Prescription Refills Q & A

How do I get prescription refills?

TeleMDs board-certified physicians offer virtual consultations using an easily accessible video chat platform through your computer or smartphone. They can evaluate your specific medical needs and existing treatment to determine if you need a new medication or a prescription refill.

Following a comprehensive evaluation of your health, the physicians can prescribe necessary medications and submit them to your pharmacy for pickup at your convenience.

What prescription refills are available?

The TeleMDs staff includes experienced physicians who can request refills on a variety of medications. Some of the prescriptions they can refill virtually include medications for treating and managing chronic diseases like:

  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure

For your safety, you can’t refill controlled substances, contraceptives, or narcotics through the TeleMDs virtual prescription refill services.

What can I expect during my prescription refill consultation?

Before the TeleMDs physicians can request a prescription refill at your pharmacy, they meet with you one-on-one through an online video chat. You can expect to discuss your medical history, your existing health, and any new symptoms you’re having.

Your provider also needs a current list of medications and supplements you’re taking to prevent conflicts and reduce your risk for additional health complications.

Your TeleMDs provider is likely to request a follow-up visit through a virtual video chat to monitor the effectiveness of your treatment. If necessary, the physicians can make changes to your prescription or dosage to ensure your condition is under control.

What are the benefits of telemedicine prescription refills?

If you’re not able to connect with your primary care physician to arrange a prescription refill, the TeleMDs team can provide you with necessary medication refills to keep you on track with your treatment.

TeleMDs virtual prescription services are also beneficial if you have new symptoms that need treatment. After a virtual sick visit or urgent care evaluation with the board-certified physicians, you have access to necessary medications so you can begin your treatment right away.

The providers work with your preferred pharmacy to make pickup easy and convenient. You can also schedule follow-up telemedicine visits to evaluate the progress of your treatment without having to leave your house.
