Services Provided – No Medical Care or Advice by Plume
As an important note, there is no single provider of medical care called “Plume”. Rather, Plume offers an online communication platform for Providers and their patients to connect via the Site through the use of synchronous and asynchronous telecommunications technologies. The Site facilitates communication between patients and Providers.
Plume does not provide medical advice or care. Plume contracts with Plume Health Medical, an independent, physician-owned medical group with a network of United States based Providers who provide clinical telehealth services. Plume provides administrative and business support services to Plume Health Medical. Plume Health Medical Providers deliver clinical services via the Plume platform to their patients. Plume licenses the “PLUME HEALTH MEDICAL GROUP” 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 Plume Health Medical. Providers are not contracted or employed by Plume. The Providers, and not Plume, are responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care they render to you. Plume and Plume Health Medical 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 Plume and are merely using the Site as a way to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from them alone, and not from Plume. Your interactions with the Providers via the Site are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither Plume, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Site or Service or provide a link to the Service, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via the Site or Service, nor any information obtained on the Site. Plume 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 Site or Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risks associated herewith.
Plume does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Providers who deliver services via the Site or Service. You will be provided with available Providers based solely on the information you submit to the Site. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider.
The content of the Site 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 Plume. 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 Plume, or in connection with any communications supported by Plume, 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 Plume facilitates your selection of, and communications with, Providers, Plume does not provide medical services, and the doctor-patient relationship is between you and the Plume Health Medical 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 Plume Health Medical directly for any questions regarding your care or medical treatment.
Not for Emergencies
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD DIAL “911” IMMEDIATELY.
Plume’s Site 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 Site. 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 Plume Health Medical and Providers through the Site. You agree that Plume is a third-party beneficiary of the Patient Consent and has the right to enforce it against you.
Certain products available through the Site require a valid prescription by a licensed healthcare provider. You will not be able to obtain a prescription product unless you have completed a consultation with one of the Providers through the Site, the Provider has determined the prescription product is appropriate for you and the Provider has written a prescription.
If a Provider determines a prescription product is appropriate for you and writes a prescription, you may fill it through the Pharmacy by using the Site, or you may fill the prescription at any pharmacy of your choice as prompted during your use of the Service. Prescriptions fulfilled by the Pharmacy do not use child-resistant packaging and prescription products will not be dispensed in child-resistant containers.
If you complete a consultation with a Provider and fill a prescription through the Pharmacy, the prescription product will be shipped to you by the Pharmacy.
Neither Plume nor Plume Health Medical endorse any specific medication, pharmacy, or pharmacologic product. If a Provider prescribes a medication, the Provider will limit supply based upon state regulations and will only prescribe a medication as determined in the Provider’s own discretion and professional judgment. There is no guarantee a prescription will be written. Providers do not prescribe DEA controlled substances or scheduled medications, or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. Providers reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of the Services.
You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided product information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription. Plume and Plume Health Medical fully honor patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct Plume Health Medical to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
Not an Insurance Product
Neither Plume nor Plume Health Medical are insurers. The Services are not insurance products, and the amounts you pay to Plume or Plume Health Medical are not insurance premiums. If you desire any type of health or other insurance, you will need to purchase such insurance separately.
Availability of Services
Plume and Plume Health Medical operate subject to state and federal regulations, and the Services may not be available in your state. You represent that you are not a person barred from enrolling for or receiving the Services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdictions in which you may be located. Access to and use of the Site or the Services is limited exclusively to users located in States within the United States where the Services are available.

Ordering and Purchasing of Services or Products

We may require additional information regarding your order if you have not provided all the information required by us. Once a properly completed order and authorization of your form of payment is received, we will process your order and Product for shipment. We do not accept orders from dealers, wholesalers, or other customers who intend to resell items offered on our Site.

