PPA Benefit Focus: Prioritize Mental Health with Telemedicine

This May, as we observe Mental Health Awareness Month, it’s crucial to recognize the unique challenges that professionals, particularly those in creative fields like photography, face in managing their mental and physical health. For photographers, who often manage erratic schedules and frequent travel, accessing traditional healthcare can be a daunting task filled with long waits and cumbersome paperwork.

PPA is dedicated to supporting the artistic endeavors of our members and also their well-being! It's why we're proud to offer an invaluable resource: Telemedicine from Call a Doctor Plus. This service transforms healthcare management for our members, allowing them to consult with doctors quickly and easily, without ever needing to step into a doctor's office.


Convenient, Quick, and Comprehensive Care

Call a Doctor Plus provides a comprehensive telehealth solution that caters to the mind, body, and wallet. Members can access U.S. Board-certified physicians 24/7, capable of diagnosing illnesses, answering health queries, evaluating medical images sent via smartphones, and prescribing necessary medications to local pharmacies. All of these services come without the burden of a co-pay, deductible, or per-call charge!


The service also includes support for mental health concerns, offering one-on-one assistance that addresses both personal and work-life issues. This feature is part of the total care approach that Call a Doctor Plus champions—ensuring our members receive holistic care that encompasses physical health and financial well-being, including assistance in medical bill negotiations.

Flexible and Affordable

For a modest monthly fee of $14.95—significantly reduced from the standard $24.95—PPA members can add up to five dependents, covering a wide array of care needs from pediatric to geriatric. This flexibility makes it an ideal choice for both individual photographers and those with families.

Compared to a traditional doctor's office, Call a Doctor Plus is less expensive and care is delivered quickly through any type of personal device.

The quality of care is guaranteed by the expertise of the healthcare providers involved—all doctors are U.S. based, Board Certified, and state-licensed, with an average of 15 years of in-office experience. During Mental Health Awareness Month, we encourage PPA members to utilize this benefit to its fullest, ensuring they not only create great art but live healthy lives.
