Frequently asked questions
How can I prepare for my telehealth visit?
If you need more than a 30-day supply of hypothyroidism medication, you'll need to provide thyroid test results (called "thyroid labs" or "thyroid panels") from the past 12 months. Thyroid labs measure levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), free thyroid hormones such as thyroxine (free T4), and triiodothyronine (T3).

If your clinician has concerns about your lab results, they may not renew your prescription.
Can I get my thyroid levels tested through Amazon Clinic?
No. Thyroid level testing isn't available through Amazon Clinic at this time.
What are the risks of not taking my hypothyroidism medication?
Because the thyroid gland affects so many different organ systems, poor thyroid function can cause a wide range of side effects like fatigue, mental health symptoms, and high blood pressure. If thyroid levels get dangerously low, the condition can lead to a thyroid emergency like myxedema coma, which is frequently fatal.

Levothyroxine, a common hypothyroidism medication, has a relatively long half-life of 7 days. This means that the drug continues to work in your body even if you skip a dose. But it's critical to maintain healthy thyroid function (euthyroid) to reduce your risk of health problems. Hypothyroidism medication should be taken consistently, and thyroid levels checked regularly by a healthcare provider.
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?
Clinicians typically write prescription renewals for a 30-day supply of medication.

Your clinician will 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.
