Telemedicine & Telebehavioral Health

71% of ER care by patients with employer-sponsored coverage is avoidable. Diverting members who need nonemergency care to alternative options could mean significant healthcare savings for both members and employers. One solution? Telemedicine.

Telemedicine provides members with 24/7 on-demand digital medical doctor visits for common conditions like sinusitis, upper respiratory infections, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, and more with just a few taps on their phones. When a board-certified physician is just a phone call away and an expensive, stressful trip to the ER is the alternative, telemedicine is really a no-brainer.

Telebehavioral Health

As part of our Digital Savings Solution, members get access to general medical telemedicine, and adult members get access to telebehavioral health for ongoing visits with behavioral professionals like psychiatrists, therapists, psychologists, counselors, and social workers. These professionals can support adult members with eating disorders, anxiety, family difficulties, grief, depression, and more.

Providing adult members with telebehavioral healthcare options is particularly important because mental health disorders actually increase the cost of treating chronic diseases like COPD and diabetes.
