Top 3 Telemedicine Companies for 2022

Telemedicine, or telehealth, companies allow individuals to see doctors and other medical professionals remotely via telephone, video call, and computer. The COVID-19 pandemic increased demand for virtual healthcare and Congress loosened rules on using telehealth services under the U.S. Medicare program.

As of 2022, the American Medical Association (AMA) is working to permanently extend telehealth coverage and payment and to ensure communities across the country can continue to access virtual care.

Large, publicly-traded health services companies such as UnitedHealth Group Inc. (UNH) and Humana Inc. (HUM) have added telemedicine, however, companies that solely provide a full spectrum of care powered by technology and data to improve health continue to emerge.

Teladoc Health (TDOC) was the first pioneer in the field to list on the New York Stock Exchange in 2015 and as of Dec. 15, 2022, three telemedicine companies emerged leaders in the virtual healthcare industry.
