How Does Lemonaid Work?
Unlike most online health service providers, Lemonaid doesn’t always require you to have a direct consultation with a medical professional. Generally it’s enough to answer the easily accessible online questionnaire on your health history and prior medications.
This questionnaire is then sent to one of the company’s medical practitioners for review and they will be in touch with you for some follow up questions, or to schedule a live consultation when necessary, before recommending a course of treatment or giving you a prescription. Although most people won’t require a video or phone consultation prior to receiving a prescription or course of treatment, some states legally require patients to have a live consultation in order to meet regulations.
Lemonaid allows users to have the option of receiving their medication in a direct delivery. For no extra delivery, fee they will send your medication directly to your door, discreetly packaged of course. Alternatively they will send the prescription to the pharmacy of your choice for you to collect at your own convenience.

How Much Does Lemonaid Cost?
Membership is not required for a consultation, although the fee must be paid for out of pocket and cannot be covered by insurance. Lemonaid generally charges a consultation fee of $25, which doesn’t include the cost of any medication prescribed. If Lemonaid cannot offer a treatment, the consultation fee will be refunded.
Medication delivered directly through Lemonaid must be paid for out of pocket, and is not covered by insurance, although the delivery is free.
Some of the mental health services provided—anxiety, depression and insomnia, offer the option of paying a flat monthly fee which covers medical visits and treatments. Other medical services have one-time visit fees ($15-$75), and require you to pay separately for your prescription. Conveniently, you can have your prescriptions automatically refill when you run out.

Does Lemonaid Take Insurance?
Lemonaid’s consultations are not covered by insurance and must be paid for out of pocket; however the $25 consultation fee is below average even for many co-pay plans. Additionally insurance will not cover any medication ordered through the company’s mail order pharmacy, and this too will need to be covered by out of pocket payment, although the delivery itself is free and the convenience far outweighs the cost.
Alternatively some patients prefer to speak to their insurance provider to see if the medication prescribed to them is covered by their insurance plan. If so, Lemonaid will gladly send your prescription to be filled at your local pharmacy.
