What can I use telehealth for?

When you're feeling sick or overwhelmed, you can talk to a licensed provider from your smartphone or any web-enabled device for free. Medical providers can diagnose common conditions (such as a cold, flu, or sinus infection) and the TalkNow service gives students a safe space to talk (for example, about anxiety surrounding COVID-19, relationship issues, or depression).

Licensed providers are available to diagnose non-emergent medical conditions, prescribe medications and offer mental health support via phone or secure video visits.

Is there a limit to the number of TimelyMD visits?

No, you have unlimited visits as long as you are an enrolled student at DVC February 1, 2021-February 1, 2022.
