Hi Carolyn,

Depending on what the medication is, it may be possible. JustAnswer does not provide prescriptions, but I would be happy to refer you to other sites that do. Please let me know if you are interested.

I just lost my insurance as of Jan 1st... Not sure what to do without paying an arm and leg
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 2 years ago

I am sorry to hear that and I agree it can be pricey. Online physician services may be the way to go to save you some money. It is often cheaper than paying for an office visit and they can provide prescriptions for some medications to be filled at your local pharmacy. There are services that you can pay a subscription for (this would be if you want to use them as your primary care provider) or pay per visit (this would be more of a short-term solution). Which of these would interest you?

For cost comparison, you can also check out a few other telemedicine websites www.memd.me OR www.mdaligne.com in addition to www.amwell.com. Not all 50 states allow online MD prescriptions, but most do. They should be able to tell you if your state allows online Rxs. Check out the link below for more detail. Good luck. :)

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
