Nemours began to offer access to its CareConnect Friday afternoon.

Families can access the service at the CareConnect website or through the Nemours CareConnect app on Google Play and the Apple App Store.

The normal charge for the service will be waived for families in Florida with coupon code Irma.

In August, Nemours offered complimentary CareConnect visits to families in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Florida Hospital is offering residents free access to its urgent care providers with no appointment necessary. The virtual visits are typically $49 but through Sept. 12, Florida Hospital is offering the service for free.
