- Medical Disclaimer
AMONG OTHER ACTIVITIES, OUR SERVICES MAY ENABLE OR FACILITATE COORDINATION AND COMMUNICATION WITH A HEALTHCARE PROVIDER. THESE SERVICES DO NOT REPLACE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ANY PHYSICIAN OR OTHER HEALTHCARE PROVIDER OR PRACTITIONER. THESE SERVICES MIGHT NOT BE APPROPRIATE FOR ALL MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR CONCERNS. IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, IMMEDIATELY GO TO AN EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT OR DIAL 911.
We believe it is important for every patient to have a local primary care physician (“PCP”). You should not consider any healthcare provider affiliated with Company to be your primary care provider. We strongly encourage you to establish a relationship with a local PCP in your area. The services provided by physicians affiliated with Company are in addition to or as supplementation to, and do not replace, the medical care provided by your PCP. The ultimate responsibility for your overall medical care should remain with your local PCP. Always seek the advice of your personal physician if you have any questions regarding medical conditions or concerns. Company assumes no responsibility or liability for how you use information obtained from this Website or our Services. Before making any decisions regarding your healthcare, ask your PCP and/or mental healthcare professional.
In some cases, a Company-affiliated healthcare provider may use our Services to provide you with medical advice or treatment via telehealth, as further described in Section 3 below. A healthcare provider consulting with you remotely through the Services may not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in-person and observing your physical condition, in each instance. The healthcare provider may, therefore, not be aware of facts or information that may affect his or her opinion regarding a potential diagnosis or treatment recommendation. To reduce the risk to you of this limitation in these Services, Company strongly encourages you to provide all relevant facts and information, and discuss any and all diagnoses and treatment options, with an in-person healthcare provider. Moreover, a healthcare provider made available by Company may be limited by state licensure or other laws when prescribing certain medications to you without first conducting an in-person physical examination. By deciding to engage the Services via telehealth, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of these limitations and agree to assume the risk of these limitations. Furthermore, without limiting any other provision of these Terms, you expressly agree and accept all of the following:
- any diagnosis you may receive from a Company-affiliated healthcare provider is limited and, in some cases, provisional;
- the services of any Company-affiliated healthcare provider are not intended to replace a full medical evaluation or an in-person visit with a healthcare provider, including with your PCP;
- a Company-affiliated healthcare provider may not have important information that is usually obtained through a “hands-on,” in-person physical examination; and
- the absence of an in-person physical examination may affect the Company-affiliated healthcare provider’s ability to diagnose any potential medical condition, disease, or injury.
For more information regarding the healthcare services offered by Company-affiliated healthcare providers utilizing the Services, please visit the relevant Website homepage and follow the appropriate links.
- Services Disclaimer
Company does not provide any medical services, including via the Website and the Services. Company instead provides a technology platform for you to access a healthcare provider we contract with, or similar, affiliated, professional entities, and to obtain access to additional information, which you may or may not choose to utilize in planning your healthcare and wellness. Please visit the relevant Website homepage and follow the appropriate links more information on the health-care providers we work with, as applicable. The health and wellness resources made available through our Services are not a substitute for direct, in-person healthcare services. The decision to focus on diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or both, rests with you and your healthcare providers, including your PCP. You understand that by coordinating, and in certain cases consulting with, our affiliated healthcare providers through the Services, you are not entering into a provider-patient relationship with Company.
By accepting these Terms, you agree and consent to Company and affiliated healthcare providers sending you disclosures, notices, messages, reports, and other communications. It is your responsibility to monitor these communications. You acknowledge and agree you will not hold us or any Company-affiliated health care provider liable for any loss, injury, or claim of any kind resulting from your failure to read these communications or your failure to comply with any treatment recommendations contained in these communications.
- No Surprises Act / Good Faith Estimate
Notwithstanding your relationship with Company, in any healthcare facility or provider relationship, including with a Company-affiliated healthcare provider or with your PCP, you have the right under federal law to receive a good faith estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs, tests, equipment, and hospital fees. Please see here for a further disclosure regarding the “No Surprises Act” and these considerations, or contact us at the below contact information.
“Telehealth” or “telemedicine” is the provision of healthcare services over telecommunication systems, enabling healthcare providers at different physical locations from patients to provide services and share individual patient medical information for the purpose of improving and continuing patient care. Telemedicine may be used for diagnosis, chart review, prescribing, treatment, follow-up or related patient education, and may include but is not limited to:
- Electronic transmission of medical records, test results, photo images, personal health information, synchronous or asynchronous communications, or other data between a patient and healthcare providers;
- Interactions between a patient and healthcare provider via live, two-way audio or video, or data/patient communications;
- Remote evaluation, diagnosis, chart review, prescribing, appointment scheduling, health information sharing, or patient education;
- Interactive audio with store and forward; and
- Use of output data from medical devices, sound, and video files.
The electronic systems used in the Services will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information and imaging data, and will include measures to safeguard the data to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption.
