Special consent to telehealth services
Telemedicine involves the delivery of health care services using electronic communications, information technology, or other means between a health care provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. Telemedicine may be used for diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and/or related patient education, and may include, but is not limited to:

  • Electronic transmission of medical records, photo images, personal health information, or other data between a patient and health care provider;
  • Interactions between a patient and health care provider via audio, video, and/or data communications; and
  • Use of output data from medical devices, sound, and video files. The electronic systems used in the Services will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information and imaging data, and will include measures to safeguard the data to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption.

Please see our Consent to Telehealth available for a description of the risks and benefits of telemedicine. The Consent to Telehealth is hereby incorporated into these Terms of Use by reference and constitutes a part of these Terms of Use.

Privacy policy
Fitpal LLC understands the importance of confidentiality and privacy regarding your health information. Please see: (1) our Privacy Policy available on the Sites fitpal.com for a description of how we may collect and use your personal information, and (2) the Fitpal LLC Professionals Notice of Privacy Practices applicable to Beluga Health, P.A. and similar affiliated professional entities for a description of how these entities may use and disclose your medical information and how you may access that information. The Privacy Policy and Fitpal LLC Professionals Notice of Privacy Practices are hereby incorporated into these Terms of Use by reference and constitute a part of these Terms of Use.

Your relationship with Fitpal LLC

Fitpal LLC does not provide any medical services, including via the Sites and Services. Rather, Fitpal LLC provides a technology platform for you to access a health care provider employed or contracted with Beluga Health, P.A. or similar affiliated professional entities and obtain access to additional information, which you may or may not choose to utilize in planning your health care and wellness. The health and wellness resources made available through our Services are not a substitute for direct in-person health care services in all cases. The decision to focus on diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or both, rests with you and the health care provider. You understand that by coordinating and in certain cases consulting with a Beluga Health, P.A. or affiliate health care provider through the Services, you are not entering into a provider-patient relationship with Fitpal LLC

By accepting the Terms of Use, you agree and consent to Fitpal LLC,  Fitpal LLC affiliates, or health care providers sending you disclosures, notices, messages, reports, and other communications. It is your responsibility to monitor these communications. You acknowledge and agree that you will not hold us or any Fitpal LLC affiliate liable for any loss, injury, or claim of any kind resulting from your failure to read these communications or for your failure to comply with any treatment recommendations contained in these communications.

Communications by text message and email by opting-in to receive text (SMS) messages from Fitpal LLC or by sending Fitpal LLC an initial text message (an “SMS Enrollment”), you consent to receiving text messages regarding your Fitpal LLC account and use of the Sites and Services. These text messages may include order confirmations, shipping notifications, messages from your healthcare provider, and other transactional messages, as well as promotional and marketing notifications, to the extent you have opted-in to receive such messages from Fitpal LLC.

With your SMS Enrollment, you represent and understand that: (1) you are the owner or authorized user of the mobile device you used in order to initiate the SMS Enrollment, (2) you are authorized to approve any applicable charges in connection with the text messages you send to and receive from Fitpal LLC, (3) you will be responsible for all messaging and other data charges that may apply for any text messages sent to you from Fitpal LLC, or from Fitpal LLC to you, and (4) neither Fitpal LLC, nor your or Fitpal LLC’s mobile carriers, will be liable for delayed or undelivered messages.

Note that access to the Services and the Sites is not conditioned upon your consent to receive marketing or promotional text messages from Fitpal LLC, and you can opt-out of any of Fitpal LLC’s SMS services at any time by texting “STOP” to the message received, from the mobile device that is subscribed to receive the SMS messages. After you send the text message “STOP” to us, we may send you one final text message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. If you have opted-in to receive more than one type of text message from Fitpal LLC, you will need to opt-out of each Fitpal LLC SMS service to which you are subscribed. Until you have done so, you may continue to receive the types of text messages from Fitpal LLC that you have opted-in to receive but have not unsubscribed from.

You also understand that while Fitpal LLC takes your privacy and the security of your health and other sensitive information very seriously, the transmission of information over the internet and mobile networks is not 100% secure. Text messages and emails that you send to or receive from Fitpal LLC are not encrypted, which means that it is possible they may be intercepted by third parties. If you choose to send or receive information about your health or any other sensitive information by text message or email, you do so at your own risk. By initiating an SMS Enrollment, you consent to sending text messages to Fitpal LLC, and receiving text messages from Fitpal LLC, that are not encrypted. Likewise, by emailing Fitpal LLC or giving Fitpal LLC your email, you consent to receiving unencrypted emails messages from Fitpal LLC.

