Can you get a prescription without going to the doctor’s office? The answer today is yes. Just like there’s an app for nearly any imaginable need out there these days, healthcare has been expanded beyond the bounds of brick and mortar facilities and placed into our hands.
Many minor conditions require just one simple visit to receive the necessary treatment, which can easily be done online. Some of those conditions include mental health concerns, or dermatological issues (e.g. acne). Birth control and refill prescriptions for chronic conditions are also treatable with telemedicine.
The benefits of getting your prescription from an online doctor include:
You won’t even need to get out of bed. Whether you are chatting with a provider online or consulting over a phone or video call, leaving the house is not part of your doctor’s visit.
You will save a bit of gas, and time away from work—meaning that it saves you money in more than one way. Also, many online consultations cost less than in-person consultations.
The cost-effectiveness of telehealth compounds as well. You save money by treating smaller problems quickly instead of waiting for things to get better—or worsen. The average E.R. trip in the United States costs $500, however, an online consultation package like the ones at WebDotors.com starts at a mere $39.95. That’s quite a difference that your wallet will thank you for.
Even if you aren’t close to a specialist who can address your concern, an online doctor’s visit is the only prerequisite before your prescription is sent to your preferred pharmacy.
