Telemedicine and Telehealth
Telehealth has emerged as a major player in the healthcare landscape. It promises more convenience when it comes to connecting patients and medical practitioners, especially in areas where access to healthcare facilities may be difficult. It’s also a more affordable alternative to an in-person healthcare visit; patients can save anywhere from 10% to 15% when they connect with their doctors virtually instead of in-person.
Sometimes, the terms “telehealth” and “telemedicine” are used interchangeably, but in reality, telemedicine has a narrower focus than telehealth. Telemedicine refers specifically to remote clinical services only.
There is no question the use of telehealth is increasing and it is being embraced and adopted by more patients and clinicians alike.
Telehealth costs are often covered with health sharing plans. See if the program you are interested in covers telehealth. Then see if health sharing is right for you.