If you are experiencing any issues with Fitpal LLC’s text messaging or email services, or if you have any concerns about sending or receiving any sensitive information through text or email, please contact us directly at support@fitpal.com. If you have questions specific to your text or data plan, please contact your wireless provider.

 

Consultative service
In some cases, a Beluga Health, P.A. or affiliated health care provider may use the Services to provide advice or treatment to you. A health care provider consulting with you through the Services may not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in person and observing your physical condition, in each instance. Therefore, the health care provider may not be aware of facts or information that may affect his or her opinion regarding a potential diagnosis or treatment recommendation. To reduce the risk to you of this limitation, Fitpal LLC strongly encourages you to provide all relevant information and discuss any and all diagnosis and treatment options with a health care provider. Moreover, a health care provider utilizing Fitpal LLC may be limited by state law in prescribing certain medications to you without first conducting an in-person physical examination. By deciding to engage the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of these limitations and agree to assume the risk of these limitations. Furthermore, you agree and accept that: (i) any diagnosis you may receive is limited and, in some cases, provisional; (ii) the health care services are not intended, in all cases, to replace a full medical evaluation or an in-person visit with a health care provider; (iii) a health care provider acting through the Services may not have important information that is usually obtained through a “hands-on” physical examination; and (iv) the absence of a physical examination may affect the health care provider’s ability to diagnose any potential condition, disease or injury.

For more information regarding the health care services offered by health care providers utilizing the Services, please visit fitpal.com.

Site content
Except for specific communications received from Beluga Health, P.A. or affiliate health care organizations and providers, none of the Content you receive through the Sites should be considered medical advice.

Registration and user accounts
Although certain parts of the Sites are accessible by any individual, you are obligated to register with Fitpal LLC in order to access the Services. The Services are available only to users who have registered with Fitpal LLC and to other persons affiliated with Fitpal LLC who have been granted accounts with usernames and passwords (“Secure Users”). If you are a Secure User, you agree to provide information that is accurate, complete and correct, and to accurately maintain and update any information about yourself that you have provided to Fitpal LLC. If you do not maintain such information, or Fitpal LLC has reasonable grounds to suspect as much, Fitpal LLC has the right to suspend or terminate your account and your use of the Services. You also agree to immediately notify Fitpal LLC of any unauthorized use of your username, password or any other breach of security that you become aware of involving or relating to the Services by emailing Fitpal LLC at support@fitpal.com. Fitpal LLC may take any and all actions it deems necessary or reasonable to maintain the security of the Sites, Services and your Secure User account.

You agree to keep confidential your username and password and to exit from your Secure User account at the end of each session. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your account and for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You are responsible for changing your password promptly if you think it has been compromised. You may not transfer or share your password with anyone, or create more than one account. You may not use anyone else’s account at any time. Fitpal LLC explicitly disclaims liability for any and all losses and damages arising from your failure to comply with this section. You acknowledge and agree that: (1) all or any part of the Sites may not be accessible at any time, for any period, or for any reason; and (2) Fitpal LLC will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Sites are unavailable at any time or for any period.

‘jailbreaking’ the mobile operating system

The App is intended for use only on a mobile phone that runs an unmodified manufacturer approved operating system. Using the App on a mobile phone with a modified operating system may undermine security features that are intended to protect your protected health information from unauthorized or unintended disclosure. As a result, you may compromise your protected health information if you use the App on a mobile phone that has been modified. Use of the App on a mobile phone with a modified operating system is a material breach of these Terms of Use.

Special notice to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries
Federal and state health care programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, do not pay for all health care costs, even for some health care services and products that you or your health care provider have good reason to think you need. If you are a beneficiary of a federal or state health care program, and such program does not pay for certain services or products rendered to you, you may have to pay for these services and products. As we understand it, neither federal nor state health care programs currently pay for any of the medical services or products made available through the Services performed by affiliated health care organizations or providers, at least not in the way such services or products are provided (i.e., using telemedicine and bundled treatment offerings). By agreeing to use the Services, you acknowledge and agree that: (1) you will pay directly for any medical services and products provided to you, and (2) neither Fitpal LLC nor any Fitpal LLC affiliated health care organization or provider will bill any federal or state health care program for such medical services or products.

