Optum Perks launches new telehealth service

Optum Perks, a prescription discount provider, has launched a new telehealth service that provides affordable healthcare and prescription treatments for conditions such as acne, cough and high blood pressure.

The new service, with a starting cost of $25, allows patients to receive care at any time and can give them access to birth control, cold or flu medication and medication refills, without the need for scheduling or video chat, according to a Jan. 23 news release from Optum Perks. Optum Perks is part of RVO Health, a joint venture between Optum and Red Ventures. 

Patients will be asked to complete a questionnaire regarding their symptoms, which will be forwarded to a board-certified provider. The provider will review the information and offer a diagnosis along with a treatment plan. Additionally, consumers can utilize an Optum Perks discount card to secure the lowest price for any prescribed medication, according to the release.
