What You Should Know:
– Teladoc Health, announced an expanded partnership with the National Labor Alliance, the largest alliance of labor unions and labor-management coalitions, to offer our full suite of whole-person care services.
– Teladoc’s programs, including the virtual mental health and primary care services launched earlier this year, 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.
Whole Person Approach to Delivery Quality Care
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.
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.
“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.”
