Virtual Office Visits

The consumerism movement in healthcare is changing the way you receive your care.  Today, your able to have a virtual office visit with your doctor.  In the past physicians have not been paid by insurance carriers to treat existing and chronically ill patients with e-visits.  Consumers, insurance carriers and the marketplace have recognized the value and cost effectiveness of this as a patient option.  Several health plans nationally are rolling out e-visits including Aetna, Cigna and WellPoint.  The typical cost for an e-visit is $30-$50.  I see this as a positive step by insurance carriers giving patients another option to access care.   What are your thoughts?
