Amazon Adds Video Telemedicine Visits Nationwide to Its Virtual Clinic

From an AP story by Tom Murphy headlined “Amazon adds video telemedicine visits nationwide to its virtual clinic”:

Amazon is adding video telemedicine visits in all 50 states to a virtual clinic it launched last fall, as the e-commerce giant pushes deeper into care delivery.

Amazon said that customers can visit its virtual clinic around the clock through Amazon’s website or app. There, they can compare prices and response times before picking a telemedicine provider from several options.

The clinic, which doesn’t accept insurance, launched last fall with a focus on text message-based consultations. Those remain available in 34 states. The new video telemedicine option also will be available in Washington, D.C.
