Teladoc Health Is Providing Free Virtual Health Care Services to Florida Residents Impacted by Hurricane Idalia

Accessible Virtual Healthcare Support for Hurricane Idalia-Affected Florida Residents: Teladoc Health Steps In

Teladoc Health, the global leader in whole-person virtual care, is providing free, 24/7 general medical telehealth visits to Florida residents, first responders and others directly impacted by Hurricane Idalia.

Individuals in Florida who have been displaced or who cannot access medical care as a result of the storm can seek treatment from a licensed health care professional for any non-emergency illness by calling Teladoc Health directly at 855-225-5032. Individuals seeking physician-authorization for prescription refills of non-narcotic drugs can also get assistance. For emergencies, patients should call 911.

“We encourage those impacted by the storm to continue to prioritize their health and safety,” said Dr. Jason Tibbels, chief quality officer at Teladoc Health. “Virtual care is a proven solution that supports community health during these times, and we are grateful to provide access to care for those facing devastation and displacement from the storm.”

Among those adult and pediatric conditions that can be effectively diagnosed and treated as part of Teladoc Health’s general medical no-cost offering are common conditions including urinary tract infections, sinus problems, respiratory infections, allergies, cold and flu symptoms, and many other non-emergency illnesses. 

Teladoc Health deploys resources each year to respond to federally declared natural disasters across the United States, making virtual care services available at no cost to communities impacted by floods, storms, fires and other public emergencies.
