Gaining access to healthcare services on the road can be very challenging. RVers are often hundreds of miles from their primary care provider. 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 can help!
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.
According to Forbes Magazine, Telemedicine was the Top Health Trend for 2014 predicting a 56% growth through 2018.
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.
Your Careington Telemedicine membership includes all of this…
- Telemedicine from TELADOC: Teladoc is a national network of U.S. board-certified, and state-licensed physicians who use electronic health records, telephonic consultations and online video consultations to diagnose conditions, recommend treatment and write short-term, non-DEA controlled prescriptions when medically appropriate. Physicians are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, allowing you and your family convenient access to quality care from home, work, or on-the-go as opposed to more expensive and time consuming alternatives like the doctor’s of ce or emergency room. Teladoc has the largest independent physician network in telehealth. To ensure high quality physicians, Teladoc credentials their physicians every two years. Their physicians are also subject to a 10% random audit, which far exceeds NCQA standards.
