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, hasÂ launchedÂ 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 toÂ screen patientsÂ for COVID-19 symptoms and make recommendations on next steps. While their goal is to keep patients who donâ€™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 youÂ try eitherÂ of these providers.
