With Client Portal, companies with fewer than 5,000 members can offer 98point6 to employees in as little as a day. This will come in handy for employees looking for speedy medical advice and treatment in the era of COVID-19. The new offering comes in response to employers experiencing, on average, eight times higher utilization of the 98point6 service than with their previous, traditional telemedicine solutions.
