Doctor On Demand to Cover Video Visits At No Cost for Those Impacted by Hurricane Florence


Medical Providers Available 24 Hours A Day To Support Patients In
Affected Regions Via Telemedicine

On Demand
, the nation's leading virtual care provider, is extending
support to all those affected by Hurricane Florence. Starting today
through September 30, 2018, Doctor On Demand will provide its medical
services to anyone in the affected regions at no cost.

Focusing on patients first and aiming to be where they are when they
need it, Doctor On Demand has played a critical role in caring for
patients impacted by natural disasters for a number of years. Providing
over 2,000 covered visits during Hurricane Harvey and Irma, as well as
aiding victims from Hurricane Matthew and the California wildfires,
Doctor On Demand offered patients immediate access to medical services
that were inaccessible due to road closures, flooding, and office
closures. Not only does Doctor On Demand provide services at no cost
during emergencies, the practice also increases their physician
coverage, as well as works with local employers and providers to
mobilize its efforts.

"At Doctor On Demand, our priority has always been providing our
patients with immediate access to medical care whenever and wherever
needed, without compromising on quality," said Dr. Ian Tong, Chief
Medical Officer at Doctor On Demand. "During situations such as
Hurricane Florence, this becomes even more important as telemedicine may
be one of the only safe ways for residents to get the medical attention
they need not only during, but also following a storm. We want to ensure
that people know that no matter where they are during these events, we
are providing them with the access to the care they need, without the
worry of costs and healthcare coverage."
