Today's health insurance plans have high deductibles leaving you to pay most or all of the routine medical expenses. One of the most effective cost-reducing tools is a telemedicine plan that can be used to speak with a physician as needed.
Telemedicine plans are not insurance. Telemedicine plans are available as a stand-alone benefit or can be combined with dental and vision discount plans or ancillary benefits.
The number of companies offering telemedicine services grew from 45 in 2010 to 85 in 2015. Freedom Benefits offers only a few of these choices. Most providers use video chats between health-care providers and patients. Other rely on patient portals to connect patients with providers.
The national leader in these plans is Careington that offers services to individuals and businesses. We recommend that you check out the wide range of Careington plans as a first choice in individual telemedicine plans.
Telemedicine call be added to any employee group health plan through CallMD. Individuals can get the same service when they enroll in Value Med supplemental health insurance. A range of employee wellness programs are available based on the location of your business.
The dental/vision/hearing plan issued by United Commercial Travelers is a popular multi-benefit plan that can be combined with (and pays in addition to) any other insurance. This plan is available to individuals and businesses.
