SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading on-demand video medicine provider Doctor On Demand today announced that it will cover the cost of mental health visits to its members in support of Mental Health Awareness Month. Each year, one in five adults in America will experience a mental health condition; and in part due to lack of access to care, more than half of those affected won’t receive professional treatment. Among the most prevalent mental health issues are stress, anxiety and depression — affecting over 100 million Americans and nearly 50% of the American adult population.
Starting today through May 31st, Doctor On Demand will cover the cost of a visit with a board-certified physician to provide an assessment and treatment recommendation for those suffering from chronic stress, anxiety, and depression. Members can enter the code LIVELIFEWELL to receive a credit covering the cost of a medical video visit. Members can choose from an on-demand visit or schedule an appointment with a board-certified physician at a time most convenient to them.
“Similar to the primary care setting where almost half of all doctors visits for depression are treated, our medical doctors currently work with patients to address these issues every day,” said Dr. Ian Tong, Chief Medical Officer at Doctor On Demand. “Our clinical team is committed to delivering compassionate care through active listening that informs our customized treatment plans. We are proud of the access to care we are able to provide our patients.”
Doctor On Demand’s board-certified physicians are available on-demand in under 5 minutes or by appointment. The service is available for anyone to use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To access Doctor On Demand, download the app (iTunes or Google Play) or create an account on the website. Once registered, patients can enter code LIVELIFEWELL to redeem their visit.
