When you have a major medical issue, you may want to see a health professional in person. However, there are many times when concern about a minor condition or a follow-up appointment could be handled with a brief consult. These days, more medical offices are using Telemedicine to lower the costs of patient care.
For a Christian Health Care Sharing Ministry such as OneShare Health, it is important to lower the burden of medical costs on the community of Members. Telemedicine involves consulting with a health care professional over the phone or through an online video appointment with a 100% Shared Consult Fee for OneShare Health Members. While this tool will not work for every situation, it can lower the costs of managing chronic conditions or following up on previous appointments.
By using Telemedicine, health care offices can interact with more patients on a daily basis, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And, since there are fewer in-person follow-up visits, they can see patients with urgent, but not emergency, issues sooner.
Members of healthshare programs like OneShare Health benefit from Telemedicine by saving both time and money. Telemedicine consults cost less than an in-person appointment and patients can also avoid the inconvenience of missing work and traveling to a medical office.
OneShare Health seeks to provide affordable health care solutions to our Members. For more information about the features of our programs and how to enroll, contact us today or click below to view our programs!
