With social distancing and quarantine being widely implemented to prevent the spread of COVID-19, one other measure is being touted as a critical way to keep the numbers of infection down: telehealth. Telehealth, or the ability to connect with a medical professional virtually, is important to controlling this pandemic in a number of ways:
Telehealth programs have been available for years, but until this pandemic, utilization has remained fairly low even as other forms of technology have grown in popularity, and despite its levels of convenience, overall accessibility and affordability. The outbreak of COVID-19 is poised to change perceptions of telehealth and its benefits.
How can you obtain telehealth benefits?
Telehealth benefits may be offered through your employer’s health insurance coverage or as a standalone program. One standalone program offered through Ally Health and vetted by Fab 5 Benefits, provides access to medical professionals 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. The $19.95/month subscription (available through Fab 5 Benefits) covers all immediate family members and offers a $0 co-pay for unlimited visits.
Use telehealth to put social distancing into practice and manage your family’s healthcare needs during this time of global crisis.
Today, valuable benefits go beyond the traditional medical, dental, vision typically offered by employers. Our role, at Fab 5 Benefits, is to seek out those high-quality "extra" benefit providers and share them with you. We have vetted these providers and share the best, lowest cost option to you and your family. Learn more at www.fab5benefits.com
