Teche Action Clinic has new additions to service that can aid in the delivery of healthcare and assist patients in adhering to the state-wide mandate of sheltering in place to slow the spread of the Coronavirus.

Telemedicine: Patients can receive quality healthcare from the convenience of home as Teche Action Clinic is now offering Telehealth Services to all patients. The services are offered through a free and secure ELVI App, which can be found on Google Play or the Apple Store. Utilizing ELVI, a patient can conduct video sessions with a licensed provider, make appointments for doctors or get consultations online. To schedule a Telehealth visit, call (337) 828-2550.

Free Pharmacy Delivery: Teche Action Clinic now offers free delivery of certain prescriptions for patients located in the Franklin and Houma Area. To request delivery, patients can contact the pharmacy at (337) 828-2550 ext. 2118 or 2119 (Franklin) or (985) 851-1717 ext. 5126 (Houma).

Walk-Ins: They are still accepting walk-in patients, but ask that you contact the facility prior to your arrival so they can perform a pre-screening by asking "COVID-19 Increased Screening" questions. If you think you are symptomatic (develop fever, or if symptoms progress from mild to severe), let them know so that they can ensure proper isolation protocols are implemented upon arrival.
