Frequently asked questions
How can I prepare for my Amazon Clinic visit?
Your clinician will need a blood pressure reading and a heart rate reading (pulse) from the past 30 days. If you don't have these numbers, visit your local pharmacy or primary care doctor to get them before you fill out your intake form.

If you want blood pressure medication refills beyond a one-time prescription renewal, your clinician will need to see the results of electrolyte and kidney function level tests from the past 12 months (called "metabolic labs"). You can upload your metabolic lab results as a PDF or photo. Make sure the image shows your full name and the date the labs were completed.
What are the risks of not taking my high blood pressure medication?
If you've been diagnosed with hypertension, taking high blood pressure medication is one of the most effective ways you can lower your risk of experiencing a major cardiovascular event like a heart attack or stroke.

Research shows that high blood pressure medications can reduce overall risk by:
• 50% for heart failure
• 35-40% for stroke
• 15-25% for heart attack
In fact, every 10mm Hg reduction in systolic blood pressure can reduce one's risk of having a major cardiovascular disease event by 20%, according to a meta-analysis in the medical journal The Lancet.
Can I get my electrolyte and kidney function tested through Amazon Clinic?
No. Electrolyte and kidney function testing ("metabolic labs") isn't available through Amazon Clinic at this time.
Can I get high blood pressure (hypertension) diagnosed through Amazon Clinic?
No, you can't get a hypertension diagnosis through Amazon Clinic. Diagnosing hypertension often needs multiple readings over time. We recommend having your blood pressure evaluated by a primary care provider (PCP).
What's the difference between a renewal and a refill?
When you run out of your medication, you refill it through a pharmacy. When you run out of refills, a licensed clinician has to renew your prescription.

You can request a remote prescription renewal through Amazon Clinic. Your clinician will send any new prescriptions to a U.S. pharmacy of your choice. You pay for the medication when you pick it up or have it delivered.
What's the prescription renewal policy at Amazon Clinic?
Depending on the online clinic, a prescription renewal may be for a 30- or 90-day supply of medication. A prescription may also include one or more refills.

Clinicians consider many factors when determining if a prescription is medically appropriate. For example, they may want to know how long it's been since you've:
• Taken your medication
• Seen your primary care physician (PCP)
• Had appropriate lab testing
• Had your last prescription renewal through Amazon Clinic*
*Prescription renewals may be limited to one or two within a 12-month period.
What types of visit can I have?
Video visits are available in all 50 states and D.C. Message-only visits are available in 34 states. To see your visit options, first choose your state.
Can I use my health insurance to pay for a visit and/or medication?
Amazon Clinic doesn't accept health insurance for visits at this time. You can submit a claim to your insurance provider for reimbursement, but we can’t guarantee they’ll reimburse you.

If you normally use insurance to pay for your medications, you can do that with medications prescribed through Amazon Clinic. Amazon Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans. For other pharmacies, please talk with your pharmacy directly about insurance coverage. The cost of medication isn’t included in the cost of your visit.
How does Amazon Clinic protect my health information?
Amazon Clinic protects your health information by strictly following the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA governs what Amazon Clinic and your healthcare providers can do with your medical information, as well as your contact and payment information. Amazon Clinic doesn’t and will never sell your personal information. Learn more on our privacy page.
