Teladoc offering free virtual care to Kentucky flood victims

Teladoc will offer free general medical telehealth visits to individuals affected by the Kentucky flood.

The virtual care services will be offered free of charge for conditions including sinus problems, respiratory infections, allergies, cold and flu symptoms, and many other non-emergency illnesses, according to a July 30 press release.

The company said individuals seeking physician-authorization for prescription refills of non-narcotic drugs can also get assistance via their virtual care services.  

"As communities seek to navigate the impact of unprecedented flooding, we want to make sure that those faced with devastation and displacement are keeping their health front and center and know how to get care," said Vidya Raman-Tangella, MD, chief medical officer of Teladoc. "Virtual care is a proven solution that supports community health during these times, as residents from evacuated areas continue to seek necessary care when healthcare facilities and providers may also be affected and unable to meet all care needs."
