Nine in 10 employers plan to offer telehealth services to their workers next year, if the state allows — up from 70% this year, according to a new National Business Group on Health survey.

“Employers’ focus in 2017 is shifting away from plan design to optimizing how healthcare is accessed and delivered,” NBGH president and CEO Brian Marcotte said. “That translates into expanded telehealth services, more Centers of Excellence options and optional selective network choices that focus on providing higher quality health care.”
