Fringe and RelyMD Announce New Partnership

DURHAM, N.C. – (July 10, 2020) – RelyMD, a digital health company that provides coordinated telehealth care, is pleased to announce a new integration with lifestyle benefits platform, Fringe. Through its MYidealDOCTOR brand, Fringe members will now have an easy and affordable way to access a doctor – anytime, anywhere, using Fringe flexible spending dollars offered through their employers’ benefits package. Now, more than ever, consumers want convenient, affordable access to medical care, without the hassle of appointments and long wait times. 

RelyMD makes it easy for anyone to speak with a doctor. Available 24/7, patients can connect via video or phone through the mobile app or web browser. MYidealDOCTOR’s care coordinator call center ensures medical resolution and successful patient outcomes through follow up calls, a unique benefit not offered by most telehealth services.

Fringe offers more than 100+ lifestyle benefits to employees via companies that want to provide freedom, flexibility, and choice when it comes to choosing the perks and benefits that they value. Employers give their employees flexible spending dollars to use on the Fringe platform, where they can shop from top companies like Headspace, Babbel, Blinkist, Shipt, Netflix, and RelyMD.

“Progressive organizations understand the healthcare needs of their employees and families are changing rapidly. More than ever, employees are trying to balance the many demands on their time,” said David Levin, RelyMD CEO. “We’re excited to partner with Fringe to bring convenient telemedicine services to employees across the US.”

“Companies are searching to offer their employees patient-centered care that they can access from the comfort of their homes.  This has never been more true than now,” said Chris Luhrman, Fringe VP of Operations.  “The uniting of RelyMD & MYidealDOCTOR signifies a game-changing merge for the telemedicine industry.  Fringe is delighted to partner with this powerhouse combination for our employer clients.”

In addition to improving healthcare outcomes, telehealth is a value-add for organizations hoping to reduce their healthcare spend at a time when annual increases are the norm.
