Usually, yes. Your K-affiliated doctor will evaluate you to determine what prescription, if any, is appropriate. Once a doctor determines you need a prescription, he or she will send it to your local pharmacy or mail it to your door, if available. To get a prescription you will be required to take a selfie as verification compared to the ID you submit.
Also, there are a few limitations to the medications doctors can prescribe in the K app. Here's a list of medications we currently do not prescribe.
- Controlled substances
- Birth control or hormone therapy
- Certain lifestyle medications (weight management, etc)
- Certain medications like Carisoprodol, Butalbital, Tramadol, and Viagra
