CONSENT TO TREATMENT AND USE OF TELEHEALTH IN THE DELIVERY OF CARE
You acknowledge and agree that you have requested to receive medical treatment and services from Providers, and you consent to the rendering of medical treatment and services as considered necessary and appropriate by Providers at the time of the visit. You have the right to decline treatment and services at any time. You also acknowledge that no assurances or guarantees have been made to you by Providers concerning the outcome and/or results of any medical treatment or services.
To provide you with treatment, it is important that your Providers have accurate information about your health and symptoms. Accordingly, you agree that you will not knowingly provide inaccurate information about your health or symptoms in connection with seeking treatment or using the Services. Any intentional misrepresentations about your health or symptoms may result in our terminating your use of the Services.
Your Providers may use or rely upon certain technology in the delivery of your care. Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare services using electronic communications, information technology or other means between a healthcare provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. Telehealth may be used for diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and/or patient education, and may include, but is not limited to, one or more of the following:
Electronic transmission of medical records, photo images, personal health information or other data between a patient and a healthcare provider
Interactions between a patient and healthcare provider via audio, video and/or data communications
NO EMERGENCY CARE
DoctorHere’s Site and Services are not for medical emergencies or urgent situations. If you have an emergency, such as chest pain, severe shortness of breath, severe headache or bleeding, call 911 or proceed directly to the nearest hospital emergency room. You should seek emergency help or follow up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed. You should continue to consult with your primary provider and other healthcare professionals as recommended.
DoctorHere does not participate with or bill commercial health insurance plans or federal healthcare programs such as Medicare or Medicaid. DoctorHere providers may recommend you receive services not offered by DoctorHere (e.g., specialty services, diagnostic tests), but in no event will DoctorHere be responsible for any resulting medical bills or fees.
NO ACCOUNT SHARING
By purchasing a subscription to DoctorHere services, you acknowledge and agree that you will not share your paid membership account with any other individuals. Sharing your individual account with other individuals for the use of Services will be cause for our terminating your account.

Thereafter, we or our third party payment processor will automatically charge you the then-applicable Subscription Fee on a monthly or annual basis, depending on which Subscription you chose.
Your Subscription continues until cancelled by you or we terminate your Subscription in accordance with this Agreement.
