Vacation with WellVia

44689244_S (2)If you’re like most of us, you have a mental checklist when it comes to packing a family vacation.

Toothbrushes, check! Clean underwear, swimsuits, summer clothes, and a sweater for cooler nights, check, check, and check!

WellVia? Hmm, that makes a lot of sense!

No one wants to go into vacation anticipating a case of swimmer’s ear or a strange rash. But going prepared lessens the chance of non-emergency medical issues derailing the fun.

Americans are rediscovering the physical and mental benefits of getting away from it all again. And according to the American Red Cross, 8 out of 10 of us are heading for the beach at some point this summer.

Knowing that as a WellVia member you have 24/7/365 access to bilingual, board-certified and U.S.-based physicians, wherever you are, just adds peace of mind to your vacation plans.

Consider this:

  • With WellVia’s telehealth services easily accessible and affordable, you’re not as likely to wait out a diagnosis, giving up a day or more of vacation fun while you see if it clears up on its own. With subscriptions less than $10 a month and consultations only $30 – a far cry from the typical $150 urgent care visit – you can request a doctor from wherever you are and, on average, hear back within 10 minutes. And studies show 92 percent of the issues brought to WellVia are successfully resolved!
  • Don’t know where to find healthcare in a strange city? That’s no issue with WellVia when you’re dealing with a non-emergency medical matter. Instead of driving around in the dark looking for an urgent-care center and spending hours in a waiting room, you connect with WellVia by phone or an internet connection from the comfort of your hotel room.
  • What else can you do to stay safe this summer? Pack along a few essentials, including sunblock with an SPF of 15 or more. Bring a thermometer, bandages, and other household medical supplies. Practice water safety; keep an eye on the kids. And remember to keep everyone hydrated! Even if you spend a lot of time in the water, if you’re not drinking fresh water and other fluids, the heat and exertion will deplete your supply.
