UnitedHealthcare moves forward with telemedicine

UnitedHealthcare recently announced a partnership with three telemedicine companies to cover video-based doctor visits just as it covers in-person visits. The technology sector has for decades predicted that we would one day get our medical care via video chat, but it wasn't until recently that some physicians started considering using telemedicine. This decision may be a sign that the technology is becoming more mainstream. For now, these virtual visits will be available only to UnitedHealth’s self-funded customers, but the feature will expand to most members by next year (Source: “Video Is About to Become the Way We All Visit the Doctor,” Wired.com, April 30, 2015).
