How Postpaid Users Can Phone a Physician With KonsultaMD

Instantly get unlimited access to 24/7 healthcare with ThePLAN

As we approach the one-year mark of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s safe to say we’ve adapted well enough to the new ways of everyday life. When it comes to leaving the house, we have our own routines for trips that are essential and non-essential. Things like supermarket runs are part of the former, but luckily local establishments have found a way to bring this errand online: Groceries can now be delivered straight to your doorstep thanks to technology. It’s a relief to know that now, the same can be said even about health and medical appointments.

Partnering with telehealth service KonsultaMD, Globe Postpaid makes it possible for subscribers to get access to licensed medical professionals. They can consult them anytime, anywhere. No appointments necessary. Access is unlimited.

At KonsultaMD, doctors are online and always on-call. Subscribers can consult them regarding topics ranging from dermatology to dentistry, and surgery to ophthalmology. Covering the bases, KonsultaMD’s services also tackle general medicine, family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, rehabilitation medicine, psychology and psychiatry, among others. (For emergency cases, however, please proceed to your nearest hospital.)

All this is done online, too, so you don’t have to worry about physical attendance, long lines or social distancing. You can meet with your doctor through a video call, receive e-Prescriptions, send e-Lab requests via SMS and even get mental health first-aid support online.
