The National Restaurant Association is offering members access to telemedicine and pharmacy-discount programs to help keep themselves and their employees healthy.

The National Restaurant Association is offering two programs to help members and their employees stay healthy and safe.

Through its new partner, Healthiest You, the Association is making a telemedicine option available to its members. The service is $7/month per employee. There are no co-pays, and all family members can use the service.

Those interested in participating in the telemedicine option can contact healthcareinfo@restaurant.org for full details.

The Association is also providing free access to a pharmacy discount-card program that offers better pricing and discounts on prescriptions not covered under insurance. The program, administered through OptumRx®, leverages a large network and buying power to access reduced prices. Anyone can use the card, including those who are uninsured. Here are some features of the program.

  • The card is available now through email, text message, or at-home printing
  • Discounts are guaranteed on all FDA-approved medications at more than 60,000 pharmacies nationwide
  • Participating pharmacies include Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target, Costco, Good Neighbor, CVS, Duane Reade, and Sam’s Club
  • The card is available to all employees and their families at no cost — and zero cost to employers
