Summer checklist part 1: Take care of your physical health
As the temperature rises over the coming weeks, we all know what’s coming: the busy season for CoolSys. Now is the perfect time to make sure you’ve done everything you can to have a healthy summer.
Take a moment to consider the questions below and familiarize yourself with the ways in which your CoolSys benefits can help you meet those needs.
Do I have all of the prescriptions I’ll need for the summer?
Mail-order prescriptions and refills are available with all CoolSys medical plans. This option saves you not only money but time. Prescriptions are mailed directly to your home, so you won’t have to stand in line at your local pharmacy. You can access mail-order pharmacy options on your provider’s website—if you’re covered by Anthem www.anthem.com/CA , and www.kp.org if Kaiser is your provider.
Do I need to see my doctor to have my prescription renewed?
A telemedicine appointment may be the perfect solution for many health concerns. It can be a particularly helpful option these days, when you may be hesitant to go to your physician’s office or other healthcare facility. Best of all, telemedicine can save you time and quite a bit of money.
As a virtual care platform, telemedicine enables health care professionals and patients to meet by phone or video chat, or consult by email. In most cases, you can get all the medical advice you may need for common health concerns, mild COVID-19 symptoms, mental health issues and much more—all from the convenience and safety of your own home.
