Telemedicine. Tele – Medicine. Yes, that’s right. Medical consultation given via phone- what a time to be alive!
One of the new, innovative services we’re seeing take a massive grip on the healthcare marketplace are telemedicine providers that will literally allow you to chat directly with a certified health professional via phone, face-time or email. Through this service you can receive consultation, have medicine prescribed, utilize mental health services, and much more, and normally they don’t even require health insurance. There are two main reasons why these programs have taken the healthcare community by storm.
The first reason this service has become popular is the almighty driver itself- money. Proper use of telemedicine can save you literally thousands of dollars! By taking advantage of this service, you can avoid going to the doctor all together, also while avoiding the bill. That’s right, no copays, office visits, or examination costs. This will also help you avoid unnecessary and expensive ER visits- something many of our checking accounts know all too well.
The second reason has a lot to do with the number one concern on everyone’s mind today- exposure. If you or your loved ones have a sinus infection, UTI, pink eye, etc… you know you’re going to need to take a trip to the doctor, all while further exposing yourself and your family to whatever else is living in that waiting room. As social distancing is extremely important in the health-atmosphere today, a telemedicine service will allow you to skip the urgent-care trip and talk with a physician directly, allowing them to write the script over the phone and helping you avoid unnecessary exposure.
So if you currently don’t have a telemedicine service at your disposal, or you do and don’t find it useful, reach out to us ASAP. We offer plans for as little as $11/month- you will not regret adding this to your health arsenal, regardless of your Health Insurance status.