Weight Loss health program terms and conditions
This section describes additional terms and conditions applicable to your participation in the Weight Loss Health Program (the “Program”) offered through Fitpal LLC and the affiliated professional entities that provide services on the Fitpal LLC platform. The Program is designed to provide access to routine and necessary services for the management of obesity. The Program is a membership-based service through which eligible Members can obtain limited medical care, including at-home phlebotomy services, medication at the discretion of the Member’s provider, and pharmacy services for a recurring monthly payment. The Program is not health insurance or a substitute for health insurance, does not meet any individual health insurance mandate under federal or state law, and cannot replace your in-person provider relationships. You should keep your existing health insurance coverage while you are participating in the Program or obtain health insurance coverage if you do not currently have it.

Eligibility limitations applicable to the Program
Except in New York, Florida, and Illinois, in order to be eligible to participate in the program you must have a commercial health insurance benefits plan, including, but not limited to, an employer-provided health insurance plan, that may be billed for laboratory services. To learn more about billing for laboratory services please see the “Laboratory testing services not included” section below. You understand and agree that the affiliated professional entities, the healthcare professionals practicing on the Bask platform, and the pharmacies in the Bask Pharmacy Network will not bill your health insurance benefits plan for the health care and pharmacy services and products that you receive as part of the Program and that such health care and pharmacy services and products may not be eligible for reimbursement. You understand and agree that you are responsible for all fees due to receive health care and pharmacy services and products consistent with the “Payment” and “Special notice to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries” sections above.

Onboarding and diagnosis
In order to participate in the Program, you must be evaluated by a doctor or nurse practitioner on the Fitpal LLC platform and, in the professional judgment of such health care provider, meet the clinical criteria for participation. To be evaluated for participation, you must complete an initial onboarding telehealth medical assessment (the “Diagnosis Online Visit”) with a doctor or nurse practitioner and obtain laboratory blood testing to measure your key physiological indicators including, but not limited to, your AC1 or testosterone levels. If, following a review of the laboratory results and the Diagnosis Online Visit, your health care provider determines that you are a good candidate for treatment through the Program, he or she may initiate such treatment by writing you a prescription.

You acknowledge and agree that, even if you do not meet the clinical criteria for participation in the Program, you are responsible for payment of the cost of the Diagnosis Online Visit and any laboratory testing that your health care provider orders for you and such cost is not included in the Membership Fee.

Membership and Additional Services

Your membership (“Membership”) in the Program, including your ability to access the Membership Services and your obligation to pay Membership Fees (each as defined below) will commence when your health care provider communicates your care plan, risks and benefits of treatment, and you acknowledge such and elect to proceed with participation in the Program.

The Program includes:

  • Six (6) to Twelve (12) months of Membership
  • Up to eight (8) discrete medical consults per year with your Fitpal LLC-affiliated health care provider, all of which will be set on a pre-scheduled basis according to your personalized care plan.
  • Health care provider services required to order and interpret up to eight (8) lab panels per year (Note: the costs of the laboratory tests are not included in your Membership and must be paid by you separately)
  • Up to eight (8) at-home blood draws
  • Secure messaging with your Fitpal LLC-affiliated healthcare provider between discrete medical consults
  • Fulfillment of prescription medication for the treatment of GLP-1 compound medication (as prescribed), if you choose to have your prescription filled by the Fitpal LLC Pharmacy Network, with shipping for $29.99.

In certain cases, you or your health care provider may request that you complete services (e.g., medical consults, laboratory tests) in excess of the Membership Services. For each medical consult after the eighth consult, for each at-home blood draw after the eighth at-home blood draw, and for each lab result interpretation after the eighth lab result interpretation, (the “Additional Services”) you will be charged a separate fee (the “Additional Services Fee”). You will be charged an Additional Services Fee of $15.00 for each additional consult or lab result interpretation. You will be charged an Additional Services Fee of $150.00 for each additional at-home blood draw. As part of your participation in the Program, you agree that any Additional Services Fees that you incur can be charged to your payment card or PayPal account on file within seven (7) days of the date on when such Additional Services are rendered.

The Membership Services may change from time to time. You will be given thirty (30) days’ notice of any such change. You may accept the revised Membership Services by continuing in the Program or reject them by terminating your Membership.

At-home phlebotomy services
In order to participate in the Program, you must periodically obtain medically necessary laboratory testing (bloodwork). As part of the Membership Services, you will receive up to eight (8) at-home blood draws from our partner mobile phlebotomy provider. You agree to receive at-home phlebotomy services from our mobile phlebotomy partner for any laboratory testing required by your Fitpal LLC-affiliated health care provider as part of the Program.

