So, Your Carrier Has Telemedicine Benefits…
Carriers are offering telemedicine in their major medical plans. There is the opportunity to choose the carrier’s telemedicine benefit.
The way BIG CARRIERS offered telemedicine, it will NEVER ALLOW employers or employees to realize the FULL VALUE of this healthcare delivery method.
BUT before you choose this option for its convenience
It’s essential to remember that
are much, much different.
Telemedicine benefits through a Big Carrier DO NOT provide Max ROI
THE CARRIER SEES IT AS JUST ANOTHER WAY TO GENERATE A CLAIM.
THERE’S LITTLE (OR NO) ENGAGEMENT STRATEGY.
TELEMEDICINE LOW UTILIZATION RATES KILL ROI AND SAVINGS, ANYWAY.
