Note, Cerebral is not a medical group. Any telehealth consults obtained through our Website and/or App are provided by independent medical practitioners including, but not limited to, Cerebral Medical Group, P.A. (collectively, “CMG”), an independent provider group with a network of United States based health care providers (each, a “Provider”). (See the Section below titled Supplemental Terms Applicable to Providers.) CMG (or your own medical provider if you do not use a CMG Provider) is responsible for providing you with a Notice of Privacy Practices describing its collection and use of your health information, not Cerebral. If you do not agree to be bound by those terms, you are not authorized to access or use our Website or App, and you must promptly exit our Website or App.
THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION SECTION OF THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MUTUAL ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT REQUIRES YOU AND CEREBRAL AND/OR CMG TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH EACH OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION. PLEASE REVIEW THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION SECTION OF THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND HAVE TAKEN TIME TO CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS IMPORTANT DECISION.
CMG Providers deliver clinical services via the Cerebral platform to their patients. Cerebral licenses the “CMG” brand name to the independently owned and operated medical practices that use its platform and its administrative, business support, and other services. Providers are independently contracted or employed by the CMG. Providers are not contracted or employed by Cerebral. The Providers, and not Cerebral, are responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care they render to you. Cerebral and CMG do not provide any legal advice or representations in any way regarding any legal issues associated with advice, information, goods, or services offered by a Provider, including but not limited to any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any state or federal laws and regulations.
The Providers are independent of Cerebral and are merely using the Website and App as a way to communicate with you. Cerebral does not own or have an ownership interest in CMG and CMG does not own or have an ownership interest in Cerebral. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from them alone, and not from Cerebral. Your interactions with the Providers via the Website and App are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither Cerebral, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Website and App or Service or provide a link to the Service, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via the Website and App or Service, nor any information obtained on the Website and App. Cerebral does not recommend or endorse any specific Providers, tests, physicians, medications, products, or procedures. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Providers or information delivered by the Providers via the Website and App or Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risks associated herewith.
Cerebral does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Providers who deliver services via the Website and App or Service. You will be provided with available Providers based solely on the information you submit to the Website and App. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider.
The content of the Website and App and the Services, including without limitation, text, copy, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics, and other visuals, is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind by Cerebral. You should always seek the advice of your qualified health care professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions. All information provided by Cerebral, or in connection with any communications supported by Cerebral, is intended to be for general information purposes only, and is in no way intended to create a provider-patient relationship as defined by state or federal law. While Cerebral facilitates your selection of, and communications with, Providers, Cerebral does not provide medical services, and the doctor-patient relationship is between you and the CMG Provider you select.
The medical services, treatment, and care you receive may vary depending on the Provider you interact with. Please contact your Provider or CMG directly for any questions regarding your care or medical treatment.
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD DIAL “911” IMMEDIATELY.
Cerebral’s Website, App and Services are not for medical emergencies or urgent situations. You should not disregard or delay to seek medical advice based on anything that appears or does not appear on the Website and App. If you believe you have an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
You should seek emergency help or follow up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed. You should continue to consult with your primary provider and other healthcare professionals as recommended. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider concerning questions you have regarding a medical condition and before stopping, starting, or modifying any treatment or modification.
Risks of Telehealth Services. Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare services using electronic communications, information technology or other means between a healthcare provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. While the provision of health care services using telehealth may offer certain potential benefits, there are also potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. The telehealth services are not a substitute for in-person health care in all cases. In order to use the Service, you will be required to review and agree to an informed consent regarding the use of telehealth (the “Patient Consent”) that will be provided to you by CMG and Providers through the Website and/or App. You agree that Cerebral is a third-party beneficiary of the Patient Consent and has the right to enforce it against you.

To be a healthcare provider using the Website and App (for purposes of this Section, “Provider” or “you”) you must be a licensed physician, nurse practitioner, or healthcare professional contracted or employed by CMG, and must agree to comply with all laws, medical board rules, and other rules and regulations applicable to you as a Provider or otherwise. Your relationship with the Cerebral users (including, but not limited to, your CMG patients) is directly between you and the patient. The patient will never have a physician-patient relationship with Cerebral. Cerebral does not practice medicine and offers no medical services. As set forth more fully below, Provider is solely responsible for all agreements, consents, notices, and other interactions with patients and other consumers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Provider and CMG are solely responsible for all billings and collections from patients and other consumers, and Cerebral shall have no liability whatsoever to Provider with respect to any amounts owed by any patient or other consumer to Provider.
Cerebral does not provide any medical advice, legal advice, or representations in any way regarding any legal or medical issues associated with Provider, goods, or services offered by Provider, including but not limited to any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any state or federal laws and regulations. Provider should seek legal counsel regarding any legal and compliance issues, and should not rely on any materials or content associated with the Services in determining Provider’s compliance obligations under law. Provider and Cerebral agree that Cerebral is not providing to customers, patients, or anyone else, medical advice or legal advice. THE CEREBRAL WEBSITE, THE APP AND THE SERVICES ARE NOT MEANT TO SUBSTITUTE OR MODIFY YOUR PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT IN ANY WAY.
Provider will use the Website, the App and Services only in accordance with applicable standards of good medical practice and applicable law. While software products such as the Website, the App and Services can facilitate and improve the quality of service that Provider can offer patients, many factors, including but not limited to the provider/patient relationship can affect a patient outcome, and with intricate and interdependent technologies and complex decision-making it is often difficult or impossible to accurately determine what the factors were and in what proportion they affected an outcome. Provider shall be solely responsible for its use of the Website, the App and Services, and the provision of medical services to Provider’s patients. In this regard, Provider releases Cerebral and waives any and all potential claims against Cerebral as a result of Provider’s use of the Website, the App and Services, and the provision of services to Provider’s patients.
