Teladoc (TDOC +3.3%) is poised to expand its services in Texas after a six-year legal dispute with the state. Senate Bill 1107 will soon be signed into law validating that a patient-doctor relationship can be established without an in-person visit thereby protecting all forms of telemedicine.

Texas ranks 46 out of 50 states in terms of primary care physicians per capita and 35 of its counties have no family doctor located there.
