How does my child receive a prescription online?
In the practice of telehealth, the child should be present during the visit. The patient’s appearance, particularly with children, is critical to differentiate between “sick” and “not sick.” Occasionally, the parent may want to talk in private with the physician and likewise, the provider may want to speak to the child without the parent. It is highly recommended all children are seen using video, however for those states that do not require video to prescribe, the decision to prescribe in this situation is at the sole discretion of the physician. Additionally, children need to have their own account to have a visit online - they cannot be seen under a parent account.
