When is SAGU Care available?
You can complete an online visit at any time, 24 hours a day.

How soon will I get a response?
Our goal is to provide a response within one hour, 24 hours a day.

Who makes the diagnosis?
A licensed, board-certified TimelyMD provider physician (MD), nurse practitioner (NP), or physician assistant (PA) will review and discuss your symptoms, make a diagnosis, and develop your treatment plan.

What if you can’t provide a diagnosis?
We do our best to treat you online, but not every condition can be treated via SAGU Care. If your health concern cannot be addressed through SAGU Care, you may be directed to another location for care.

Can I get a prescription?
SAGU Care providers are licensed and able to prescribe certain medications as part of your care plan, if clinically appropriate. Examples of medications prescribed by SAGU Care providers include antibiotics, inhalers, eyedrops, and antihistamines, as well as other therapeutic medications. SAGU Care providers can also refill short-term supplies of maintenance medications in the event of a patient’s transition to a new doctor or inability to get in touch with their primary care doctor due to limited hours or appointments. TimelyMD does believe in safe prescribing of medications and the need for a patient to have a relationship with their primary care doctor. As such, SAGU Care providers do not supply long-term medications for chronic illness and encourage patients to see their primary care doctor at least once a year.

SAGU Care providers do not provide prescriptions for controlled substances, lifestyle medications (such as Viagra or Cialis), hormone replacement therapies, or other potentially dangerous or addictive drugs.

TimelyMD is not an online pharmacy, and we cannot fill prescriptions. If a prescription medication is part of your treatment plan, it will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice. You are responsible for the cost of any prescriptions, over-the-counter treatments, or follow-up visits you may need related to prescriptions. SAGU Care counselors can not write prescriptions.

How can I get my prescription filled?
If a prescription is clinically appropriate, it will be sent to a local pharmacy of your choice. When you are filling out your intake information, you will select a local pharmacy that is convenient for you – it’s that easy.

Will my prescription be covered by my insurance policy?
Most pharmacies accept most insurance plans. That said, please verify that the pharmacy you select is within your covered network before sending your prescription. If needed, you can request a pharmacy change by calling SAGU Care support at 833-484-6359 or by emailing help@timely.md.

Can I get a discount on my prescription?

Yes! SAGU Care offers a FREE prescription discount card to all SAGU students. This card is accepted nationwide at more than 65,000 pharmacies. There is no enrollment fee and no limits on usage. On average, you could save 60%, and in some cases, 80% or more!

How much does a visit cost?

Is my visit covered by insurance?
If you incur charges for your visit, you may submit your receipt to your insurance company, but we cannot guarantee you will be reimbursed.

Will my provider know I’ve completed a visit?
If you are a SAGU Care patient, your visit records will be saved as part of your medical records. For your convenience and with your consent, patient records can be shared.  If you want to share your records with a physician outside of SAGU Care, you can print or email your records, or call 833-484-6359 to have us send a copy of your SAGU Care records to your provider.

Is my personal information safe?
All the information you provide is encrypted and protected. Our Terms of Service gives more information on how we protect the personal information provided through our website.

Do I have access to records of my visit(s)?
Yes. You can access your visit records at any time through your account.
