The CADR+ service is consistent with our overarching mission: to provide the tools and support needed to put people on the path to sustainable behavioral and physical health.

MINES and Associates (MINES), a nationally recognized business psychology firm, today announced a partnership with Call a Doctor Plus (CADR+), a health and wellness program powered by Teladoc, that provides 24/7 access to medical services and advice from a user's phone, computer or mobile device. The MINES/CADR+ program enables employees to receive on-demand diagnosis, treatment plans and prescriptions (if needed) from Board Certified and State Licensed physicians. Employees can use it as much as needed for one fixed monthly fee -- there are no co-pays, deductibles, hidden fees or per-call charges.

MINES will provide high touch account management for participating employer groups and their employees, either as a standalone program or as a component of their full complement of EAP, wellness and business psychology services. CADR+ can be purchased by the employer for all employees, can be offered as a voluntary benefit, or purchased individually. All enrollees in the CADR+ program can also cover up to 5 additional family members with unlimited consultations a year.

"As evidenced by our industry-leading employee utilization rates, MINES is committed to early access to care whether it's for behavioral health or medical issues," said Dr. Robert Mines, CEO of MINES. "The CADR+/MINES program reduces the stress of finding care and advice when it's needed -- whether for the individual or his/her family. Telemedicine is an important innovation in healthcare delivery on both the behavioral and medical sides. Combining MINES's high touch, personalized account management with CADR+, the premier telehealth service, is consistent with our overarching mission: to provide the tools and support needed to put people on the path to sustainable behavioral and physical health."

MINES’ CADR+ program includes a wellness card powered by Welldyne that gives discounts on dental, vision, pharmaceuticals, and medical supplies. Furthermore, MINES’ program can also offer free legal/financial consults for a half-hour, plus a discount with the attorney or financial professional if further services are needed.

"My first experience using Call a Doc Plus was on Christmas Day when I realized I had a urinary tract infection that needed immediate attention," said Erin Griffin, Marketing Director with Life Advantages. "Instead of heading to a clinic, I tried Call a Doc Plus and two minutes later I received a call from a doctor who was friendly and helpful, giving me info about the script she was calling in and self care advice. The Call a Doc rep had assisted me in locating a pharmacy open on Christmas night, where the prescription was ready for pickup 15 minutes after it was called in. I was better the next day and so thankful to have had Call a Doc to help me."
