Teladoc Health Improves Access to Whole-Person Care Through an Expanded Partnership with National Labor Alliance
National Labor Alliance expands exclusive relationship with Teladoc Health, provides full-suite of whole-person care services
PURCHASE, NY, Dec. 16, 2021 –Teladoc Health (NYSE: TDOC), the global leader in whole-person virtual care, today announced an expanded partnership with the National Labor Alliance of Health Care Coalitions (NLA), the largest alliance of labor unions and labor management coalitions, to offer its full suite of virtual care products and services. Teladoc Health’s general medical, specialty care, mental health, expert medical services, chronic condition management, and virtual primary care programs will now be available as part of the exclusive endorsement to the NLA’s Coalitions, their member Funds and their six million members across all 50 states.
The comprehensive offering creates a whole person approach to deliver quality, cost effective healthcare that Labor Fund Leadership can provide to their members with a high degree of confidence that care outcomes will be improved and healthcare costs reduced. As part of the full-suite of services, members will have access to both myStrength Complete and Primary 360 – two services launched by Teladoc Health in 2021 offering full spectrum stepped-care mental health support and virtual primary care respectively.
“Teladoc Health’s whole-person virtual care services are ideal for Labor members as leaving work for medical care is consequential: the member isn’t paid for hours lost, those lost hours don’t count towards eligibility and it affects employer contributions to the health and welfare Fund,” said Lou Malzone, managing director of the National Labor Alliance. “There is also no other entity able to provide the depth and breadth of services through both a single contract and a single mobile application for members.”
The National Labor Alliance first partnered with Teladoc Health in 2016 for the company’s Expert Medical Services, and as the member organization experienced clear value from that offering expanded the endorsement in 2020 to include general medical, dermatology and mental health services.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with the National Labor Alliance as they fully embrace the value of whole-person virtual care to help reduce costs, expedite access to care and improve overall quality of care,” said Kelly Bliss, president of US Group Health at Teladoc Health.
