Teladoc, Inc. has just announced that UnitedAg has expanded the telehealth benefits for its 35,000 insured members to include coverage for behavioral health, dermatology and smoking cessation.
With strong utilization across Teladoc’s wide array of general health services, along with a high percentage of repeat telehealth visits, UnitedAg “sees significant value in providing these additional services to its members,” today’s announcement reads.
“A big part of the value equation that we offer our members and their families is access to cost-effective, high-quality care through Teladoc,” said Kirti Mutatkar, president and CEO of UnitedAg. “Since we joined Teladoc in July 2015, our members have continued to use and rely on their telehealth benefits, so the choice to further expand this relationship is a logical one.”
UnitedAg is an Association Health Plan serving more than 600 agricultural member groups and over 35,000 covered lives.
“The true value of the full suite of Teladoc clinical capabilities is realized when our partners like UnitedAg extend access to their members, and those most in need can count on quality care, wherever they are,” said Jason Gorevic, chief executive officer of Teladoc. “As we expand our relationship with UnitedAg, we will continue our active engagement with them and their members to assure that all parties derive maximum value from the Teladoc telemedicine services.”
