The Advantages of Using an Insurance Broker

There is an important difference between insurance agents and insurance brokers. Agents look for individuals who want health coverage. They then offer these individuals their company policies. Insurance brokers, on the other hand, acts as a representative for the individual and seeks to serve their best interest by finding their best options.

This means a broker will help you to identify your individual or family needs when it comes down to the most affordable health care coverage. This allows you to make the best decision for your insurance protection. In other words, a broker can help you get the best plan, and save you money.

The Benefits of Telemedicine During COVID-19

During the COVID-19 global pandemic, telemedicine is proving to be an effective and sustainable solution. Because telemedicine allows health care practitioners to assess, diagnose, and treat patients at a distance using the latest in telecommunications technology, it promotes prevention and precaution. It also offers a means of offering medical advice while stemming the spread of the coronavirus.

Telemedicine creates a bridge between individuals and their physicians that gives everyone an opportunity to talk to a doctor from the comfort of their own home. This is especially important right now for people who are self-quarantined with symptoms of the coronavirus. Not only does this help reduce the spread of COVID-19 to the general public but it also helps to protect medical staff on the front lines. Many hospitals are already using telemedicine to diagnose and treat quarantined patients infected with COVID-19.

During the coronavirus public health emergency, the HHS has made it much easier for practitioners to provide telemedicine services to provide care for:

  • COVID-19 monitoring

  • Routine health care

  • Wellness consultations

  • Dermatology

  • Medication consultations

  • Nutrition counseling

  • Mental health counseling

Health care practitioners may provide telemedicine services to patients using the following remote technologies:

  • Skype

  • Zoom

  • FaceTime

  • Facebook Messenger

  • Google Hangouts

When you use these encrypted platforms, you can rest assured that your telehealth visit is private and secure. The quality of care provided will be just as high as you would expect from an in-person visit.

In many states, insurance companies voluntarily pay for telemedicine services. In fact, 26 U.S. states have laws that require them to do so. Medicare and Medicaid also cover certain types of telehealth services.
