Nevada Wellhealth recommends Telemedicine to the Clark County School District using Health Alliance Network providers
Telemedicine offers the 40,000 participants convenience and lowers costs for low-acuity healthcare during the busy school year, while also bridging gaps in care during holidays, the summer travel season along with nights and weekends.
This new benefit has caught on with plan participants right away. Over 34% of the participants have used our telemedicine product.
The high numbers are attributed to the participants (teachers) satisfaction with the program. " We felt telemedicine would fill a critical need for educators who have little time for themselves, and who desperately need convenient access to quality health care".
