For more info on how to handle COVID-19 in your workplace, visit our blog. There are some simple measures you and your employees can take now to stay healthy and prepare for changes.

  • Download the Nextep mobile app. This will allow your people to check their paystubs and manage their accounts from their smartphones, wherever they are.
  • For a short time, all copays for Teladoc visits through the Aetna Health app will be waived, allowing your people to get the help they need while practicing the social distancing that can help keep them safe.
  • Are any of your employees still receiving paper paychecks? Their pay could be at risk due to delivery delays, weather, and other circumstances. Strongly encourage your employees to enroll in direct deposit or our pay card at their earliest convenience. 

As always, we’re here to help. Contact us by emailing resources@nextep.com, in the help section of your account, or at 888.811.5150.
