Telemedicine Tool Kit Available

On January 1, we launched a new telemedicine benefit powered by MDLIVE. Telemedicine is a benefit that is included in all fully-insured plans and is available as a buy up for self-funded groups. Members can now engage with a doctor remotely via video or phone for non-urgent conditions when their own physician is not available.

We’ve developed a tool kit to assist employers with promotion of an early registration campaign, as well as a calendar of promotional messages to use throughout the year. Once registered, members can access MDLIVE through single sign on from the Excellus BCBS website.

Telemedicine is a convenient and less costly option than urgent care or emergency room visits for minor conditions. We are widely promoting Telemedicine through a variety of media outlets and campaigns in the community with the ultimate goal of reducing the burden of unnecessary emergency room visits.

Additional resources and information can be found below.
