Going To The Doctor Will Never Be The Same
We’re excited to share that we’ve added a new service to our benefits offerings—98point6®.
98point6 is a new kind of primary care that gives you on‑demand access to a physician via text messaging on your mobile phone. We’ve added 98point6 to your benefits package so you can now have access to care 24/7 from wherever you are—on the bus commuting to work, at a coffee shop or even in a meeting.
98point6 physicians can:
- Diagnose and treat a range of conditions, including upper respiratory illness, sexual health/UTIs, gastrointestinal issues and behavioral health concerns (stress, anxiety)
- Answer any medical questions you have (no question is too small)
- Provide consultation and outline care options
- Order any necessary prescriptions or lab tests
Visits with 98point6 physicians are available to eligible employees and dependents aged 1 and older enrolled in a News Corp medical plan at no cost to PPO or HMO plan participants, and for only $5 for those with a CDHP.
We invite you to take a few minutes today to download and register for 98point6 so that it’s easy to access and use when you need it in the future. Instructions on how to download the app and connect your benefit to News Corp are available at 98point6.com/newscorp. For more information, visit 98point6.com and check out these brief videos:
