SSQ Life Insurance Co. Inc. is partnering with digital health-care provider Dialogue to provide its employees and insured plan members with same-day access to health professional services through video conference.

The services include video consultations with general practitioners, live chats with nurses, prescriptions and renewals, as well as referrals to specialists. Adding the Dialogue platform to its group insurance offering emphasizes the importance of modernizing employee benefits to meet the needs of today’s workforce, noted a press release from SSQ Insurance.
