Many people want to know if they can get a prescription with our program, here is the answer.

1-800MD physicians have access to an extensive list of medications that can be prescribed when appropriate during a telephone or video consultation. No medications will be prescribed through an email consultation.

Physician prescribed medications are e-prescribed directly to a members pharmacy of choice for local pick up or shipped by mail order pharmacy directly to a member’s home or office.

In the event that a physician does prescribe medications, he/she will usually limit the supply to no more than thirty days. Patients with chronic illnesses should visit their primary care physician (PCP) or other specialists.

1-800MD physicians will not prescribe medications for substances that are controlled by the DEA, or may have the potential for harm, misuse, or addiction as part of a medical consultation.

How does it work?

Nothing complicated, first you join the program, and then we need a health history form for each person in your household (the same form you fill out when you get a new doctor), but this is created one time and stored with 1-800MD in their secure computer systems.   Now you are set, if you or anyone in the family gets sick you call the office (no business hours, you call when you want to).  The office takes the call and gets some basic details from you.  You can hang up and continue with life, while we get the doctor coordinated and up to speed on your situation, guaranteed within 2 hours, but usually within one hour you will get a call back from your doctor for the consultation.  If appropriate the doctor will e-prescribe your prescription to your preferred pharmacy.  All this information will be updated in your health history and you are on your way to getting better and feeling better.
