What is Circle Medical's policy on prescribing controlled substances?
Controlled substances may sometimes be prescribed depending on a treatment plan, which will be discussed and decided upon with your provider, While your treatment plan is being established, the continuation of previous medication is at your provider's discretion. All appointments booked to discuss progress and process any new fills (in-person or via video) are considered billable office visits.
It's the responsibility of the patient to adhere to treatment plans, including utilizing the medications as indicated. As well as scheduling follow-up appointments to avoid running out of medication before being able to see your provider. Controlled substance prescriptions will not be filled when requested through the chat function, as an appointment is required.
The goal of all Circle Medical providers is to provide safe and effective care fully within the scope of our telemedicine platform. Please let them know if you have any questions regarding this policy.
