We can only provide a limited supply of long-term medications until you follow up with your primary care physician. We cannot refill controlled medications (narcotic pain relievers, benzodiazepines, etc.). Please contact your prescribing provider for these refills.
Does the application automatically show me available pharmacies that are within my insurance network?
No, you'll need to confirm with your insurance carrier prior to a visit to confirm that the selected pharmacy is within your network.

Patient privacy is our priority, and you can rest assured that your information is secure. The AdventHealth app uses secure technology, encrypting all communication over the internet. We are compliant with all HIPAA regulations.

Information from your video visit isn't always sent to your primary care physician, but you can print and save your "visit summary" at any time to share with your primary care doctor after a visit is completed.

A particular provider may not be available or may be engaged with another patient at this time. If the provider has already accepted your request for a video visit, there may be a four- to five-minute timeframe to establish the connection once the provider has signed in.
Question: I'm connected with my provider, but I can't see them. What should I do?Answer:
Your browser may initially ask for permission to use your camera and microphone. Make sure you have granted access. If you haven't, or you still see a black screen, refresh your screen to have another opportunity to share/allow access.

At this time, the AdventHealth app doesn't support multiple credit cards. If you need to edit your credit card information, click on the menu icon in the upper left-hand corner.
