Teladoc is an affordable alternative to costly urgent care and ER visits when you need care now. It does not replace your primary physician.
Convenience. It can be hard for employees to take time out of the day to see a physician. In areas where the provider network is limited, telemedicine can be a good supplement to visiting a physician.
Cost. Telemedicine, if communicated appropriately, can provide employees who tend to rely on the ER and urgent care more than others with a much less expensive alternative for after-hours care.
Managing chronic illness. Employees or their relatives with chronic conditions may find it difficult to get to the doctor's office regularly. The technology to transmit this data from a patient's home to a doctor's office is more robust than ever.

Cold & flu symptoms
Urinary tract infection
