3. Consent to Use of Telehealth Services

As part of the Service, Zest may enable you to obtain certain telehealth consultations and treatment in connection with such program by facilitating the connection between you and one or more licensed healthcare providers (each, a «Provider»). Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare services using electronic communications, information technology, or other means between a Provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. While the provision of healthcare services using telehealth may offer certain potential benefits, there are also potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. In order to utilize all features of the Service, you will be required to review and agree to the consent to use of telehealth services. The consent to use of telehealth services is hereby incorporated into these Terms by reference and constitutes a part of these Terms. The services you receive from Providers are not intended to replace a primary care physician relationship or be your permanent medical home. You may form an ongoing treatment relationship with some Providers. However, your initial visit with a Provider will begin as a consultation and will not necessarily give rise to an ongoing treatment relationship. You should seek emergency help or follow-up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed, and continue to consult with your primary care physician and other healthcare professionals as recommended. We may make arrangements for follow-up care either through Zest affiliated Providers or other healthcare providers. Among the benefits of our Services are improved access to healthcare professionals and convenience. However, as with any health service, there are potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. These risks include, but may not be limited to:

  • In rare cases, information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g., poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate healthcare decision making by the Provider;
  • Delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failures of the electronic equipment. If this happens, you may be contacted by phone or other means of communication;
  • In rare cases, a lack of access to all of your health records may result in adverse drug interactions, hypoglycemic events, allergic reactions or other judgment errors;
  • Although the electronic systems we use will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, in rare instances, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal health information.

By accepting these Terms, you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the following:

  • You understand that you may expect the anticipated benefits from the use of the Zest Services in your care, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured.
  • You understand that the laws that protect the privacy and security of health information apply to telehealth, and you have received Zest’s Notice of Privacy Practices, which describes these protections in more detail.
  • Your Provider may determine that the Services are not appropriate for some or all of your treatment needs, and accordingly may elect not to provide telehealth services to you through the Service.

4. Privacy Policy

Please see our Privacy Policy at https://carebyzest.com/privacy-policy for a description of how we may collect, use and disclose your personal information.

2. Individual Pricing and Payment Terms. If you are not accessing or using the Service under your HMO or employer provider, then you are accessing or using the Service on an individual basis.

3. Optional Continued Coverage. If your HMO or employer provider has arranged with Zest to pay the fees or charges, or any portion of the fees or charges, then such fees or charges are Covered Fees and will be subject to a separate agreement between Zest and the HMO or employer provider. In the event that you are no longer eligible for such coverage under a HMO or from an employer provider (e.g., if the HMO is canceled, the employer no longer offers such benefit or you are no longer employed by the employer provider) then you will have the option to (i) assume any and all unpaid fees and continue use of the Service or (ii) terminate the Services. Please check with your HMO or employer provider to determine the level of coverage and/or Covered Fees that your HMO or employer provider will provide, if any, and if any additional fees apply to you. If you do not have insurance coverage for the Service, or if payment or coverage is denied by your HMO or employer provider, and you have used the Service, you acknowledge and agree that you will be personally responsible for all fees or charges. Zest offers no guarantee that your HMO or employer provider will be responsible for such fees or charges.

6. Cancellation. In the event you wish to cancel your subscription, you shall cancel the subscription on or before the end of the month, for your next month of subscription. Zest reserves the right to apply a subscription payback on a prorated basis provided that the subscriber shall request for the cancellation and a refund before the end of the month, for the following month’s subscription.

If you dispense products to others, including for resale, you acknowledge and agree that you shall be breaching these Terms and that Zest is likely to suffer irreparable harm as a result of its contracts with suppliers under which Zest is obligated to make reasonable efforts to prevent resale.
