Yes! In your virtual visit, physicians providing consultation will discuss your health history and symptoms and can write prescriptions when necessary and in compliance with our prescription policy.
Usually, virtual urgent care physicians will provide prescriptions for products that deliver direct medicinal value like antibiotics and antihistamines and will limit the supply to no more than 30 days. Patients with chronic illnesses should visit their primary care physicians or other specialists for extended care. Providers can also temporarily refill your maintenance medications, for up to 90 days within a 6-month period. Your doctor may require proof of a recent prescription for all refills (e.g., photo of your most recent prescription bottle).
Virtual primary care physicians can also provide prescriptions for some chronic conditions with ongoing treatment plans. Online prescriptions will only be issued if the physician is able to gather the appropriate information to accurately diagnose and treat a given condition. Virtual consultations treat the majority of common medical conditions; however, a small number of cases require an in-person visit or a specialist for complete care.
Behavioral therapists do not provide prescriptions for emotional and mental health concerns, regardless of whether they see patients in person or online. However, the psychiatrists can prescribe medications for behavioral and/or mental health challenges. Only psychiatrist, through Psychiatric medication management service, can prescribe narcotic pain relievers, or other drugs listed as controlled substances by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency or regulated under State law.
Any prescriptions written by our providers will be electronically sent to a local, verified pharmacy for purchase and pick-up.
