WOONSOCKET, R.I. – CVS Health has launched MinuteClinic Video Visits on a Teladoc platform for patients with minor illnesses and injuries, skin conditions and other wellness needs.
“At CVS Health, we’re committed to delivering high-quality care when and where our patients need it and at prices they can afford,” said Troyen Brennan, executive vice president and chief medical officer at CVS Health, in a statement. “Through this new telehealth offering, patients now have an additional option for seeking care that is even more convenient for them.”
Leveraging Teladoc’s telehealth platform, patients can receive care through a MinuteClinic Video Visit, initiated through the CVS Pharmacy app. Patients will experience the same high-quality, evidence-based care they receive at traditional MinuteClinic locations inside select CVS Pharmacy and Target stores, said Brennan.
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.
“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,” said Jason Gorevic, CEO of Teladoc, in a statement.
The service is currently available in Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Virginia andWashington D.C., and is expected to be available nationwide, where allowed, by the end of the year.
