KDHE and GoGetDoc to simplify access to COVID-19 antiviral prescriptions

TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) announced today that it is collaborating with GoGetDoc to simplify access to COVID-19 antiviral prescriptions.

GoGetDoc is offering reduced-price telehealth visits for those with a positive COVID-19 test in an effort to make oral antiviral treatment (Paxlovid and Lagevrio) more accessible to vulnerable communities.

Regular visits with a primary care provider are important for maintaining quality health. By visiting the GoGetDoc website, Kansans have another option to assist them.

Patients with a positive COVID-19 test and mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 will meet virtually with a Kansas doctor to discuss treatment options, including Paxlovid and Lagevrio.

Oral antiviral therapy for COVID-19 is authorized for people ages 12 and older who weigh more than 88 pounds.
