Teladoc Health is Providing Free Virtual Health Care Services to New Mexico Residents Impacted by Wildfires

PURCHASE, NY, June 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teladoc Health (NYSE: TDOC), the global leader in whole-person virtual care, is providing free, 24/7 general medical telehealth visits to New Mexico residents, first responders and others directly impacted by the devastating wildfires.

Individuals in New Mexico who have been displaced or who cannot access medical care as a result of the fires 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 fires to continue to prioritize their health and safety, especially as patients may experience wildfire-induced flare ups of chronic illnesses, such as asthma,” said Dr. Vidya Raman-Tangella, chief medical 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 as New Mexico rebuilds and recovers from the fires.”

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.
