How does a medication refill work via telehealth?

With telehealth, you have a way to meet with a health care provider without needing to drive to a doctor’s office or sit in a waiting room. With a quick, convenient video call — which you can take from any location that’s convenient for you — you and The Doctors Office & Walk-In Clinic provider connect. This way, you can discuss your medication and how you’ve been feeling lately. Then, The Doctors Office & Walk-In Clinic provider can send in your medication refill orders so you can pick up your prescription at the pharmacy of your choosing. 

Telehealth medication refill appointments are ideal for people with busy schedules, those who aren’t feeling well enough to drive to the doctor’s office, and people whose doctors can’t offer them an appointment on the timeline needed. If your doctor is overbooked but your medication will run out soon, The Doctors Office & Walk-In Clinicteam gives you a way to get both the health care and the medication you need to feel your best without any gaps in your treatment. 

The Doctors Office & Walk-In Clinic providers can use telehealth appointments to qualify you for a medication refill for any noncontrolled medications. 

What are non-controlled medications?

Non-controlled medications are medications that don’t pose a risk for dependency. Addictive substances like opioids are controlled medications, for example. If you’re not sure if the medication you need is controlled or non-controlled, don’t hesitate to call The Doctors Office & Walk-In Clinic team to ask. 

Who can use telehealth medication refills?

The Doctors Office & Walk-In Clinic team offers telehealth medication refills to individuals who would otherwise have a lapse in their prescription, leaving them without the medication they need. With these virtual appointments, they can check in with you, ensuring your treatment is on track. This allows them to refill your medication sufficiently to sustain you until you’re able to get an appointment with your doctor. 

Telehealth medication refill isn’t designed to replace visits to your doctor. Instead, it’s a supplementary service. The Doctors Office & Walk-In Clinicteam offers it so they can come alongside you and your doctor, ensuring you can get continual care even when your doctor’s office is overbooked.
