Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2017
Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication technology that allows medical professionals to provide clinical health care and consultation services real time from a distance. For people who lead busy lives or cannot afford to see a doctor, telemedicine is a timesaving and cost-effective alternative. A recent study conducted by UC Davis found that patients who used telemedicine saved on average of four hours and $156 in direct travel costs for an individual consultation. Since telemedicine allows patients to interact with physicians face-to-face remotely, it reduces inconveniences and costs that stand in between.
The practice of telemedicine has been available for awhile and there are a number of premium providers, such as Teladoc, that have been around for more than a decade. Teladoc, a premium provider of telemedicine, offers a network of 3100+ licensed healthcare professionals including trained physicians, dermatologists, and therapists. Individuals who are interested in Teladoc can reap its financial benefits even more through Premium Health Connections (PHC). Currently, PHC has unveiled a deal with Teladoc that offers telemedicine services at the most affordable rates.
With Premium Health Connections, customers have the choice to pick the package that best matches their health and financial needs. Aside from telemedicine, packages offer other range of non-insured benefits that start at $10.99.
For patients who do not want to be restricted by time and money, telemedicine is a proven method that can meet their necessities.