Laboratory testing services not included
In order to participate in the Program, you must periodically obtain medically necessary laboratory testing (bloodwork). Your blood sample, once collected by our mobile phlebotomy partner, will be processed and tested by Instalab or Quest Diagnostics. You acknowledge and agree that your Membership Fee does not include the cost of any laboratory services provided by Quest and that Fitpal LLC is not responsible for any such costs. Quest determines the charges for its laboratory testing services and may bill you directly for any amounts that you owe Quest based on your agreement with Quest. Your payment arrangement with Quest is not governed by these Terms of Use. Contact Quest directly for more information about pricing and payment for laboratory testing services.

Payment of Membership Fee
You will have an opportunity to review and agree to the cost of Membership (the “Membership Fee”) during the checkout process that is part of the Diagnosis Online Visit. You may also view the costs associated with Membership on the Program webpage located here. Once you begin participation in the Program, your Membership Fee will be automatically charged to your payment card or PayPal account on file on a recurring, monthly basis (approximately every 28-30 days) until your Membership is canceled. The initial payment must be made the day your Membership commences. Once paid, your Membership Fee is non-refundable. You may cancel your Membership at any time by calling us at (877) 456-9448, emailing us at support@fitpal.com, or logging into your Secure User account.

If you choose to have your prescription filled at a local pharmacy, your Membership Fee will not include the cost of medication and pharmacy fulfillment. If you transfer your prescription from a local pharmacy to the Fitpal LLC Pharmacy Network, the cost of medication and pharmacy fulfillment will be added to your Membership Fee at the beginning of the next billing cycle. You may transfer your prescription to a local pharmacy or to the Bask Pharmacy Network at any time by calling us at (877) 465-9448 or emailing us at support@fitpal.com.

Canceling your Membership
You may cancel your Membership at any time by calling us at (877) 465-9448, emailing us at support@fitpal.com, or logging into your Secure User account. Any Membership Fees paid prior to the date of cancellation are non-refundable.

Delaying your Membership
If you would like to delay your billing date for any reason, you may delay by logging into your Secure User account, calling us at (877) 465-9448, or emailing us at support@fitpal.com. You may learn more about how to initiate a delay through your Secure User account in the FAQs located here. When you delay, you will not be charged a Membership Fee until the end of the delay period that you have selected. During such period, you will not be eligible to receive any Membership Services, except you may still message your Fitpal LLC-affiliated health care professional through Fitpal LLC’s secure messaging application at any time. Delaying could impact your ability to adhere to your treatment plan. As a result, at your Fitpal LLC-affiliated health care provider’s discretion, you may need to be re-evaluated and undergo additional laboratory testing before continuing with treatment (a “Continuation Visit”) at the end of a delay period. If you delay for a cumulative period of eight (8) consecutive weeks or more without scheduling a Continuation Visit, your Membership may be canceled without notice.

Pausing your Membership
If you would like to pause your Membership by turning off auto-payments (going “On-demand”) for any reason, you may do so by logging into your Secure User account, calling us at (877) 465-9448, or emailing us at support@fitpal.com. You may learn more about how to go On-demand through your Secure User account in the FAQs located here. When you go On-demand, you will not be charged any additional monthly Membership Fee payments until you initiate a charge by ordering a refill of your medication or turning auto-payments back on. You will receive Membership Services through the last day of the monthly billing cycle for which you have paid the monthly Membership Fee. Thereafter, other than messaging your Fitpal LLC-affiliated health care professional through Fitpal LLC’s secure messaging application, you will not be eligible to receive any Membership Services until you initiate another charge as described above. Going On-demand could impact your ability to adhere to your treatment plan. As a result, at your Fitpal LLC-affiliated health care provider’s discretion, you may need to undergo a Continuation Visit before continuing with treatment at the end of an On-demand period. If you remain On-demand for a cumulative period of eight (8) consecutive weeks or more without scheduling a Continuation Visit, your Membership may be canceled without notice.

