Tele-Naloxone is a partnership between the Iowa Division of Public Health and University of Iowa Health Care.
These organizations understand that you might not be comfortable asking for naloxone from your family doctor, a local pharmacy or a community organization; and that's okay.
With this program you will simply visit with a pharmacist by tele-medicine, directly from your smart phone or laptop, and get FREE naloxone delivered to your door.
The purpose of the Tele-Naloxone program is to prepare Iowans by providing them a naloxone kit in advance of a possible overdose. In the event of an urgent need for naloxone due to an overdose occurring, please seek emergency medical services and call 911.
How does it work?
Then, we'll work with you to set up a video visit.
Next, chat with a pharmacist during your video visit to request naloxone.
Then, you will receive a naloxone kit in the mail at no cost to you!
If you use your naloxone, just call back to schedule an appointment and get another free kit!
This service is always free to you. Your participation is confidential.
Your insurance will not be billed for your visit or your naloxone.
This is possible with support from the Iowa Division of Public Health.
