Healthcare Merchant Certification isn’t just for pharmacies. It includes telemedicine and telehealth providers, and it’s mandatory for some major credit card networks and online advertising platforms.
Without certification from a recognized entity such as LegitScript, many banks, advertising programs, social media platforms, and e-commerce websites will terminate your account.