Typographical Errors and Incorrect Pricing
In the event a Product or Service is listed at an incorrect price due to typographical error or error in pricing information received from a third party, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for the Products or Services listed at the incorrect price. We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit or debit card charged. If your credit or debit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we will promptly issue a credit to your credit or debit card account in the amount of the charge.
You can purchase services and items on the Site. To simplify the user experience on the Site, you are able to pay for your purchases via the Site with Plume serving as payment processing agent on your behalf. If you elect to purchase a service from Plume Health Medical or an item (e.g., a prescription product) from the Pharmacy listed on our Site, then the total price you pay includes the amount charged by Plume Health Medical for the service, as well as the amount charged by the Pharmacy. We also charge a subscription fee for you to use and access the Site and its features via your user account. We collect the amounts charged by the pharmacy and Plume Health Medical on your behalf and pass through to them the payment for their actual charges. Before making a purchase, you will see an itemized invoice listing the actual charges by Plume Health Medical for the services, the pharmacy for the prescription products, and us for the online membership fee.
Payment processing services for our Site are provided by a secure payment platform and are subject to the secure payment platform user agreement . As a condition of Plume enabling payment processing services through secure payment platform you agree to provide Plume accurate and complete information about you and your business, and you authorize Plume to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by platform. You and Plume agree that the payment method you submit may be used automatically by Plume or its payment processors for any of your responsibilities for payment. If a credit card account is being used for a transaction, Plume may obtain preapproval for an amount up to the amount of the payment. If you enroll to make recurring payments automatically, all charges and fees will be billed to the payment method you designate during the setup process. You have the right to revoke this authorization by contacting Plume via firstname.lastname@example.org at least fifteen (15) days prior to the scheduled payment date. You understand and acknowledge that Services may be cancelled or withheld if you revoke this authorization, and that you are still responsible for all charges incurred by you or are otherwise owed to Plume. This authorization will remain in full force and effect until revoked by you or Plume. If you want to designate a different payment method or if there is a change in your payment method, you must change your information online. This may temporarily delay your ability to make online payments while we verify your new payment information.
If you purchase a subscription to our Services, your subscription is continuous and will be automatically renewed at the end of the applicable subscription period, unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the then-current subscription period. If you cancel your subscription, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. Plume may change the price for your Plume subscription, from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. Subject to applicable law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Plume Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with a price change, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Services prior to the price change going into effect.

No Third Party Rights
Supplemental Terms Applicable to Providers
To be a healthcare provider using the Site (for purposes of this Section 20, “Provider” or “you”) you must be a licensed physician, nurse practitioner, or healthcare professional contracted or employed by Plume Health Medical, 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 Plume users (including, but not limited to, your Plume Health Medical patients) is directly between you and the patient. The patient will never have a physician-patient relationship with Plume. Plume 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 Plume Health Medical is solely responsible for all billings and collections from patients and other consumers, and Plume shall have no liability whatsoever to Provider with respect to any amounts owed by any patient or other consumer to Provider.
Plume 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 Plume agree that Plume is not providing to customers, patients, or anyone else, medical advice or legal advice. THE PLUME SITE AND THE SERVICES ARE NOT MEANT TO SUBSTITUTE OR MODIFY YOUR PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT IN ANY WAY.
Provider will use the Site and Services only in accordance with applicable standards of good medical practice. While software products such as the Site 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 Site and Services, and the provision of medical services to Provider’s patients. In this regard, Provider releases Plume and waives any and all potential claims against Plume as a result of Provider’s use of the Site 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 Plume 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 Plume, regardless of the cause if such claim arises for any reason whatsoever, out of Provider’s use or operation of the Site and Services. To the extent applicable, Provider will obtain Plume’s prior written consent to any settlement or judgment in which Provider agrees to any finding of fault of Plume or defect in the Site or Services. Plume 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.
If you submit, upload, transmit, or post any consents, notices, advice, recommendations, comments, files, videos, images, or other materials to us or our Site (“Provider Content”) or provide any Provider Content to patients or other consumers, you agree not to provide any Provider Content that (a) is defamatory, abusive, libelous, unlawful, obscene, threatening, harassing, fraudulent, pornographic, or harmful, or that could encourage criminal or unethical behavior, (b) violates or infringes the privacy, copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secrets, or intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or (c) contains or transmits a virus or any other harmful component.

Dispute Resolution; Arbitration Agreement
We will try to work in good faith to resolve any issue you have with the Site, including without limitation, Products and Services ordered or purchased through the Site, if you bring that issue to the attention of our customer service department. However, we realize that there may be rare cases where we may not be able to resolve an issue to a customer’s satisfaction.
If you desire to assert a claim against Plume, and you therefore elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to Plume, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim (“Notice”). The Notice to Plume should be addressed to: Plume, Inc., Attn: Legal, 303 S. Broadway, #200-357, Denver, CO 80209 (“Notice Address”). If Plume desires to assert a claim against you and therefore elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Plume, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If Plume and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Plume may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Plume or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration from the American Arbitration Association at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Plume receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than US $2,000.
YOU AND PLUME AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Plume agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
