The website’s domain information was checked on HostingChecker and WhoIs. The websites show that the website is hosted on the Armor Defense Inc. data center. Icebreaker Health Inc. registered the domain with GoDaddy LLC. The domain was registered on 2015-07-01, expires on 2020-07-01 and was last updated on 2018-12-04. The website’s servers can be found in Richardson in the US.
The website serves as a doctor’s office for patients who can’t physically travel to a hospital or those who prefer not to. It also serves as an online pharmacy, delivering medicine to the doorsteps of patients. Users of the website begin with a questionnaire that covers basics like medical history, symptoms, allergies, medicines being taken, etc. For other cases, like birth control, the website will require the user’s blood pressure. That will be followed by an online consultation with a doctor or nurse practitioner via video chat. The mean time for waiting for an available medical professional is 2 minutes. The company does free delivery of medicine from their stock of pharmaceuticals, or they can allow you to pick up your medication from a pharmacy you trust. Also available is a mobile app for even more convenience. This company has been featured in media such as The New York Times, CNBC, TechCrunch, Glamour, Bustle, Bedsider, Refinery 29, etc.
Products and Pricing
The company’s mission is to provide patients in the United States with the cheapest possible healthcare that still is effective at treating their conditions. The website indicates that they offer treatments for a wide range of issues such as:
✔ Hair loss
✔ Cold sores and flu
✔ Sinus infections
✔ Acid reflux, etc.
The pharmacy works with a team of licensed medical practitioners, all of whom are certified to issue treatments and whose identities can be found on the website. This way, each of the medical professionals can be checked for illegitimate credentials in case of any suspicions. The prescription policy also prevents their medical staff from writing prescriptions that don’t treat any conditions not listed on their website. They also cannot write prescriptions for substances that are controlled by the DEA. They have also received certification from LegitScript as an internet pharmacy. LegitScript has determined that the website meets acceptable standards for transparency, validity, and safety. It also monitors the website and can be contacted if any problems arise.
Payment and Shipping
Payments can be covered with a debit or a credit card. Insurance can cover the medications prescribed, depending on the medicines prescribed and the health plan of the insurance policy. Insurance won’t cover the visitation fee of $25, but that is a lot less than most insurance co-pays. The drugstore offers delivery and prescription transfers in many states of America.
The website’s design perfectly complements their logo of a slice of lemon and provides users with all the necessary company information like contact details, registration, shipping, payment, etc. for their reading. The LegitScript certification is legit and can be reviewed with the provider itself to assuage any doubts. Their pharmacy delivers medications to patients on their doctor’s recommendation and provides a monthly delivery service for conditions that require regular treatment. The company has also provided a prescription policy that shows users of the online doctor’s office what they can prescribe and what they can’t prescribe. Also available are a few customer testimonials and an FAQ section. They are filled with glowing reviews and some more information that others have looked for. There is no actual Contact’ page on the website. However, there is contact information at the bottom of each web page and phone number at the top of each page (beside the LemonAid logo).
LemonAidHealth.com is not a scam; it is a legitimate provider of medication and medical advice with proper credentials. It has set out its purpose and its limitations very clearly, and thus, it is a website with a 3-star rating.
