What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine services allow OneShare Health Members to consult a physician by phone or video chat, 24/7, and the Consult Fee is 100% Shared.

Telemedicine is a tool provided by DialCare for convenient medical care that can serve as your first line of defense when it comes to acute medical needs. By using Telemedicine, health care offices can interact with more patients on a daily basis, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.


Telemedicine services are a key part of every Membership Program of OneShare's Health Care Sharing Ministry. If you have access to a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop and a reliable internet connection, you can be face to face, or phone to phone, with a physician in no time!

Initially, Telemedicine was created to treat patients who lived in areas with a shortage of medical care professionals, or that were far away from local health facilities. Today, Telemedicine is still used in these instances, but it's steadily becoming a tool for convenient medical care. Telemedicine allows you to connect with a medical provider via phone, so there's less time spent in waiting rooms, and you can get immediate attention for minor but urgent conditions. 

However, it is important to note that Telemedicine Services are intended to treat non-emergency conditions. As always, in case of a life-threatening emergency, you should dial 911, immediately.

If you’d like more information regarding Telemedicine, contact Member Support by phone at (833) 546-4478, Monday through Friday, 7am – 7pm CST, we’re ready to assist you!
