- Connected medical devices and health monitoring devices that interact with our Website or App(s) (“Devices”);
- Any products (“Products”) available for purchase through our Website and/or our App; and
- The healthcare and other services (“Services”) made available through our Website, App, and/or Devices.
The platform and technology related non-medical services, our Website, App, Devices and Services are collectively referred to as our “Platform.”
1. Not For Emergencies
Our Platform and the Services are not for medical emergencies or urgent situations. You should not disregard or delay to seek medical advice based on anything that appears or does not appear on our Platform. If you believe you are experiencing an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
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. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider concerning questions you have regarding a medical condition and before stopping, starting, or modifying any treatment.
2. Risk of Telehealth Services
By using the Services, you acknowledge the potential risks associated with telehealth services. These include but are not limited to the following: information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical or health care decision making by the Provider; delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failures of electronic equipment; although the electronic systems we use incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, those protocols could fail causing a breach of privacy of your health information.
3. Privacy Practices
4. Prescription Policy
Certain products available through the Platform require a valid prescription by a licensed healthcare provider. You will not be able to obtain a prescription product unless you have completed a consultation with one of the Providers through the Platform, the Provider has determined the prescription product is appropriate for you, and the Provider has written a prescription.
If a Provider determines a prescription product is appropriate for you and writes a prescription, you may fill the prescription at any pharmacy of your choice as prompted during your use of the Services.
You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided product information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription. We fully honor patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct your Provider to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
5. Not an Insurance Product
We are not an insurer, nor do we offer an insurance plan or product. The amounts you pay to us for any Services obtained through the Platform are not insurance premiums. If you desire any type of health or other insurance, you will need to purchase such insurance separately.

You may not frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose, or deep linking to, any name, trademarks, service marks, logo, content, or other proprietary information (including, without limitation, images, text, page layout, or form) of Hoag without our express written consent.
You must not access or use any part of the Platform or any services or materials available through the Platform for outsourcing for others or as part of a service bureau business so otherwise for the benefit of unaffiliated third parties who pay directly for its benefit or for other similar commercial purposes, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without express written consent of Hoag.

We accept credit and debit cards issued by U.S. banks. If a credit card account is being used for a transaction, we may obtain preapproval for an amount up to the amount of the payment. If you enroll to make recurring payments automatically, all charges and fees will be billed to the credit card you designate during the setup process. If you want to designate a different credit card or if there is a change in your credit card, you must change your information online. This may temporarily delay your ability to make online payments while we verify your new payment information.
Some of our payment options enable payment in whole or in part by your applicable health insurance or health insurance plan. Please review our pricing and payment options on our Site for more detailed and up-to-date information. Please keep in mind that you will be responsible for all charges incurred under or in connection with your Account for purchases, subject to payment or reimbursement options available through your health insurance provider. In the event that your health insurance provider denies the charge or does not pay in full, you will be responsible for the unpaid amount.
