Telemedicine is a cost and time-saving alternative to Primary Care and Urgent Care facility visits. Plan subscribers can connect virtually with U.S. Board Certified doctors in all 50 states who specialize in Emergency, Family, and Pediatric Medicine, as well as Behavioral/Mental Health. According to the Wellness Council of America, it is estimated that 70% of Primary Care visits and 40% of Urgent Care visits can be administered by telehealth services.
