WHAT WE TREAT
We’re unable to safely treat some mental health conditions like bipolar disorder remotely. If you’re looking for treatment, please seek in-person care from a clinician.
Medication is prescribed at your doctor’s discretion. We don’t prescribe controlled substances like Xanax, and we don’t treat conditions like severe depression remotely.
How does MD On Demand treat anxiety and depression?
Our approach mirrors the primary care experience. You’ll start with a conversation with K and learn how others like you were treated. You’ll then connect with a doctor who can diagnose your condition and its severity and provide a comprehensive treatment plan that may include some combination of self-guided behavioral health resources, medications, and/or referral to a therapist or psychiatrist. From then on, you will have to check in monthly for a brief consultation with our doctors or clinicians to receive your refill but don’t worry, we will remind you via text when it is time to check in.
Is anyone eligible to receive treatment?
Everyone has access to a free evaluation to determine if remote care to treat their anxiety and depression could be a good fit. Whether you’re a candidate for our monthly program or not, anyone can decide to talk with one of our doctors to determine the best path to treatment but there will be instances where doctors or clinicians decide it would be safer to be treated in person.
Our Mental Health service is only available for adults 18-85.
Which medications do you prescribe?
In order to provide the best options for depression and anxiety treatment online, we prescribe medications that are considered the safest first-line in the treatment for these conditions. Learn more about what we treat and what prescriptions we provide here. We start with the lowest dose that is medically appropriate and adjust slowly to the extent required. In combination with our bi-weekly follow-ups, we aim to avoid side effects outright or catch them before they become serious.
Can online doctors prescribe Xanax?
No, online doctors cannot prescribe Xanax or any other controlled substance for anxiety treatment. However, there are prescription alternatives to treat anxiety that online providers can prescribe. You can enroll in our Mental Health program—part of the MD On Demand membership—for just $12/month and chat with a clinician to determine a treatment plan.
Can I use my insurance to pay for this?
No, but it’s cheaper than your insurance copay so you still win!
Does MD On Demand offer discounts on medication?
Discounts are available with the RxSaver Card, which can save you up to 80% on many medications.
Here’s how to use it:
Show your RxSaver card (located in the app under “Profile” > “RxSaver Card”) to your pharmacist when you pick up your prescription. Ask them to check the RxSaver discount price, and to compare it to your insurance or Medicare plan price (if you have insurance or Medicare). You and your pharmacist can determine the lowest price available.
To get an idea of price before picking up your medication, visit rxsaver.com and search for your medication.
