Today you are requesting Teladoc’s telemedicine services (“Services”). Telemedicine is the practice of medicine that involves the use of electronic communications to diagnose or treat patients who are in different locations from their healthcare providers. Telemedicine can be used for diagnosing, treating, and prescribing medication.
When using the Services, you will be treated by and will enter into a clinician-patient relationship with a provider of Teladoc Health Medical Group (“Teladoc Clinician”) who is licensed in your state. Teladoc Health, Inc. does not provide the Services; it performs administrative, payment, and other activities for Teladoc Clinicians in support of the Services they provide to you.
Responsibility for your comprehensive care shall always remain with your local clinician or primary care physician.
The expected benefits of using telemedicine include:
The potential risks associated with using telemedicine may include:
The inability to have direct, physical contact with your healthcare provider is the primary difference between telemedicine and in-person health care. The alternative to telemedicine is receiving care in a traditional in-person care setting.
In receiving the Services, you understand and agree:
Your use of this Service is voluntary and you have the right to withdraw your consent to the Services at any time by ending this session. If you choose to end your session, your right to future Telemedicine Services will not be affected.
Do you understand the statements above and do you consent, on your own behalf or on behalf of your minor dependents, to receive Services by a Teladoc Clinician?
