The doctor is online: Remote video medical exams gain popularity

Remote video medical exams, also called telehealth or e-visits, are offered by a host of companies, including Teladoc Inc., American Well, MDLive Inc., Healthspot and Doctor on Demand. These consultations are growing quickly and increasingly included as a part of benefits packages offered by employers and insurers.

Typically, you’ll pay a fee of roughly $40 to $50 (sometimes less if it’s offered as part of your health benefits) for a 15-minute visit with a board-certified, state-licensed physician.
