What's included

Personalized treatment plans may include a prescription renewal for an asthma medication that’s worked well for you in the past 12 months. Your clinician won’t prescribe oral steroids or any prescription medications you haven’t tried before. They also won’t prescribe medical equipment like a nebulizer. You can message your clinician with follow-up questions for 14 days after you get your treatment plan.

If you need treatment for an additional health condition, you’ll need to start a separate visit.
