When is Wildcat 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 Wildcat Care 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 Wildcat Care. If your health concern cannot be addressed through Wildcat Care, you may be directed to the ACU clinic or other location for care.

Can I get a prescription?
Wildcat Care providers are licensed and able to prescribe certain medications as part of your care plan, if clinically appropriate. Examples of medications prescribed by Wildcat Care providers include antibiotics, inhalers, eyedrops, and antihistamines, as well as other therapeutic medications. Wildcat 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, Wildcat 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.

Wildcat 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. Wildcat 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 our 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 Wildcat Care support at 833-484-6359 or by emailing

Can I get a discount on my prescription?

For your convenience and with your consent, patient records will be shared with the ACU medical clinic and ACU counseling center.  If you want to share your records with a physician or psychologist outside of Wildcat Care or ACU, you can print or email your records, or call 833-484-6359 to have us send a copy of your Wildcat Care records to your provider.
