When You Need Medical Care

When dealing with medical issues for yourself or a loved one, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. NetApp provides benefits and resources to help guide you toward the appropriate care.

Telehealth by MDLIVE

Don’t worry about fitting a doctors’ appointment into your busy schedule. If you are enrolled in the Traditional Plan or Health Savings Plan, MDLIVE saves you money, time and a trip to the doctor’s office.

MDLIVE connects you to a U.S. board certified doctor or pediatrician by phone or secure video, at your convenience, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Doctors can offer advice on basic urgent care needs—allergies, cold and flu symptoms, ear infections and more. When they give you a diagnosis, they also can seamlessly send prescriptions to your local pharmacy.*

  • If you’re enrolled in the Traditional Plan, you’ll pay only $20 per consultation.
  • If you’re enrolled in the Health Savings Plan, you’ll pay only $38 per consultation.

Use MDLIVE when:

  • It’s not convenient for you to leave work or home.
  • Your doctor or pediatrician is not available on your schedule.
  • You have non-emergency health concerns and it’s afterhours.
  • As a cost-effective alternative to costly ER or urgent care visits.
  • You’re traveling and need medical care.

Urgent Care or the Emergency Room?

How do you decide where you should go for medical care when you're ill or injured?

If you think you're experiencing a life-threatening or severe condition, call 911 or go directly to the emergency room.

However, most health situations don’t require emergency medical care. In fact, you can save time—and often save money—by using an urgent care center.

For routine or other non-urgent care, your primary care physician will have a better picture of your overall health for a more accurate evaluation and diagnosis.

Or, contact your medical plan’s Nurse Line. The nurses can assess your needs and direct you to the appropriate facility.
