In addition to the convenience and ease that come with using telemedicine programs, a recent report from Employee Benefit News suggests that its use may also save employers significantly in healthcare expenses.
Telemedicine is a relatively new service and is presently still underutilized. According to the report, “Consensus is building that telehealth saves time, money, worry and hassle in the workplace, but abysmal usage levels mean this new delivery system isn’t even close to meeting its full potential.”
With options like MYidealDOCTOR from Taylor Insurance Services, access to fast, accurate diagnoses and prompt prescription availability (when needed), telemedicine is certainly taking off. Urgent care and emergency room visits can become costly very quickly, while most telehealth programs require only a small monthly fee.
