Jessica Kim Cohen -

MDLIVE, a Sunrise, Fla.-based telemedicine provider, has contracted with psychiatrists in all 50 states, bringing its behavioral health network to a total of more than 1,300 mental health professionals.

The provider now says it is the first telemedicine company to offer virtual psychiatric services in all U.S. states.

MDLIVE rolled out its virtual behavioral health services in November 2014 after acquiring a company called Breakthrough Behavioral. Since then, MDLIVE has conducted almost 50,000 virtual behavioral health consultations.

"With nearly 80 million Americans living in areas experiencing a mental health professional shortage, we're proud to be the first telemedicine provider to offer individuals across the country access to quality, convenient, private and affordable mental healthcare," said Scott Decker, CEO of MDLIVE.
