It’s time for healthcare to go digital.
If you’re looking for innovative health benefits that fit the changing healthcare landscape, help contain costs and satisfy groups and their members, you’ve found it. Telehealth is the most rapidly growing sector in the healthcare industry. Teladoc, the leading and fastest growing telehealth provider in the U.S., is among the market disruptors in the healthcare space that is making a positive impact.
Teladoc was recognized in June 2015 by MIT Technology Review as one of the “50 Smartest Companies.” Teladoc works with health plans, their groups and employees to provide access to affordable, high-quality healthcare on-demand.
Add remote care to your plan.
Physician-patient relationships are occurring more frequently thanks to the availability of remote care. Teladoc’s national network of board-certified physicians can wrap around your network to assist members when your physicians are unavailable, resolve access issues in rural areas, and provide an alternative to unnecessary urgent care and ER visits.
New products, technology-enabled services and the growth of Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) are driving the popularity of telehealth as it quickly becomes an integral part of improved access and delivery of care. Providers can successfully evaluate, diagnose and treat patients 24/7/365, from anywhere, by live video or telephone.

An emphasis on quality
Teladoc was the first telehealth company in the U.S. to have a NCQA certified provider credentialing, and we’ve received a perfect score two certifications in a row.
Teladoc works for Managed Medicaid.
Often times, Medicaid members will turn to the ER or urgent care center when their physician is unavailable, resulting in inappropriate use of costly medical care.
- 84% of Medicaid visits were not urgent or emergent.
- 23% of ER visits for children under the age of 15 were for minor conditions including respiratory, sore throat, and earaches.
- Lack of access to a provider is reported as the number one reason for improper use of the ER.
Offering telehealth to Medicaid members decreases nonessential ER and urgent care use, reducing your medical costs. Teladoc is the first and leading provider of telehealth medical consults in the United States. We provide members with 24/7/365 access to a doctor through the convenience of phone, mobile applications and video consults.
