What’s your favorite summer destination? Whether it’s the beach, the mountains, an island getaway or international travel, we have your back at Radish Health! Your seamless medical experience follows you on vacation to countless destinations. Today we’ll explore the myriad advantages of having Radish available during your vacation and highlight considerations to make the most of this valuable resource.

How Radish Can Help You on Vacation

  1. Medical Consultations: Even on vacation, unexpected health issues can arise. Save yourself the hassle of trying to find a local urgent care when your Radish doctor is always reachable on the Radish app.
  2. Prescription Refills: Forgot your inhaler at home or got a cold sore flare up while away? Just chat with your Radish doctor to get a refill of the medication you need now. No need to spend precious vacation time figuring out how to get care.
  3. Continuity of Care: Vacations don’t have to disrupt your ongoing medical treatment. Radish allows you to stay connected with your doctor, ensuring continuity of care while you’re away – especially for chronic conditions like asthma or diabetes.
  4. Medical Advice: There’s no question too big or small. If your allergies are acting up and you’re trying to figure out what medication to get, send us a quick chat for some friendly advice. With Radish, we’ve got your back even when you’re away.
  5. Emergency Assistance: We’re here to help you find a local urgent care or emergency room if needed. Simply chat with your care coordinator to help find a place you can go for local medical support that is vetted by our team and accepts your insurance.

Considerations When Using Radish on Vacation

  1. Know Your Options: If you’re traveling out of state, check with us to confirm that we can deliver telehealth services while you’re away. In some cases local laws may prohibit cross border medical care, but we’ll do everything we can to help you out.
  2. Check Your Coverage: If you have an HMO plan or are traveling internationally, your health insurance may not cover you during travel. Chat with our care coordinators before your trip to help determine whether travel insurance might be a good idea.
  3. Medical Records: You have access to your Radish related medical records anywhere you go. Simply log into the Radish app and go to “Results” tab to see all your Radish care in one place.
  4. Time Zones: Your Radish app automatically adjusts to your current time zone, but you may want to check with us before your appointment to confirm when you should connect and whether we can deliver care in the state where you’re traveling.

We’re here for you at Radish, whether at home, at work, or on vacation! If you have a medical concern at any point, don’t hesitate to reach out for help or advice. Your Radish doctor is here to assist as your health companion on-the-go, so let your spirit of adventure join forces with your personal well being. Safe travels!
