MDLive provides free telemedicine services to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey

MDLive, a Sunrise, Fla.-based telemedicine provider, is offering free remote visits to individuals impacted by Hurricane Harvey between Aug. 25 and Sept. 8.

Individuals in cities along the Gulf Coast in Texas and Louisiana have access to one free nonemergency medical visit. To access the one-time service, an individual may schedule a phone or video visit at no charge by calling MDLive at 888-959-9516 and providing the code "HARVEY."

"Hurricanes may make it more difficult or even impossible for some people to obtain health services at a physical location," according to an MDLive media advisory. "Damage to roads, public and private transportation and facilities are potential barriers to people who need to connect with a board-certified doctor."
