illness iconsWhen you have a non-emergency medical issue or question, help is just a phone call away. This could be for when you’re not sure if you need to see a doctor or you want advice about treating an issue at home. It could also be to ask a question about an existing condition or diagnosis.

Annually, the Nurse Line helps nearly 1,000 employees. The top 5 caller concerns of the past year were:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Eye problems
  • Sore throat
  • Bug bites and stings
  • Rashes

You will be asked to provide your name and date of birth. Any information you share when using the Nurse Line is confidential and covered by the same state and federal HIPAA privacy guidelines that physicians follow.

The 24-Hour Nurse Line does not replace a doctor’s care and is not designed to address emergency situations. In an emergency, call 911.
