Don’t Let an Illness or Injury Slow You Down - Get Care On the Go With Doctor on Demand®

August 2019 

The family picnic . . . time for some outdoor fun and tasty summer treats. But when the lemonade and popsicles arrive, the bees and wasps are usually close behind. Is it the perfect summer afternoon - or the perfect opportunity for a painful sting?

Good Thing You Can Get Fast Care Anywhere
Fortunately, State of Iowa employees and retirees have Doctor On Demand. You get fast, affordable video visits with a doctor online, anytime, anywhere, including treatment and prescriptions* for all kinds of common summer conditions, like respiratory infections, rashes, bug bites and stings, urinary tract infections, minor sports injuries, and more. 

Why See a Doctor Online?
There are lots of reasons to give it a try. Care from Doctor On Demand is . . . 

  • CONVENIENT: Get care anywhere - at home, on the go, even when traveling out of state. 
  • RELIABLE: Be seen in minutes, 24/7**.
  • EASY: Connect to board-certified physicians at the touch of a button.
  • LOW-COST: Just a $10 copay per visit for most employees - much more affordable than a trip to the emergency room.
