Man using smartphoneA recent survey on physician practices during the COVID-19 pandemic revealed that patient volumes are down 65% and will likely remain low in the coming months. Conversely, MedBen saw telehealth increase in utilization and claim costs from February to April.
It’s uncertain as to if there is going to be a surge of patient volumes once the U.S. begins to re-open, or if telehealth use becomes more commonplace. In either case, MedBen will continue to ensure that your plan is only paying the necessary care costs through forensic claims analysis, which saved clients 58% in 2019 (over and above any PPO discounts).
If your plan does not currently offer telehealth services and you would like more information about adding them to your plan, please contact VP of Sales and Marketing Brian Fargus at 888-627-8683.
