As the pandemic continues to limit access to in-person healthcare services, telemedicine providers play an increasingly important role in providing services such as prescriptions and medical consultations. In response to this surge in demand, LegitScript is currently discounting application fees and first year annual monitoring fees for eligible telemedicine providers who apply for LegitScript certification by July 31.

Certification through LegitScript is an important service for telemedicine providers. LegitScript approval is known throughout the online advertising, social media, regulatory, and payment sectors; it is recognized by Visa, Google, Bing, and other major payment service providers. Certification helps merchants in highly regulated healthcare markets open doors in these sectors and keep those doors open.

For telemedicine and telehealth providers, online advertising and search engine optimization are essential tools to growing a business. LegitScript Certification can help providers promote their services online.

“People trust Google to surface relevant and trustworthy search results,” said Zachariah Reitano, founder of Roman digital health clinic for men. “Google and Bing then rely on LegitScript’s deep expertise in healthcare, payments, e-commerce, government and law enforcement to determine which sites are trustworthy. As a result, working with LegitScript has made working with Google and Bing much easier.”

Major credit card networks, such as Visa and Mastercard, make certification mandatory for telemedicine and telehealth providers. LegitScript’s expertise helps applicants identify and correct inadvertent errors in compliance with card brand rules and pharmacy regulators.

The one-time application fee for telemedicine and telehealth providers is now $500 (discounted from $975) and the first year of monitoring is $1,495 (typically $1,995). This limited-time discount ends July 31.
