Telemedicine: A Growing Trend Helping Employers Cut Cost

Posted On: May 16, 2018 | By: Abigail Cutler

When it’s two in the morning and your child is sick, it’s natural to think of a trip to the emergency room as the only way to receive immediate care. But a $300 copay for the ER doesn’t have to be your only option – with the utilization of telemedicine, it can become your last resort.

One of Axion’s strategies to help employers mitigate healthcare costs is introducing telemedicine services to their benefits offerings. Several of our clients provide telemedicine to reduce cost and increase the overall wellness of their employees – and the results are in.

This solution is a cutting edge, innovative approach that is yielding positive results for employers and employees. Telemedicine implementation in 2017 showed savings that ranged from $300 per year for a single employee or more than $1000 per year for a family of four. Not only is telemedicine reducing cost, but its convenience, ease of use, and 24/7 accessibility is creating a healthier and happier work environment.

Axion Risk Management Strategies can assess if this solution would integrate smoothly into your benefits program. We make the process of implementation efficient and transparent, giving you peace of mind and maximum satisfaction.
