2. San Francisco-based Doctor On Demand extended its medical services to those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana at no cost through Sept. 8.
3. Miami-based EpicMD engaged its partner charities to connect victims in Houston with its remote medical care services at no cost.
4. Sunrise, Fla.-based MDLive offered individuals in cities along the Gulf Coast in Texas and Louisiana access to one free nonemergency medical visit between Aug. 25 and Sept. 8.
5. Purchase, N.Y.-based Teladoc provided free remote visits to individuals in Hurricane Harvey evacuation areas, including displaced residents who were not members of Teladoc.
