COVID-19 Free Telehealth Assessments
Although we have not tried any telehealth providers, there are two promising sounding free options:
Ro, the direct-to-consumer telehealth startup, has launched a free online telehealth assessment for COVID-19. Those who think they may be experiencing signs or symptoms of the novel coronavirus can complete an online assessment, which will then be reviewed by a physician. If appropriate, the company will connect that patient with a medical provider for a free consultation.
American Well, an urgent care telehealth company, is offering to screen patients for COVID-19 symptoms and make recommendations on next steps. While their goal is to keep patients who don’t need to be hospitalized away from waiting rooms, American Well also coordinates with hospitals to help sicker and higher-risk patients.
Let us know if you try either of these providers.
