First Stop Health telemedicine service offered on TriNet Marketplace

CHICAGO, Feb. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Stop Health announced that its telehealth service is now available via the TriNet Marketplace. The Marketplace is a commerce hub exclusive to clients of TriNet, a national network of some 9,000 companies with more than 240,000 employees.

First Stop Health provides unlimited, 24/7/365 phone and online access to U.S.-based physicians - licensed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia - to employers and consumers. Patrick Spain, co-founder and CEO of First Stop Health, said that with rising healthcare deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses, telemedicine is a perfect match for employees selecting benefits on the TriNet Marketplace.

"We are pleased to offer employees of TriNet's clients a discounted price and a way to save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars by calling our doctors when they - or any of their family members - have medical concerns," Spain said. "Ninety-three percent of calls to our doctors result in avoiding expensive trips to doctors, immediate care facilities or ERs, providing tremendous value to TriNet co-employees selecting plans on Marketplace."

Andrea Sy, TriNet Marketplace manager, said, "Offering First Stop Health on TriNet Marketplace helps us fulfill our mission of providing top quality services and unique offers to our clients.
