Telemedicine, also referred to as telehealth, is a convenient and efficient way to provide care to patients on a day-to-day basis. And, studies show that over 60% of adults said they would be willing to conduct doctor visits via video chat.

The cost of a telemedicine call is typically $40 compared with $125 for a traditional office visit.

Access Care Anytime, Anywhere

Telemedicine presents many advantages – offering plan members 24/7 access to care anywhere they need it, including from home and at the offie, using their mobile device, tablet or even Smart TV to virtually connect with a physician. This accessibility can improve employee productivity and satisfaction, keeping employees healthy and at work.

Quality Care Without the Office Visit

Telemedicine can be a substitute to the physician’s office. Using video chats, phone calls and even email, doctors can provide a diagnosis, determine a treatment plan, and even issue a prescription when necessary. All without an in-person visit. Ultimately, this can keep consumers out of primary care facilities, doctor’s offices and the ER – avoiding costly health claims.
