Health Advice Line

Call 888.257.4342 to speak with a registered nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will need your member ID number available when you call. If you’re calling GEHA’s Health Advice Line from outside the United States, call collect at 709.835.8243.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine is a way to get virtual access to board certified doctors and therapists. All GEHA medical members are eligible for telemedicine powered by MDLIVE.

MDLIVE is designed to handle non-emergency medical conditions and behavioral health issues and can often be an alternative for a doctor’s visit, urgent care center or emergency room visit. Telemedicine is not intended to replace your primary care doctor or to be used in life-threatening emergencies. E-prescriptions can be sent to your local pharmacy, if required. Learn more about MDLIVE including the covered conditions.
