MDLIVE has acquired Silicon Valley-based Breakthrough Behavioral to solidify its market leadership as the largest teletherapy and telehealth provider in the U.S. Moreover, with this purchase, MDLIVE will be able to better address the growing demand for online therapy and make it more efficient for payers, health systems and employers to offer services to their patients.
MDLIVE offers consumers the decision support tools and services for greater access to immediate care. The company has a selected group of high quality clinicians that provide treatment through a secure, online video platform, or by phone and email, available through health plans, employer groups, health systems, or directly to consumers.
“With Breakthrough, we will expand the breadth of our offerings and our geographic footprint, and enhance our presence in the telebehavioral market,” said Randy Parker, CEO of MDLIVE. “This combination strengthens our ability to serve patients across the spectrum of medical and behavioral health care.”
Breakthrough on its end offers teletherapy solutions in the insurance payer, health plan and employer markets, offering services to Commercial, Medicaid, and private pay consumers. It is currently available in ten states across the country, with five million members through existing customer contracts, and plans to expand nationally.
