What's New in Human Resources?

2015 Medical Benefit Changes

Carleton College will be changing medical plan providers for plan year 2015 (January 2015) to HealthPartners.  For more information and frequently asked questions, please check out the "2015  Medical Page" here.

Consult A Doctor (Teledoc)

Effective June 23, 2014, Consult A Doctor will become formally known as Teledoc.  Employees' member ID cards will remain the same and the vendor's contact number and website remain unchanged.  For those members who have used this benefit in the past, you will be required to set up a new user name and password on line and update your medical history.  Unfortunately, there is no ability to transfer this information from the current platform.

In order to do this, members can complete this process by calling 1-800-DOC-CONSULT (1-800-362-2667) or online at (click "Set up account" to register and click "My Medical History" to update your medical history disclosure.
