In the uncertain times of a pandemic and social distancing, seeing a doctor can be rolling the dice to wait in long lines or catch something much worse.
TeleMedOne is a virtual healthcare provider offering unlimited access plans to a board certified doctor in your state from the comfort of your home. This inexpensive way to consult a doctor visit can be much cheaper than even an insurance co-pay.
Members can also now receive an evaluation for COVID-19.
The service is simple: pay $49/month for unlimited calls to a board certified doctor in your state. There are no insurance requirements, no co-pays, no deductibles and no cancellation fees. Members and family get unlimited usage, too.
“The American Medical Association finds up to Nearly 70 percent of doctor, urgent care and ER visits can be safely managed by a telemedicine plan like TeleMedOne,” said TeleMedOne CEO Mike Ellman.
The TeleMedOne doctors include specialists such as cardiologists and pediatricians who can treat up to 50 medical conditions by simply asking the member diagnostic questions. They will diagnose your symptoms and, if needed, electronically send prescriptions to your local pharmacy.
“I recently used the plan when I had an infection. But it wasn’t so urgent that I would have needed to go to the emergency room but it was something I wanted to get taken care of right away before it did get worse’” said a TeleMedOne member.
Doctors are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to speak with or video conference from the comfort of your home, or while travelling.
“Urgent care wasn’t an option: They’re at least an hour away from where we live,” they said. “Working most weekdays 7:00 till 5:00 it’s almost impossible to make a doctor’s appointment without losing hours from work. So the plan was perfect and I thank them for being there and taking my illness seriously.”
Ellman started TelemedOne’s parent company Digital Odeon with the intention of creating a world-class level of service for patients in the Telemed space. Thanks to Ellman’s close relationship with the leadership at MDLive, a leading virtual network of board-certified doctors, he was able to launch MedProtectOne – Digital Odeon’s first successful Telemedicine program six years ago.
TeleMedOne is the newest offering from Digital Odeon to provide affordable, high-quality, virtual medical care to those who need it most. Digital Odeon is based in Woodland Hills, California.
On March 6, 2020, President Trump signed a $8.3 Billion aid package into law to help treat and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, COVID-19. With this money earmarked for the fight to prevent the spread of the virus, the telemedicine industry could get a boost from the federal government.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends being around other people of less distance less than six feet.
“I had what appeared to be a bad cold with a cough. Given all the news of the virus, I was really concerned it could be more than just a bad cold. I don’t have insurance and a trip to the ER would have cost me money I don’t have,” said another TeleMedOne member. “Thanks to my membership, I was able to quickly chat with a licensed doctor. After a video consult, the doctor put my mind at ease that my symptoms were not consistent with the virus and that it was just a bad cold.”
