Online Prescriptions from Online Doctors

Walk In’s team of online doctors can assess and treat many minor or non-urgent issues through our fast and easy-to-use virtual care platform. Sometimes, this involves writing a prescription medication so that you can recover or stay healthy.

Our doctors will take a medical history, virtually examine you, and decide if a medication is necessary. Prescribing is always up to the discretion and medical judgment of the treating online physician.

Pick Up Your Prescription or Have it Delivered

No more running around the town or long waits at the pharmacy. After consultation with one of Walk In’s virtual care clinic doctors, they can send your prescription to your local pharmacy or have the pharmacy deliver it for free to your home – you decide. This is healthcare on your terms.

When going to the pharmacy, remember to bring your government-issued ID and care card so that the pharmacist can release your medication to you. If you have any questions regarding your medication, please discuss them with your doctor or pharmacist.

Awkward Conversations About Medications? Not With Us

Walk In understands that you might have concerns that might feel awkward to speak about with someone in person. That is why our British Columbia online doctors take pride in delivering non-judgmental and patient-centered care from the privacy of your home. We encourage open and honest dialogue so that we can help you to feel better.

The doctors on our virtual care platform have experience prescribing for common conditions such as acne, hair loss, or erectile dysfunction. Book an online medical consultation with one of our doctors today to learn more. And if you need a doctor’s note online we can provide those as well.

Common Medications Are Available Through Telehealth

If medically indicated, our team of virtual doctors can prescribe a range of medications online. The medications can be faxed to a local pharmacy or delivered by a pharmacy to your door, at no added cost.

Please note: Walk In is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy.

So happy to have been able to speak with a doctor. It has been difficult to get an appointment anywhere. This was quick & easy!

Awesome experience! Love being able to connect with a doctor online. As a deaf person, the text/chat feature is fantastic. Thanks for a great experience!

Wonderful! Experienced doctor who listened and acted. I wish she was my family doctor.

I am so grateful for Walk In! I have a cold and I couldn’t find a clinic that wasn’t booked up for the next two weeks and didn’t feel I needed to go to urgent care. I could get an appointment with Walk In the next morning and was able to get reassurance and guidance from the doc! Any virus is freaky these days and I appreciate Walk In making it possible to be seen by a doctor.

The doctor called me early which is very appreciated. She was easy to talk to and was very reassuring and helpful. Thank you so much!

Getting an appointment was so easy, I’ve been looking for an option for a while. I’m so happy I’ve found you.

Thanks for having an available appointment for tomorrow! The accessibility of this clinic/service is precisely what is needed in our healthcare system!

The website is extremely easy to follow and use. Such a breath of fresh air. So many sites nowadays are impossible to navigate. Thank you for putting time and effort into your site!

Thank you, that was easy to do even with a fever and feeling really lousy!

Wow! What a great experience video chatting with the doctor. She was kind and patient with me as I explained my concerns. I will be picking up a prescription this afternoon. She also advised me on what to look for if the infection got worse and when to go to see a doctor in person. What a great service you offer and a gap you fill for patients. Thank you ❤️

Getting a Prescription Online Doesn’t Have to Be So Hard

Here are a few commonly asked questions about online prescriptions in BC.

Can I Use Walk In To Get A Prescription Online

Yes, you can use Walk In’s virtual care platform to connect with a Canadian-licensed physician to obtain a prescription. Prescribing is up to the discretion and medical judgment of the doctor, however. Our team of physicians can send the prescription to your local pharmacy or have the pharmacy deliver it to you for free. After your virtual consultation with the doctor, they decide whether or not a prescription is indicated for your condition. Prescriptions can be faxed directly to a pharmacy of your choice or a pharmacy can deliver them to your door-step for free.

What Kind of Prescriptions Can I Get Online

Many doctors feel comfortable prescribing routine prescriptions online (such as prescriptions for non-severe conditions like acne or seasonal allergies). If you need refills for a previously filled medication (such as birth control or thyroid medication), our online doctors may provide you with refills that can be sent to a local pharmacy. For some chronic or severe conditions, you may need to get your prescription from a regular healthcare provider, such as a family doctor or a specialist. They are also able to provide online doctor’s notes when necessary. Our doctors cannot fill any controlled prescriptions such as narcotics, benzodiazepines, sedatives, or stimulants.

Can I Take My Prescription To An In-Person Pharmacy

Absolutely, you can always take a prescription that you received online to an in-person pharmacy. Our doctors can also directly fax it to a pharmacy of your choice. When booking, simply select the pharmacy that you usually go to or one that is nearest to you.

How Do I Find An Online Pharmacy?

In Canada, pharmacies (including those online) are regulated by the pharmacy regulatory authority in the province or territory in which they are located. You can verify if an online pharmacy is legitimate by looking up the pharmacy through the website of the provincial pharmacists regulatory authority to confirm that they are licensed. Never fill a prescription with a suspicious-looking or unverified website online.

Are My Prescriptions Covered?

Prescriptions are not covered under MSP. They may be covered if you have Extended Health Benefits. Some prescriptions can be covered under the Fair PharmaCare plan once your deductible is met. Other prescriptions are covered under a program called Special Authority. Make sure to ask your pharmacist or physician about this plan. You can apply for it here.

Are travel related visits covered under MSP?

Unfortunately travel related visits are not covered under MSP. Any visit related to travel concerns, including vaccination requests, would be billed on a private basis. Not all physicians on Walk In provide travel related care. Please contact us prior to booking a travel related visit.
