result on a Test that Wilcrest determines warrants an alert call, you understand that a

abnormal result and have not connected with Wilcrest’s Care Coordination Team, you

HIV, you will have the opportunity for a telemedicine Consult with a Wilcrest physician.
Consults must be arranged through Wilcrest’s Care Coordination Team. If you elect to
receive a Consult, you will be asked to complete a brief intake survey to collect
necessary health information prior to scheduling your Consult. You may speak with the
physician by phone or video, depending on your state’s regulations. If the physician does
not reach you after three attempts, you can contact Wilcrest’s Care Coordination Team
at the “Contact Us” number below to reschedule.
If your results show that you have Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Herpes Simplex 2, or
Trichomoniasis, if you elect to have a Consult, the physician may be able to prescribe
medication for your condition. The physician will speak with you to assess your eligibility
for treatment and, if appropriate, based on the Consult and your health information, send
a prescription to the pharmacy of your choice. The scope of Services will be at the sole
discretion of the physician, with no guarantee of diagnosis, treatment, or prescription.
If you are eligible for a Consult but don’t have one of the above conditions, the physician
can discuss your specific test results and symptoms and talk about plans for managing
your health. However, no diagnosis, treatment or prescriptions will be provided other
than for the conditions listed above. You will need to follow up with your personal
physician for diagnosis, treatment or prescriptions.
- Education Session. If you are eligible for an Education Session, you may arrange for
one with a Wilcrest Health Care Provider. Education Sessions are educational sessions
providing general information about a test or condition, not your specific results or
symptoms. They are provided solely for informational purposes and do not constitute
treatment or diagnosis of any condition, disease or illness, or otherwise constitute the
practice of medicine. Physicians will not prescribe or order any drugs or medication in
connection with Education Sessions. You may be instructed to follow up with your local
healthcare provider for care.
