  • One-Time Consult - 30 days

CirrusMED physicians can send prescriptions electronically, "call-in", or fax to most U.S. pharmacies, including "mail-order" pharmacies.

Short-term prescriptions for maintenance medicines may also be obtained in cases where a member is in transition to a new doctor or traveling.

 

Cirrus Medical Network doctors DO NOT  issue prescriptions for medicines controlled by the DEA*, non-therapeutic, and/or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse.  Prescriptions are not available for international consults.
