Massachusetts, Doctor On Demand to Provide Virtual COVID-19 Related Care to Uninsured During the Pandemic

Doctor On Demand, a virtual care provider, has launched a partnership with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to provide free virtual medical visits to Massachusetts residents without health insurance during the COVID-19 pandemic, the company said.

Doctor On Demand will support uninsured residents who have questions about COVID-19 symptoms or have been identified as needing telehealth care through the state´s COVID-19 contact tracing efforts. This partnership follows a previously announced agreement with MassHealth, the state of Massachusetts´ administrator of Medicaid and children´s health insurance programs, to offer free virtual COVID-19 related visits to the State´s 1.8 million members.

Massachusetts Medicaid members and uninsured residents, including those identified by the contact tracing team, are able to connect with a Doctor On Demand board-certified physician at no cost via live video 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a current average wait time of less than 10 minutes.

Doctor On Demand can be accessed through a smartphone, tablet or computer by downloading the Doctor On Demand app from the App Store or Google Play, or via from a web browser.
