If you are enrolled in a Sysco-sponsored national medical plan, here are some benefits that can support you in your efforts to prevent exposure and spread and keep you and your family healthy during this time:
Telehealth – This is the time to be extra thoughtful about whether you really need to see a doctor in person. If you have a minor ailment like a skin rash, instead of sitting in a doctor’s office waiting room, consider using Telehealth and visiting with a doctor via phone or video chat from your home.

Telemental Health – During stressful times like these, it helps to have some support. No need to venture out–you can visit with a therapist via phone or video chat from your own couch with Telemental health services through Spring Health. There’s even an online assessment tool to help match you with the right therapist. To support you, Sysco is offering you up to 5 free virtual counseling sessions through the end of June. Learn More
Parent Support Resources – With schools and day care centers closing and many parents working from home, you may need some extra support. Parent Support Benefits through Rethink Benefits can offer you services and resources to help you and your children. Learn More
Mail Order Prescriptions – There’s no need to go to a busy pharmacy to fill your prescriptions. You can have them delivered right to your door using Express Script's home delivery service. Learn More
Diabetes Support Resources – This can be an especially stressful time for those living with diabetes, who are at higher risk of serious complications related to COVID-19. Virta, one of Sysco’s partners who provides you with diabetes condition resources, is keeping you informed about the impact of COVID-19 on diabetes. Learn More
Virtual Physical Therapy – If you’re seeing a physical therapist, there is no need to pause or put off your care in an effort to avoid doctor’s offices and hospitals. You have access to virtual physical therapy through Physera. Learn More