As a result of the complexities and uncertainties inherent in the patient care process, Provider agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Cerebral harmless from any claim by or on behalf of any patient of Provider, or by or on behalf of any other third party or person claiming damage by virtue of a familial or financial relationship with such a patient, which is brought against Cerebral, regardless of the cause if such claim arises for any reason whatsoever, out of Provider’s use or operation of the Website, the App and Services. To the extent applicable, Provider will obtain Cerebral’s prior written consent to any settlement or judgment in which Provider agrees to any finding of fault of Cerebral or defect in the Website, the App or Services. Cerebral will promptly notify Provider in writing of any claim subject to this indemnification, promptly provide Provider with the information reasonably required for the defense of the same, and grant to Provider exclusive control over its defense and settlement.

You are not permitted to use these Marks without our prior written consent or the consent of such third party which may own the Marks.
You and Cerebral and/or CMG agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy, whether based on past, present or future events, arising out of or relating to: this Agreement and prior versions thereof (including the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof); the Website and/or App; any content currently or previously available on or through the Website and/or App; any Products or Services; your relationship with Cerebral and/or CMG; your user data; the threatened or actual suspension, deactivation, or termination of your Account or this Agreement; payments made by you or any payments made or allegedly owed to you; any promotions, benefits, or other offers; and any other federal and state statutory and common law claims (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction (which shall be exclusively in the state or federal courts located in San Francisco, CA) to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s data or copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. All disputes concerning the arbitrability of a Dispute (including disputes about the scope, applicability, enforceability, legality, revocability, or validity of the Arbitration Agreement) will be decided by the arbitrator, except as expressly provided herein.
YOU UNDERSTAND, ACKNOWLEDGE, AND AGREE THAT YOU AND CEREBRAL AND/OR CMG ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL FOR ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
You acknowledge and agree that you and Cerebral and/or CMG are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class in any purported class, collective, or consolidated proceeding. Further, unless you and Cerebral and CMG otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class, collective, consolidated or representative proceeding.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Agreement. The AAA Rules are available at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879 or any subsequent applicable telephone number. The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. It is your and Cerebral’s and/or CMG’s intent that the FAA and AAA Rules will preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue will be resolved under the laws of the State of California. This Agreement governs to the extent it conflicts with the AAA Rules or FAA.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration and a separate form for California residents at adr.org. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Unless you and Cerebral and CMG otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Cerebral and CMG submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. The prevailing party in arbitration will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
Agreement to Contract Pharmacy Relationship. You have a right to select any pharmacy of your choice to fill prescriptions obtained through our service. For prescriptions you will choose to have filled through our service, you agree to fulfillment of the prescription through our contract Pharmacy, as follows:
Authorization to Fill Your Prescription Order and Bill Your Insurance Company
Anytime you present your prescription(s) and your prescription insurance billing information, you are authorizing Truepill Pharmacy or one of its affiliates to bill the fee for your prescription to your insurance company or its agents, and you agree to pay any out-of-pocket copayment amount assigned by your insurance company.
Policies and Procedures. Payment in full for services, including any copayments assigned by your insurance company, are due at the time services are performed or medications are picked up or delivered. As the patient/guarantor, you are financially responsible for any fees and costs associated with any services or products you receive from our pharmacy.
Co-payments will be collected at the time of service either directly by the Pharmacy or by Cerebral on behalf of the Pharmacy.
As the patient/guarantor, it is your responsibility to know your insurance benefits and to provide our pharmacy with accurate and current insurance information.
If you are a patient with a secondary insurance, a coupon, or other discount permitted by law and your insurance company, it is your responsibility to provide both your insurance identification card, secondary insurance identification card, coupon, or other authorized coupon or discount card. If our pharmacy does not have the proper information for a secondary insurance, including coupons, the secondary insurance will not be billed. If your secondary insurance, coupon, or other discount is legal and permitted by your primary insurance, the pharmacy will collect payment from that secondary payor.
Truepill or one of its affiliates will bill your insurance as applicable, however, you are ultimately liable for any fees and costs not covered or paid by your insurance. Questions about non-payment should be directed to your insurance company. In the event that your medication is not covered by your insurance company for any reason including, but not limited to: drug not covered, non-participating pharmacy, out-of-network pharmacy, prior authorization required, step therapy required, or other rejection message the pharmacy staff, or Cerebral on behalf of Pharmacy staff, will review this information with you including information about how to obtain prior authorization (if applicable). You have the option of paying the pharmacy cash at our Usual & Customary rate if your medication or order is not covered by your insurance.
Patient Responsibility. I understand and agree that I am financially responsible for all charges for any and all services rendered.
I understand that while my insurance may confirm my benefits, confirmation of benefits is not a guarantee of payment and that I am responsible for any unpaid balance.
I understand and agree that it is my responsibility to know if my insurance has any deductible, co- payment, co-insurance, out-of-network, usual and customary limit, prior authorization requirements or any other type of benefit limitation for the services I receive and I agree to make payment in full.
I agree to inform the pharmacy of any changes in my insurance coverage. If my insurance has changed or is terminated at the time of service, I agree that I am financially responsible for the balance in full.
By agreeing to these terms of service, I am attesting that the information above has been communicated with me, I had the opportunity to ask questions, I had the opportunity to have my prescriptions transferred to another pharmacy in lieu of agreeing to have Truepill fulfill the prescription, and I have the opportunity to transfer my prescriptions to another pharmacy at any point in the future regardless of my agreement to the terms of service.
