Back to School Telemedicine Benefits


The new school year is on the horizon. As an attempt to help you accelerate any medical appointments your child might need, please take a look at the Telemedicine benefits offered to you by Standard Motor Products, Inc.

Teladoc is offered to SMP employees as part of your enrollment in one of our medical plans. With doctors now available nationwide on Teladoc 24/7, day or night, you can access your Teladoc benefits with just a call or click away. Whether you’re inquiring about a flu, a cough or even a sinus infection, Teladoc licensed doctors and pediatricians are available at your disposable by phone or video call from wherever you are. Your Teladoc services provide every day care for non-emergencies as well. You can get your diagnosis, treatment and/or prescription virtually while avoiding potential high cost and long wait times at the Doctor’s or ER.

To access your Teladoc, download the app to create an account, update your medical history and connect to a doctor. For more information, please visit www.Teladoc.com or contact Teladoc at 1-800-835-2362. As a reminder unless you are enrolled in the PPO plan you will have a fee associated with your Teladoc appointment. Teladoc has services for general health, dermatology and mental health.

Similar to Teladoc, LiveHealth Online also helps facilitate employees access to the care they need when they need it by using a smart phone, tablet or computer with a webcam as part of their enrollment in one of SMP medical plans. Employees have 24/7 access to English and Spanish speaking board-certified doctors with no appointments required or long wait times. In addition to medical advice, prescriptions are also available to the pharmacy of your choice based on the physician’s judgment.

LiveHealth Online appointments are at zero cost for employees enrolled in SMP PPO plan. However, employees enrolled in SMP HSA Health plan will be charged based on their visits that will go towards their deductibles. All employees must sign up with LiveHealth Online to access those benefits. You have access to both general health and mental health services.
