Venture capitalists, recognizing the opportunity, are investing in telemedicine startups.

My Aetna PPO plan automatically comes with Telemedicine!!!  I can also sell it separately.  Call me:  Elaine (704-891-2274)

The number of doctors licensed in every state is still exceedingly small: only 14 in 2018. But the number will only increase as telemedicine grows.(Photo: Shutterstock)

As telemedicine goes mainstream, some doctors are seizing the opportunity to treat patients thousands of miles away.

An increasing number of physicians are choosing to focus their practices entirely on telemedicine. In order to maximize their reach, they are getting licensed in multiple states –– sometimes every state.

Venture capitalists have noted the opportunity and are investing in telemedicine startups. Some startups consist of just a few doctors who are licensed in all 50 states.
