KentuckyOne Health Launching Telemedicine Program

KentuckyOne Health Launching Telemedicine ProgramIf you’re not familiar with KentuckyOne Health, the organization’s mission is pretty simple.

To provide better care to all Kentuckians, leading health providers have come together to form KentuckyOne Health.

To that end, KentuckyOne Health confirmed on Thursday a new venture in the realm of telemedicine that will better serve residents of the Bluegrass State.
Through the program, Kentuckians will receive care over the phone or by Web cam for a flat fee of $35.

According to a local news report, the program – Kentucky One Anywhere Care – “will let patients call for care around the clock and be answered within 30 minutes with a phone call or video chat by a doctor or nurse practitioner.”

The fee is $35 for each visit and is paid by patients whether they have insurance or not. The service will be available to KentuckyOne Health employees later this month, and to the public on Nov. 1.

Travis Burgett, KentuckyOne’s director of strategy, tells the local press that the organization’s service is likely to be used for routine conditions such as sinusitis, respiratory infections and urinary-tract infections.
