Atlanta-based MedZed sends a nurse to a patient’s home to do a preliminary exam. Then the nurse connects via laptop with a doctor who provides a treatment plan remotely. Several Atlanta practices use MedZed as a way to offer patients extended hours without having to keep their offices open.
Most of the services don’t accept insurance, but they say patients can pay with health savings accounts or submit out-of-network claims.
