Duration Health

COVID-19

How can Duration Health help me prepare for COVID-19?

Our Med Kits can help you practice social distancing and treat common acute medical issues at home, without further burdening your local healthcare resources. We can help you stay home and save lives.

Was Duration Health created to address the COVID-19 crisis?

No. Duration Health launched in January 2019, before the COVID-19 crisis. When we launched, we anticipated we would one day serve patients during a public health crisis, but we never imagined it would happen so quickly after our launch.

Are you still shipping Med Kits?

Yes, we remain operational and focused on our mission to provide urgent medical care when routine care is unavailable. Certain items on our formulary have limited availability.

Does Duration Health provide medications to treat COVID-19?

Duration Health does not provide or claim to provide any item to prevent, treat or cure COVID-19. Furthermore, we do not provide medications discussed in the media as experimental treatments for COVID-19, such as hydroxycholoroquine.

Only your Duration Health provider can decide, based on your medical history and other factors, whether it is medically appropriate for you to receive prescriptions. We do not sell prefabricated bags of pharmaceuticals. Each Duration Health Med Kit is custom assembled, tailored to each individual patient's needs.

You must complete the included online telehealth visit, including a complete medical history and ID verification, before any prescriptions are issued. You may not be eligible to receive items pictured or described on this site. Furthermore, renewal of your prescriptions is contingent upon continued medical appropriateness. Generics only. Brand names are listed on our site for your reference, but in most cases, only generic (non-brand) medications are included in our Med Kits. No controlled substances. Our formulary excludes controlled substances like opioids, benzodiazepines, and other potentially addictive medications. Treatment not guaranteed. No medication is guaranteed to work or guaranteed to treat a particular condition or disease. Use medications only as directed by a physician. Medication uses listed on this site are for educational purposes only and are not intended to represent indications for treatment. Duration Health is not a pharmacy and does not sell medications directly. To be able to deliver a customized kit of medications, Duration Health has partnered with a third-party mail order pharmacy. You may request that any prescriptions be sent to an alternate pharmacy. Email support only. Our providers are available via email to answer questions about your Med Kit. For non-emergency use only. In an emergency, call 911 or seek local emergency care. No routine care. Duration Health email support cannot be used for routine primary care.

As a condition of purchase, you must consent to use of these medications only when regular access to medical care is unavailable.
