Springfield, MO — Group Benefit Services (GBS) is pleased to announce their partnership with Teladoc, Inc.

Through Teladoc, GBS members have the ability to speak directly with Board Certified physicians who are licensed within the member’s state. With wait times approaching 19 days, members require access to physicians for minor acute needs. The average wait time for a Teladoc visit is 10 minutes. Teladoc services are completely integrated within the newly launched GBS web portal. When members log into the GBS web portal, no further sign-on is required to access the Teladoc services.

“GBS Plan Sponsors and members both win as Teladoc users can now consult with a physician for a minor urgent need rather than use costly emergency services,” stated GBS President and CEO James M. Deren. “Many times when it is after hours and an acute episode surfaces, members do not have real options other than high-cost urgent care or ER visits. Teladoc fills the need for the right care at the right price, right now! This service underscores the GBS strategy of reducing overall costs to Plan Sponsors and members by investing in access to high-value quality care services.”

Founded in 2002 Teladoc is the largest and most respected provider of telehealth services in the US and has provided over 8 million members with 24/7 access to telehealth services while maintaining a 95 percent user satisfaction rate.
