    • By using UpScriptSickleCell I agree for my child to receive telehealth services. Telehealth involves the delivery of health care services, including assessment, treatment, and diagnosis using interactive audio, video, and data communications. During my visit, my UpScriptSickleCell provider and I will be able to see and speak with each other from remote locations.
    • I agree to follow telehealth policies applicable to minor patients:
      • I will remain with the patient and available to the provider during the entire visit. If I am not present and/or available, I understand that the visit may not be completed;
      • I understand that UpScriptSickleCell does not provide telehealth services to patients under the age of 5 and certify that the patient is 5 years old or older; and
      • I will provide a valid email address for post-visit communications.
    • I understand and agree that:
      • I will not be in the same location or room as my medical provider.

      • I further understand that the UpScriptSickleCell health provider advice, recommendations and/or decisions may be based on factors not within his/her control, including incomplete or inaccurate data provided by me. I understand that the UpScriptSickleCell provider relies on information provided by me before and during the telehealth virtual visit and that I must provide information about my minor child’s medical history, conditions, and current or previous medical care that is complete and accurate to the best of my ability.
      • I understand that the level of care provided by the UpScriptSickleCell provider is to be a similar level of care that is available through an in-person medical visit. If my provider believes my minor child would be better served by in person care or another form of care, I will be referred to my primary care physician, hospital, or other appropriate health care provider.
      • In case of an emergency, I will dial 911 or go directly to the nearest hospital emergency room.
    • I consent to, understand, and agree that:
