Call A Doctor Plus is Helping Photographers Stay Healthy - PPA Today

Call A Doctor Plus is Helping Photographers Stay Healthy

By Aleighia Rouse

Achoo! Flu and cold season are right around the corner and the last thing you need is to get sick right before Jen and Michael's wedding, the biggest event you have this year. But if by chance you do get sick, we have the perfect solution to your sickness. PPA has joined forces with Call A Doctor Plus, a 24/7 telemedicine service that provides access to U.S. certified doctors, that gives PPA members consultations and simple prescriptions; and- get this- you don't even have to leave the comfort of your home!

CADR+ is not health insurance, but is a very useful resource that helps with your day-to-day health needs. There is no copay, deductible, or even a per-call charge. CADR+ simply connects you with the doctor by phone or online in matter of 30 minutes or less. You don't even have to wait on the line: they call you back!

Perhaps you do get diagnosed with the flu or something a little bit more than the common cold, the doctor will inform you right there. You are probably wondering, "well how do they know what's really wrong", some of the doctors ask to snap a photo on your smartphone to help them address the condition spot on. When the doctor gets an understanding of what is wrong then a prescription is sent your local pharmacy. 

This amazing medical resource saves a lot of time, stress, and money (remember? No copay, no deductible and no parking fees!). Are you still not convinced? CADR+ allows you to include up to 5 people on the program with no extra charge. And when you are a PPA member it is only $8.95/month, which is 60% off the regular Call A Doctor Plus $24.95/month rate. 

Again, it is important that you note CADR+ is not health insurance, but a way to help with day-to day health needs. PPA cannot offer discounted health insurance (if you want to understand why, click here), but is the only photographic organization that is currently offering telemedicine through CADR+.
