Sunrise, Fla., Aug. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MDLIVE Inc., which is focused on delivering high-quality, convenient, cost effective virtual medical, dermatological, and behavioral health care, today announced it is offering free virtual health visits to individuals affected by the California wildfires. This program is another part of the MDLIVEcares initiative introduced earlier this year that reflects the company’s commitment to making sure people have uninterrupted access to medical and health professionals, especially during challenging times.
California residents impacted by the current wildfires can call a dedicated MDLIVE hotline at 888-959-9516 and provide the code Cali18 to schedule their first consultations. All sessions after this will be conducted via telephone or video, enabling individuals to select what is easiest for access. This virtual health offering is available via MDLIVE’s online medical network for the diagnosis and treatment of common health problems, such as respiratory issues, as well as non-emergency dermatological ailments and behavioral issues.
“Our first responsibility is to help people receive the health care they need,” said Rich Berner, Chief Executive Officer of MDLIVE. “We understand the challenges Californians are facing with the wildfires and want to make sure that their access to medical and health professionals is made as easy as possible – and at no cost to them. The MDLIVE family nationwide has experienced, and responded to, many natural disasters such as hurricanes as well as other physically and emotionally challenging events. This led us to introduce an initiative called MDLIVEcares, which we designed to equip health systems, insurance companies, large employers and school systems with instant-on capabilities to mobilize virtual health services. We will continue to develop this to best serve our clients and the people in the communities in which we operate.”
MDLIVE was founded on the principle that healthcare should be simple, fast and uncomplicated. Since 2009, the company has remained steadfast in its mission to deliver high-quality, convenient and cost-efficient care to patients and organizations across the United States.
