For centuries, getting access to health care in rural parts of the country has been especially difficult. Thanks to telemedicine companies like PlushCare, that reality is changing.

PlushCare connects users to doctors using video chat. It's available in 31 states and counting.

Dr. James Wantuck, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of PlushCare, explains why telemedicine is a more convenient option than visiting a traditional doctor's office. Dr. Wantuck also weighs in on how the potential CVS-Aetna merger could impact the health care industry.
