Telemedicine gives you 24/7 access to physicians in your state any time day or night, even on holidays or while you're traveling.
You can consult with these physicians for common ailments such as a cold and even more severe ailments such as a rash or the flu, without ever having to step foot in a doctor's office.
When medically appropriate, telemedicine physicians can also prescribe short-term, non DEA controlled medications and have them sent to the pharmacy of your choice for added convenience. Telemedicine fits your schedule and makes getting back to your normal routine easy.
While telemedicine can be used for a myriad of non-emergency ailments such as allergies, cold and flu, pink eye and urinary tract infections, telemedicine is not to be used for emergency situations. Should an emergency situation arise, call 911.
Check with your specific plan for details on the amount of consults you're allowed per month.
Absolutely! Since traveling can wreak havoc on your immune system, telemedicine is available while you're traveling within the United States.
While telemedicine physicians can write prescriptions and send them to the pharmacy of your choice, prescriptions are at the discretion of your physician and are not guaranteed. Keep in mind that physicians do not write prescriptions for DEA-controlled substances and/or lifestyle drugs.
