During a virtual consult on HealthTap, you may or may not receive a prescription.
The following types of prescriptions do not belong in the HealthTap Prime formulary and thus cannot be prescribed in our system:
- DEA Schedule I-V medications
- State-regulated medications
- Psychiatric medications (except for established patients in HealthTap Concierge)
- Lifestyle medications (e.g. Viagra, Weight-loss meds, Birth control, etc.)
Note: "Even if you believe you need a prescription or lab test, you should not expect a prescription or lab test order from any given consult." It is up to the attending physician's professional discretion to decide which treatment(s) are medically necessary and relevant
