About The TelMed Network
Powered by MDLIVE
Our mission is to provide our customers with on-demand access to high-quality doctors online (using your laptop, tablet, or smartphone) for an affordable monthly rate.
The TelMed Network accomplishes this mission through our telemedicine services, powered by MDLIVE.
Telemedicine has gained worldwide acceptance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through telemedicine, you now have direct access to a doctor that can treat most non-emergency ailments, like colds, cases of flu, allergies, viruses, as examples.
If deemed medically necessary, our doctors will then send a prescription directly to your local pharmacy.
Why go to the doctor (and risk getting even sicker in the waiting room), when you can talk to a doctor live – 24/7/365 – without having to leave your house?
With Telemedicine, there is no more missing work, ER visits for non-emergency ailments, or waiting in a doctor’s office.
With all these benefits, it’s no wonder patients are happy with the care they receive through telemedicine, with 83% saying that their care was as good or better than an in-person visit to the doctor’s office!
TELEMEDICINE IS MORE AFFORDABLE
The average person pays $146 an office visit, according to a 2016 study in Health Affairs. I’m sure that the price has only increased the past couple of years.
As an additional cost, if you work during office hours, then you will have to take time off from your job to visit the doctor. For a non-emergency issue, missing a day’s worth of work and paying an additional $146 can be quite a costly event.
Telemedicine is more convenient and less expensive than doctor’s visits for non-emergency ailments. A virtual telemedicine appointment costs an average of $79. With telemedicine, you can see a doctor using any device, outside of business hours, which will prevent you from needing to take unnecessary time off from work. And, by eliminating the need to travel to and from the doctor’s office, telehealth can save people hundreds of dollars over a several-year period, as found in a 2017 study.
THE TELMED NETWORK SOLUTION
We don’t think money should stand in the way of affordable, high-quality, on-demand healthcare. That’s why we’ve created the TelMed Network.
The TelMed Network, powered by MDLIVE, offers all the benefits of telemedicine with an affordable solution.
We’ve created a network of people, and used our large numbers to negotiate lower prices for our members and their immediate family. And with your membership to the TelMed network, we can pass these savings to you.
Instead of high costs of $79 per virtual doctor visit, which can prevent people from using the service when they need it the most, we offer a convenient, affordable monthly subscription rate of only $19.99.
This subscription covers the user and their dependents. A dependent is a spouse or domestic partner of a primary member; a child under the age of 26 that is financially dependent on the primary member. (The child can be related, adopted or under legal guardianship.)
There are no limits to how often you use the service, yes you read that right, use the service as often as you require, there are no limits!
