Telehealth Discount Plan

As a Parker university student, you automatically become enrolled in a telehealth discount plan that is provided by the University. The telehealth plan is not health insurance. It is a discount plan that is available to students. All students are automatically entered into the system, but students must go online to complete registration and set up their account and add dependents*.  

You can visit MyBenefitsWork.com or download the My Benefits Work Mobile app to set up your benefits. You will need to use the member ID and group number provided in the email you received to register.  A member card will be mailed to the address you provide at enrollment.
