Konexial partnership adds telemedicine to My20 suite
Konexial on Monday announced the availability of a new telemedicine service, GoMedRx, available to truckers via the company’s My20 suite of apps. Konexial partnered with Everywhere.Care to develop the service.
GoMedRx is an open platform service and available to all drivers no matter what ELD provider they use. Drivers that subscribe to GoMedRx in the next 6 months will receive 30 days of free service, Konexial say. After that, the service is $15 a month.
“We know how hard—and often impossible—it can be for truck drivers to stop and get the care and/or advice for medical issues both large and small,” said Ken Evans, chief executive officer at Konexial. “With the COVID-19 pandemic (a.k.a. coronavirus) at the top of everyone’s mind for the foreseeable future, GoMedRx will help drivers determine their symptoms quickly and get the care they need not only for themselves but for their families.”
Drivers can use GoMedRx immediately after signing up, and on average can speak to a tele-health physician in 23 minutes, Konexial says. Health insurance is not required to join and use GoMedRx, and there are no bills beyond the subscription for using the service.
“GoMedRx also covers mental health services and counseling,” says Evans. “With isolation and depression being real issues in the trucking industry, GoMedRx makes it easy to talk to a counselor when needed, wherever they might be.”
