HEALTHCARE SOLUTIONS – TelaMed Access Plus
The doctor is always in with Telehealth services from TelaMed Access. Across the country, employers are providing a benefit to their employees to reduce absenteeism and boost their bottom lines. With TelaMed Access, employees (and their families) can pick up the phone 24/7, call a board certified physician and discuss symptoms, get treatment options, a diagnosis, and a prescription when necessary – all over the phone! So instead of missing work and sitting around in crowded waiting rooms full of sick people, employees can make one call, get treated, and get back to work.

Employers are Finding Solutions
Research shows over 70% of doctor office visits are unnecessary and over 66% of emergency room visits are non-emergencies, which results in overuse costs to employers of over $63 billion. And with estimates of employer productivity loss due to medical absenteeism at more than $100 billion, the case for Telehealth quickly becomes evident.
Savings for Your Business
On average, an employee loses half a day of work for a typical doctor’s office visit. At a wage of $35/hour, you could save $140 in lost time and productivity by providing Telehealth benefits to your employees.
