KDHE and GoGetDoc to Collaborate to Simplify Access to COVID-19 Antiviral Prescriptions

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) announced today that it is collaborating with GoGetDoc to simplify your 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. Kansans can now visit the GoGetDoc website to complete an initial screening to see if they are eligible.

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. 

Kansans who need more support may email [email protected] with questions.
