How Care on Location is Responding to COVID-19

nottodaycovid19sign

Care on Location is responding to the current pandemic by stepping in to fill the gap in medical care. Many medical offices have closed or reduced hours, and patients are being strongly encouraged to manage their symptoms at home. As a result of this situation, telehealth has become a key solution to provide the care needed while allowing patients to stay at home. At Care on Location, we have over five years of experience providing telemedicine to our patients, and we now – more than ever – are working to expand telehealth in Colorado.

As a patient, you can access our providers directly through our ‘Request Care’ button. We accept Colorado Medicaid at no cost to you. Are you uninsured, or have private insurance with a high cost deductible, our COVID-19 reduced self-pay price of $49.99 is an affordable option. We are open 7 days a week with convenient hours each day. 

With the increase of telehealth utilization by patients, Care on Location has reason to expand. We’ve hired more providers to ensure that as COVID-19 continues to spread, we are prepared to manage higher volumes of patients. 

Our efforts are also being applied on a broader scale across the state. We are currently coordinating with the Office of eHealth Innovation (OeHI) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to address state and community needs. This work has brought changes in state reimbursement and telehealth policy, as well as begun the effort to coordinate a state-wide telehealth response. Stay tuned for more details as we roll out these efforts. Many patients have been trying to connect with their own primary care providers and are being told that they can see them again when the pandemic has resolved and the office reopens. We believe that there is a better answer to this problem. Our software solutions allow any provider to schedule and perform telehealth encounters and have backup through Care on Location when needed. Contact us today to find out more.