Asynchronous Telemedicine Informed Consent Thank you for choosing Beluga Health, P.A. (“Beluga”)! You are viewing this form because you have elected to engage in asynchronous telemedicine visits with a Beluga healthcare practitioner. Your practitioner is a board-certified physician licensed in your state. By clicking “I Agree,” I ACKNOWLEDGE I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE TERMS PRESENTED BELOW, AND UNDERSTAND THE RISKS AND BENEFITS OF ASYNCHRONOUS TELEMEDICINE, AND BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS OF USE I HEREBY GIVE MY INFORMED CONSENT TO PARTICIPATE IN ASYNCHRONOUS TELEMEDICINE UNDER THESE TERMS. What is Telemedicine? Telemedicine is the delivery of healthcare services, including examination, consultation, diagnosis, and treatment, through electronic communication technologies when you (the patient) are located in a different location than your healthcare practitioner. Beluga allows you to receive treatment from a healthcare practitioner without having to travel to another location or schedule a separate appointment and helps you avoid long wait times that you might otherwise experience at an in-person visit. What is Asynchronous Telemedicine? Asynchronous telemedicine is one way to deliver telemedicine. Asynchronous communication is often referred to as “store-and-forward” communication, where participants submit and collect data at different times. An example of asynchronous communication is a telemedicine encounter with a healthcare practitioner that involves sending photos, video, or other communications via email or text message. “Asynchronous” means “not occurring at the same time” and is different from “synchronous” telemedicine, which generally includes visits conducted in real-time between patients and healthcare practitioners through audio or video means (e.g., live phone calls or video-conferencing). Healthcare practitioners may use asynchronous telemedicine to aid in diagnoses and medical consultations when live communication or face-to-face contact is not possible or necessary. Beluga’s platform (“Platform”), in particular, allows for the following asynchronous telemedicine services: 1) text-based healthcare practitioner-patient interactions through short message service (“SMS”) and multimedia messaging service (“MMS”) communications; and 2) secure information collection through asynchronous store-and-forward patient questionnaires. What are the Possible Risks to Using Asynchronous Telemedicine? As with any medical treatment, there are potential risks associated with the use of asynchronous telemedicine. Beluga believes that the likelihood of these risks materializing is very low. These risks may include, without limitation, the following: • Delays in medical evaluation and consultation or treatment may occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment or the Internet, which may include poor data quality, Internet outages, or other service interruption issues. You may reschedule the visit with your healthcare practitioner should these interruptions occur. • Security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information. • Because Beluga does not have access to your complete medical records, if you do not disclose to your healthcare practitioner a full list of your medical history including diagnoses, treatments, medications/supplements, and allergies, adverse treatment, drug interactions or allergic reactions, or other negative outcomes may occur. • Asynchronous telemedicine services are NOT emergency services and your Personal Data (as defined in the Beluga Privacy Policy) WILL NOT BE MONITORED 24/7. If you think you are experiencing a medical emergency, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY. THE CARE YOU RECEIVE WILL BE AT THE SOLE DISCRETION OF THE HEALTHCARE PRACTITIONER WHO IS TREATING YOU, WITH NO GUARANTEE OF DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT, OR PRESCRIPTION. THE HEALTHCARE PRACTITIONER WILL DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT THE CONDITION BEING DIAGNOSED AND/OR TREATED IS APPROPRIATE FOR THE CARE PROVIDED THROUGH AN ASYNCHRONOUS TELEMEDICINE ENCOUNTER VIA THE PLATFORM.

Your Rights and Acknowledgements:

  • You have the same privacy rights via asynchronous telemedicine that you would have during an in-person visit. Dissemination of any identifiable images or information from the asynchronous telemedicine visit to researchers or other entities will not occur without your written consent. For more information about how we protect your privacy, please read the Beluga Privacy Policy here.
  • Asynchronous telemedicine may involve electronic communication of your personal medical information to healthcare practitioners who may be located in other areas, including out of state. • You understand that you may expect the anticipated benefits from the use of asynchronous telemedicine, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured.
  • You understand that all information submitted to Beluga via text message and entered by your healthcare practitioner in the Beluga Platform will be part of your medical record and available to you by emailing admin@belugahealth.com. This information will have the same restrictions on dissemination without your consent.
  • You understand that your healthcare practitioner’s initial text message to you will include his/her name and credentials, and this will be recorded in the Beluga Platform as part of your medical record. • You understand you may withdraw your consent and delete your patient profile at any time by emailing admin@belugahealth.com.
  • You understand that your healthcare information may be shared with other individuals in accordance with the Beluga Privacy Policy and regulations or laws in state or territory in which you are located. • You further understand that your healthcare information may be shared in the following circumstances: o When a valid court order is issued for medical records. o Reporting suspected abuse, neglect, or domestic violence. o Preventing or reducing a serious threat to anyone’s health or safety. Call/Email/Text Messaging Consent: You expressly consent to allow Beluga or its healthcare practitioners to call, email, or text you (via SMS and/or MMS) with or regarding Personal Data (as defined in the Beluga Privacy Policy), appointments, or similar matters related to your telemedicine encounters using the contact information you have provided. Any calls or texts to you may be placed using an auto-dialer or a pre-recorded or artificial voice, even if your number is on a do-not-call list. Your phone carrier’s normal rates may apply. This is consent, not a condition of purchase. You may revoke this consent at any time by emailing us at admin@belugahealth.com. This Asynchronous Telemedicine Informed Consent is valid during your entire treatment with Beluga.
