Doctors Help Line

1999 Fall/Winter Newsletter

A recent FOCA initiative is the Doctors Help Line. You can have immediate access to a qualified family physician with at least seven years of experience at any time of the day or night 365 days a year. This service provides medical advice, information, a second opinion, and help in emergencies. To access the 1-877-377-5656 number, have your VISA or Mastercard ready. After a brief preamble, you will be connected to a physician. If you use the 1-900-643-5736 number, the charge is automatically put on your phone bill. The average call lasts three minutes and costs about $15.
