Additional Benefits

Nurse Advice Line

All FirstMedicare Direct members have access to the Nurse Advice Line to get health care information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Specially trained nurses help you when you have questions about health concerns or need health information. The nurse advice line is available at no cost.

The Nurse Advice Line can help you decide what kind of care to seek. You might be able to treat the condition at home, you might need to see your doctor, or you might need to get urgent or immediate care.
