Gain access to U.S. board certified physicians, anytime, anywhere with Teladoc

Imagine a service that allows employees to immediately gain access to medical advice and treatment without having to make a timely and costly physician visit. With Teladoc all this is possible. With health care costs rising and wait times increasing, Teladoc is a revolutionary service that provides medical consultations with U.S. board-certified physicians. Teladoc not only accommodates busy schedules but, more importantly, keeps employees healthy and happy. The service is a simple 4-step process:

Step 1: Contact Teladoc

After employees experience symptoms of illness, all they need to do is simply log in to their online account or call 1-800-Teladoc to request a phone or online video consult with a U.S. board-certified physician.

Step 2: Talk with a Doctor

Next, a U.S. board-certified physician or pediatrician licensed to review the participant’s health records, will contact them and ask the appropriate questions within a consult that does not have a time restriction.

Step 3: Resolving The Issue

The physician is then able to recommend the appropriate treatment for the employee’s medical issue and if a prescription is necessary, it will be sent to the employee’s pharmacy of choice for their convenience. The doctor will then be sure that all questions and concerns have been addressed.

Step 4: Settling Up

Lastly, Teladoc charges the credit card that was provided when requesting the consult or the employee’s billing information on file. It is possible to request a receipt for deductibles or reimbursement, if needed. The physician updates the employee’s HIPAA-compliant EHR based upon the consult.

This four-step process gives employees an easier way to reach a physician and receive the appropriate treatment in an efficient amount of time. This service offers 24/7/365 access to U.S. board-certified physicians wherever and whenever it is needed. By using Teladoc, businesses can cut unnecessary costs and waste that occur from expensive and timely physician visits and keep their employees healthy, happy, and productive.
