When it comes to prescriptions, our doctors make the call. TelaCare doctors are U.S. board-certified and licensed to practice medicine in your state. They can diagnose, treat and prescribe medication if medically necessary. When you request to speak with a doctor, we’ll ask you where you’d like any prescription to be sent; we’ll even help you find a pharmacy near you when you’re traveling.

*Doctors DO NOT prescribe controlled substances. Controlled Substances List



Our doctors can prescribe medications across all 50 states.

During or after a visit, providers can send prescriptions and recommendations for over the counter (OTC) medications to a pharmacy of your choice.

Antibiotics aren’t always the right treatment. Antibiotics do not fight infections caused by viruses like colds, flu, most sore throats, bronchitis, and many sinus and ear infections.

Instead, the doctor may provide a treatment plan that includes symptom relief for viral infections. See the link below for more information.

Online Prescriptions

With TelaCare, you can set up your account and have a visit with trusted providers in minutes. During your visit, your provider may recommend an online prescription. If this is the case, prescription will be electronically sent to the pharmacy of your choice. Before your visit even starts, make sure to tell your doctor about any existing prescriptions or over the counter medications you are taking. Some medications do not react well with others, so it’s important to be honest and open with your doctor to avoid complications. If necessary, prescriptions are available to patients nationwide. With telehealth services in all 50 states, you can have a visit and receive a potential prescription anywhere across the country. However, there are many medications that cannot be prescribed online, including controlled substances.
