With state license: HealthTap physicians can only prescribe in States where they hold a valid license to practice and only for patients who belong to that physician's Virtual practice. Additionally , neither narcotics or drugs for psychiatric or mood disorders can be prescribed via HealthTap. Some patients subsequently visit HealthTap Drs in person, in which case all manner of medications can be prescribed.
