Teladoc has secured a partnership with CVS Health. The companies said late last week that CVS is rolling out a virtual care offering associated with its retail medical clinic, MinuteClinic. The MinuteClinic video visits will cost $59 and be available 24 hours a day through a mobile phone.
CVS says video visits are for patients age two and older who want to get checked out for minor illnesses, minor injuries, or skin conditions.
Each patient will complete a health questionnaire, then be matched to a board-certified health care provider licensed in their state, who will review the completed questionnaire with the patient’s medical history, and proceed with the video-enabled visit.
“As we continue to move the capabilities of virtual care forward, this is an exciting advancement,” said Jason Gorevic, CEO, Teladoc. “CVS Health’s expansion of their health care model to include video visits brings even more care delivery options to patients and Teladoc is proud to work with them on this offering.”
Teladoc continues to experience significant sales growth. The company, which is based in New York with a significant presence in Lewisville, recorded revenue of $184.2 million during the first six months of 2018. That compares to $87.5 million during the same time frame last year.
