PhysicianNow And Nurseline: Your Resources for Wellness

The PhysicianNow program allows you to consult with a doctor by phone or video, 24 hours a day.

Does your busy schedule hinder going to the doctor?  No problem.

You don’t have to stop or rearrange your daily activities to speak to a physician. TVA is committed to helping you feel your best at work, home or wherever you may be by providing the PhysicianNow telehealth program.

PhysicianNow offers a convenient, lower-cost option for employees, retirees and their covered dependents who are enrolled in a TVA medical plan to speak to a physician. Board-certified physicians can consult with you by phone or secure video 24 hours a day to diagnose symptoms, treat non-emergency medical conditions, and prescribe non-narcotic medications for pickup at the pharmacy of your choice.

Consultations are subject to a service fee of $38, which applies to your medical plan deductible. PhysicianNow accepts most major credit and debit cards as well as Health Savings Account (HSA) cards.
