1. Use of the Site. The HRT Institute (“The HRT Institute”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) operates the website located at com and other related websites and mobile applications with links to these Terms and Conditions (collectively, the “Site”). We offer online wellness services (the “Services”) enabling our members (“Clients”) to report their health and wellness history and engage healthcare professionals (“Wellness Providers”) to obtain wellness services (“Services”). By accessing and using the Site, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions and all other terms and policies that appear on the Site. If you do not wish to be bound by any of these Terms and Conditions, you may not use the Site or the Services.


  1. Healthcare Services. All of the Wellness Providers who deliver Services through The HRT Institute are independent professionals solely responsible for the services each provides to you. The HRT Institute does not practice medicine or any other licensed profession and does not interfere with the practice of medicine or any other licensed profession by Wellness Providers, each of whom is responsible for his or her services and compliance with the requirements applicable to his or her profession and license. Neither The HRT Institute nor any third parties who promote the Services or provide you with a link to the Service shall be liable for any professional advice you obtain from a Wellness Provider via the Services.


  1. Site Content. None of the Site content (other than information you receive from Wellness Providers) should be considered medical advice or an endorsement, representation or warranty that any particular medication or treatment is safe, appropriate, or effective for you.


  1. Informed Consent. A. Telemedicine is the delivery of health care services using interactive audio and video technology, where the patient and the health care professionals are not in the same physical location. During your telemedicine consultation with a Wellness Provider, details of your health history and personal health information may be discussed with you through the use of interactive video, audio, and other telecommunications technology.
    The Telemedicine Services you receive from Wellness Providers are not intended to replace a primary care physician relationship.  By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions you are acknowledging that you are required to maintain an established relationship with your primary care physician, including routine checkups. You may form an ongoing consultative relationship with some Wellness Providers.  You should seek emergency help or follow-up care when recommended by a Wellness Provider or when otherwise needed, and continue to consult with your primary care physician and other healthcare professionals as recommended. We may make recommendations for follow up care either through The HRT Institute or other healthcare providers. You will have direct access to client support services to follow up with wellness prescription services and processing as needed.  Among the benefits of our Services are improved access to our prescription refill platform, wellness professionals and convenience. However, as with any health service, there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. These risks include, but may not be limited to:


  • Although our Wellness Providers prescribe only FDA approved medications but may recommend oral supplement products, in rare cases, a lack of full divulgence from you about your health history may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors;
  • Although the electronic systems we use will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, in rare instances, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal health information
  1. By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the following:
  • You understand that you may expect the anticipated benefits from the use of telemedicine in your care, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured.
  • You understand that the laws that protect the privacy and security of health information apply to telemedicine, and have received The HRT Institute’s Notice of Privacy Practices, which describes these protections in more detail. Electronic communications are directed to your Wellness Provider(s) and their supervisees through a secure, encrypted video interface and electronic health record.
  • The HRT Institute is not contracted with any health insurance provider and you are fully responsible for payment of services and prescriptions provide through this platform.
  • Your Wellness Provider may determine that the Services are not appropriate for some or all of your treatment needs, and accordingly may elect not to provide telemedicine services to you through the Site.
  1. With respect to psychotherapy, The HRT Institute Wellness Providers do not provide any mental health services and do not prescribe or adjust any medications related to any mental health treatment you may be undergoing.
  2. You can send messages to your Wellness Provider by contacting your Wellness Advisor directly or contacting The HRT Institute Client Services at 877-773-0158. Emails or electronic messages to Client Services or your Wellness Advisor may not be returned immediately. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, you should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

4. Privacy. The HRT Institute complies with the federal health care privacy and security laws and maintains safeguards to protect the security of your health information. Additionally, the information you provide to your Wellness Provider during a wellness consultation is legally confidential, except for certain legal exceptions as more fully described in our Notice of Privacy Practices. We devote considerable effort toward ensuring that your personal information is secure. Information regarding our use of health and other personal information is provided in our Privacy Policy. As part of providing you the Services, we may need to provide you with certain communications, such as appointment reminders, service announcements, and administrative messages. These communications are considered part of the Services and your Account. While secure electronic messaging is always preferred to insecure email, under certain circumstances, insecure email communication containing personal health information may take place between you and The HRT Institute. The HRT Institute cannot ensure the security or confidentiality of messages sent by email. Information relating to your care, including clinical notes and medical records, are stored on secure, encrypted servers maintained by The HRT Institute.
