Cue Health Cue Care

Cue Health has launched its Cue Care service via its Cue Health application, which allows users who test positive for COVID-19 using Cue's tests to consult virtually with a healthcare provider about their test result and obtain a prescription for medication, if needed, to treat the virus. Users can get the prescription delivered to their homes or pick it up from a pharmacy. Cue said that within a few weeks, the service will be expanded to people who test positive on any COVID-19 test, including an at-home antigen test. The service costs between $79 and $99 and includes the telehealth visit and delivery of the medication.
