YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMMA
Somma. does not provide any medical services, including via the Site and Services. Rather, Somma provides a technology platform for you to access a MedSomma health care provider and obtain access to additional information, which you may or may not choose to utilize in planning your health care and wellness. The health and wellness resources made available through our Services are not a substitute for direct in-person health care services in all cases. The decision to focus on diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or both, rests with you and the health care provider. You understand that by coordinating and in certain cases consulting with MedSomma through the Services, you are not entering into a provider-patient relationship with Somma.
In some cases, MedSomma may use the Services to provide advice or treatment to you. A health care provider consulting with you through the Services may not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in person and observing your physical condition, in each instance. Therefore, the health care provider may not be aware of facts or information that may affect his or her opinion regarding a potential diagnosis or treatment recommendation. To reduce the risk to you of this limitation, Somma strongly encourages you to provide all relevant information and discuss any and all diagnosis and treatment options with a health care provider. Moreover, a health care provider utilizing Somma may be limited by state law in prescribing certain medications to you without first conducting an in-person physical examination. By deciding to engage the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of these limitations and agree to assume the risk of these limitations. Furthermore, you agree and accept that: (i) any diagnosis you may receive is limited and, in some cases, provisional; (ii) the health care services are not intended, in all cases, to replace a full medical evaluation or an in-person visit with a health care provider; (iii) a health care provider acting through the Services may not have important information that is usually obtained through a “hands-on” physical examination; and (iv) the absence of a physical examination may affect the health care provider’s ability to diagnose any potential condition, disease or injury.
If you receive a prescription as a result of the Services, you may select one of our partner compounding pharmacies to ship your prescription. You give us consent to send and disclose all information provided by you, health care records, and other applicable health care information and personal information (such as your name, location and demographic information) so that you may receive pharmacy services.
If you select to use a partnered compounding pharmacy to fulfill any prescriptions provided by health care providers through the Services, you acknowledge that your medication, if approved, must keep it out of the reach of children and for the designated person on the prescription.
You agree to pay all fees due for services requested. You will see a prompt for your payment details, such as your credit card information and any promotional codes you may have. By entering your payment information and submitting your request, you authorize us, our affiliates, or our third-party payment processors to charge the amount due.
You understand and agree that you are responsible for all fees due to receive the Services, health care services and pharmacy services, including any fees charged by the health care organization(s) or provider(s). Your payments may include fees charged by health care organization(s) or provider(s) for health care services and/or pharmacy services, which Somma collects on their behalf. Any health care services, or pharmacy services not made available through the Services are not included in the payments collected by Somma on behalf of MedSomma and you may be separately charged by the applicable health care providers for such services.
If your credit card expires or Somma, MedSomma, our affiliates, or our third-party payment processors are unable to process your payment, you may receive notice for you to provide an alternative payment method. MedSomma and its provider(s) have no obligation to provide any health care services or pharmacy services unless and until full payment has been received and/or verified.
By agreeing to use the Services, you acknowledge and agree that: (1) you will pay directly for any medical services and products provided to you, and (2) neither MedSomma nor any MedSomma affiliated health care organization or provider will bill any federal or state health care program for such medical services or products. For transparency in the costs for any medical services and products that you may obtain through the Services, you can find specific pricing information at MedSomma.com
Due to legal restrictions, you cannot refund prescriptions medications purchased. This is because medications are packaged specifically for you and cannot be used for another patient. The pharmacy’s regulations prohibit the return of prescription medications for reimbursement. This means that Somma is unable to accept returns of prescription medications for refunds, even if they are unused. Please see the Refund Policy available on the Site for further description.
