Telehealth visits save you time and money – you can talk with a doctor by video or phone 24/7 whether you’re at work, home or traveling. Telehealth doctors can treat and prescribe medications for everyday illnesses like the flu, sinus infections, a cough and a lot more.

  • As part of our efforts to support employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Caterpillar healthcare plan will cover telehealth visits through Teladoc (UHC members) or MDLive (Blue Cross Blue Shield members) at no cost to participants through June 30, 2021.
  • Effective January 1, 2021: Virtual visits with your regular doctor’s office remain a covered benefit but are subject to your medical plan benefits for non-COVID-19 services.

Caterpillar's UnitedHealthcare plan options offer telehealth visits (also known as "Virtual Visits"), and our Blue Cross Blue Shield plan option offers them through their vendor MDLIVE. (International Assignees: For telehealth resources under the Cigna Global plan, see the ISE section.)

Recent federal COVID-19 pandemic legislation allows Caterpillar to offer special flexible spending account (FSA) enrollment opportunities that eligible employees can take advantage of now through October 31, 2021.
