COVID-19 Could Prompt Employers to Offer Telemedicine Health Benefits Plans

By Ann E. Murray

Daily Report

In an article published in the Daily Report, Atlanta partner Ann E. Murray discusses changes in health benefits as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and advises employers on what to do as the work force continues to work fully remote.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a significant change in how health care is delivered,” explains Murray. “While telemedicine has been around for more than a decade, it took the pandemic to get Main Street America to give it a try and to push the federal and state governments to allow more flexibility in its delivery.”

Murray advises employers to contact their insurance providers to add telemedicine as a part of their medical benefits, if they don’t already offer this to employees.

Additionally, Murray says, “Those who have existing wellness programs may want to  broaden them to adopt rewards focused on lessening the impact of the pandemic on the employer’s workforce, such as using face masks and sanitizers, temperature monitoring, and getting the vaccine once it is available. Virtual counseling, meditation, or mindfulness may help employees deal with the emotional and mental health impact of the pandemic. The 11th annual Health and Well-Being Survey from Fidelity Investments and Business Group on Health reported that 95% of employers around the globe now include emotional and mental health programs in their corporate well-being platforms.”
