DOCUMENT YOUR CHILD'S EXPERIENCES AND DEVELOPMENT WITH LORESTRY

Lorestry is the next generation baby tracker. It’s an app for parents and caregivers that keeps your baby’s life story from birth to age 6 and helps you communicate with your care teams.

The app has many valuable features and tools. You can:

  • Record developmental milestones, firsts, favorites and daily images.
  • Create word clouds and monitor early feelings and emotional health.
  • View monthly reports of your observations, including your child’s progress toward meeting development milestones.

There is no cost to use the Lorestry app. The premium membership for a lifetime subscription (a $400 value) is paid by Children's Mercy.

To get started, learn more on the Scope or request your invitation code from Benefits@cmh.edu.

Please note that the app is exclusive to Apple devices at this time and coming soon for Android users. If you only have an Android device, you may give your invitation to a family member or friend who has an Apple device.

FIND A DOCTOR

It’s always important to check whether your current providers participate in the Cigna network. Visit www.cigna.com.

TALK TO A DOCTOR VIA TELEHEALTH CONNECTION

Through Cigna’s Telehealth Connection service, you have 24/7 access to a board-certified doctor by phone or video conference. This quick and effective alternative for diagnosing and treating nonemergency medical needs is available to you and your dependents. The consult fee is treated like a normal medical expense under the medical plan you’re enrolled in. If you have money in your Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), you can use it to automatically pay for your consult, or you can pay out of your pocket and save your HRA dollars for future eligible medical expenses under your Children’s Mercy medical plan. Any amount you owe will be stated clearly on your Explanation of Benefits. Cigna offers telehealth services through MDLive, and the cost per consult is $55. Learn more by visiting MDLIVEforCigna.com.
