KonsultaMD health hotline now accessible from all PH telecom networks

To provide more access to licensed and professional doctors who give immediate attention to its members, Global Telehealth announced that its 24/7 hotline service – KonsultaMD is now accessible from all telecom operators in the country.

Globe has invested in Global Telehealth to provide medical services to the consumers, while Global Telehealth also took aggressive steps to be able to move beyond what their customers need by offering KonsultaMD services to other telco networks nationwide.

“KonsultaMD has always been about helping address the healthcare pain points of the Philippines. All of us, regardless of the network we choose, experience these pain points. Hence, it makes sense to make KonsultaMD services available to all,” Maridol Ylanan, CEO of Global Telehealth, Inc., said.

To access KonsultaMD, simply call 79880 for mobile or (02) 798 8000 for landline. Globe Postpaid customers only need to pay a fee of PhP 150 a month to avail KonsultaMD services which can be used by up to four additional members. Globe Prepaid and TM customers, meanwhile, have the option to subscribe for an individual membership by paying PhP 15 a week or PhP 60 monthly.

Customers of other networks can now subscribe to KonsultaMD by simply logging on to www.konsulta.md, where they can fill out an online application form. Subscription payments can be made via Visa, MasterCard, GCash, BancNet or SMART Money.

Immediately and directly, members of KonsultaMD can speak to a licensed Filipino doctor regarding their health concerns. Inquiries about health-related issues include, but are not limited to maternity, pediatrics and primary conditions like fever, rashes, and allergies. Callers may also inquire about matters pertaining to health coaching, nutrition counselling, permissible medication and even laboratory results.

Calls from Globe landlines nationwide and calls within Metro Manila via landline are free.  Calls from Globe or TM mobile numbers are charged a special call rate of Php1 per minute while non-Globe customers pay the standard mobile and NDD rates.
