If members are forced to stay at home for long periods of time or temporarily relocate, CCA Health California offers members the following resources:
To address urgent needs while experiencing or rebuilding during a crisis, CCA Health California partners with Teladoc Health to provide confidential and free 24/7 access to US board-certified physicians and prescriptions when needed. Members should contact a Teladoc Health member services representative through their natural disaster hotline (1-855-225-5032 TTY:771) to request a free visit. You must call the natural disaster hotline for your free visit even if you already use a Teladoc Health account for care.
Emergency prescription refills:

Health products and supplies:
CCA Health California members receive up to $55 per quarter to spend on over-the-counter health products and supplies that can be ordered online and delivered to your home.
