Prescription Policy

Doctors providing consults for WellVia members offer prescriptions for a wide range of conditions that deliver direct medicinal value. WellVia doctors diagnose, treat, and prescribe medication if medically necessary. These include, but are not limited to, drug classes such as antibiotics and antihistamines.

It is important to note that WellVia is not a drug fulfillment warehouse. WellVia does not dispense prescription drugs. If the doctor prescribes medication, it is submitted electronically (SureScripts) or by phone to the WellVia member’s chosen pharmacy. In the event a doctor does prescribe medication, he/she will limit the supply based on state and federal regulations.

WellVia doctors do not issue prescriptions for substances controlled by the DEA, non-therapeutic, and/or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. WellVia doctors do not prescribe narcotics. Also, non-therapeutic drugs such as Viagra and Cialis are not prescribed by WellVia doctors. You can view a current list of DEA controlled substances here.
