The TeladocTM program through Meritain Health allows members to take control of their health and ward off chronic illness with convenient, timely access to appropriate physician care. Obstacles to care—such as long wait times and long work hours—prevent members from accessing the care they need. With Teladoc, treatments such as quick medical advice or basic prescriptions* are available to members, on demand. This helps prevent trips to the emergency room for non-emergent conditions, or worsened health through un-addressed medical needs.
Teladoc connects members with state-licensed physicians, for unlimited, non-emergent medical consultation by phone, email or video consultation. Conditions commonly treated through Teladoc include:
- Sinus infections.
- Urinary tract infections.
- Many other conditions.
Teladoc is earning praise among our clients and members for the cost savings it provides, as well as how it enhances an employee benefits package. As ROIs begin at 2:1 and increase with higher utilization, this program is a proven method to help solve the healthcare concerns employers face today. Employees are provided with immediate access to quality, credentialed physicians, helping employers gain control of healthcare spending.
