Gaining access to healthcare services on the road can be very challenging. RVers are often hundreds of miles from their primary care provider. That’s where Telemedicine can help.
Many of us like to seek out remote or unfamiliar areas to camp and that often puts us many miles from any healthcare provider at all. Some RVers likely put off seeking medical attention simply because of the inconvenience factor of finding a provider that we can trust! Furthermore, many of us simply don’t go to the doctor because we don’t want to pay the high costs of an urgent care visit, office visit, or even ER visit.

Telemedicine is the use of phones, apps, emails, and computers to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration. Telehealth is an innovative way for patients to communicate with health care providers and possibly receive care, diagnoses, or prescriptions without having to walk into a waiting room.
Telemedicine is an ideal fit for RVers! With high deductibles and shrinking networks becoming the norm in the health insurance industry, belonging to a telemedicine program can help bridge the gap between needing care and having coverage for us. The American Medical Association (AMA) states that 70% of doctor’s office visits can be handled over the phone and 50% of ER visits are non-emergencies.
How it works
Prescriptions – Teladoc doctors are U.S. board-certified and licensed to practice medicine in the state you call from. They can diagnose, treat and prescribe medication if medically necessary. When you request to speak with a doctor, they’ll ask you where you’d like any prescription to be sent; they’ll even help you find a pharmacy near you when you’re traveling.
Teladoc doctors can diagnose many health issues like cold and flu symptoms, allergies, rash, skin problems and so much more!
