or a covered family member needs healthcare, think MinuteClinic. If you are enrolled in a Sysco-sponsored national medical plan, you have access to no-cost/low-cost MinuteClinic services at CVS Pharmacy® locations and Target stores.
MinuteClinic nurse practitioners and physician assistants are available seven days a week to diagnose and treat common, non-emergency problems, such as:
If you need a prescription, your MinuteClinic provider will write one you can fill on the spot. Read this flyer for additional details.
MinuteClinic offers both walk-in and scheduled appointments every day. Some age and service restrictions apply to MinuteClinic services. Contact your Aetna Health Care Advocate at 1-833-361-0223 (TTY: 711) with questions. To locate a MinuteClinic close to you, visit CVS.com/MinuteClinic.
If you don’t have MinuteClinic near you, there may be other walk-in clinic options available to you. Search the Aetna provider network to find a walk-in clinic near you.
Another option is to contact Teladoc to resolve minor medical issues quickly, easily and remotely. You will have access to board-certified, telemedicine-trained doctors via phone, mobile and video 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can call Teladoc at 1-800-Teladoc (835-2362) or go online.
If you need care that’s more than minor, like fractures, sprains or other urgent injuries, urgent care centers also offer an economical alternative to ER visits. If you have chest pain, trouble breathing, bad bleeding or other symptoms that you believe may put your life at risk you should go to the emergency room. But not every health need is a medical emergency.
