Is there anything more annoying than having to make a doctor’s appointment just to get refills of a prescription you’ve been taking forever? You have to sit on hold trying to make the appointment, drive down to the office, sit in the waiting room for a long time since the doctor is usually running late, get your vitals taken, talk to a nurse, and then talk to the doctor just to walk away with your prescription refills. What if I told you there’s a better way?

With PlushCare, simply make an appointment online or call (888) 496-6817 to have a phone or video appointment with a doctor who will review your medical history and prescriptions, then electronically send refills to the pharmacy of your choice. It’s that easy!

Does It Matter What State I Live In?

PlushCare is available nationwide, which means you can get prescription refills no matter what state you live in.

How Many Refills Can I Get Per Appointment?

Our doctors will give you up to 90 days-worth of prescription refills per online appointment, based on their discretion.

Can I Use My Health Insurance?
