What health issues should never be considered for an E-Visit?

Though an E-Visit can be a valuable tool to save you time and energy if you’re not feeling well, there are some health care situations that aren’t appropriate for an E-Visit.

Some things that would restrict you from having an E-Visit include:

  • You are breastfeeding
  • You are not at least 18 years old
  • You are pregnant

Also, E-Visit is not available for use with emergency situations. If you have an urgent health need, it’s important to call your physician’s office directly or call 911.

Other concerns doctors cannot take care of during E-Visits, include:

  • Medication refill requests
  • Paperwork for handicap placards
  • Prescriptions for controlled substances
  • School note requests
  • Work note requests
