TimelyCare medical providers can evaluate and offer treatment options for many dermatologic issues, such as rashes, abrasions, dandruff, acne, and cold sores. If a provider determines that an in-person visit is needed, he/she will suggest next steps.
Due to licensing laws, TalkNow is the only service available outside of the United States. In order to use this service, students must download the TimelyCare app in the U.S. prior to any travel. Students also must use a U.S. phone number or VPN while abroad to access TalkNow services.
Yes! Just make sure your accessibility preferences on your device are enabled. When you download the TimelyCare mobile application, those settings will be applied to the app.

Hours and Timing
Treatment and Diagnosis
A licensed, board-certified TimelyCare provider will review and discuss your concerns, make a diagnosis, and develop your treatment plan.
We do our best to treat you remotely, and not every condition can be treated via TimelyCare. If your concern cannot be addressed through TimelyCare, you may be directed to another location for care.
TimelyCare providers are licensed and able to prescribe certain medications as part of your care plan, if clinically appropriate. TimelyCare providers can also refill short-term supplies of maintenance medications in the event of a patient’s transition to a new provider or inability to get in touch with their primary care provider due to limited hours or appointments. TimelyCare does believe in safe prescribing of medications and the need for a patient to have a relationship with their primary care provider. As such, TimelyCare providers do not supply long-term medications for chronic illness and encourage patients to see their primary care providers at least once a year.
TimelyCare providers do not provide prescriptions for controlled substances, lifestyle medications, or other potentially high-risk drugs.
TimelyCare 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. TimelyCare counselors cannot write prescriptions.
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.
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 TimelyCare support at 833-4-TIMELY.
Yes! We offer a FREE prescription discount card to all 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!
You can find this card in the TimelyCare App under the Additional Resources section.
Antibiotics only fight infections caused by bacteria. Like all drugs, they can be harmful and should only be used when necessary. Taking antibiotics when you have a virus can do more harm than good: you will still feel sick and the antibiotic could give you a skin rash, diarrhea, a yeast infection, or worse.
Antibiotics also give bacteria a chance to become more resistant to them. This can make future infections harder to treat. It means that antibiotics might not work when you really do need them. Because of this, it is important that you only use an antibiotic when it is necessary to treat your illness.
How can you help? When you have a cough, sore throat, or other illness, tell your provider you only want an antibiotic if it is really necessary. If you are not prescribed an antibiotic, ask what you can do to feel better and get relief from your symptoms.
Your health is important to us. As your healthcare providers, we promise to provide the best possible treatment for your condition. If an antibiotic is not needed, we will explain this to you and will offer a treatment plan that will help. We are dedicated to prescribing antibiotics only when they are needed, and we will avoid giving you antibiotics when they might do more harm than good.
