Your Relationship with Us
We are a technology company that makes available to individuals who register as members of the Service (“Members”) certain products and services sold or offered by FOLX Health and/or by the Affiliated Practices, third-party licensed clinicians, participating pharmacies (“Pharmacies”) and CLIA certified laboratories (“Labs”) (collectively, the “Providers”) or other vendors. Any services you receive from the Providers or other vendors may be subject to additional terms and conditions from those Providers or vendors.
With respect to the Providers, we act solely as a technology platform to connect you with the products and services offered by the Providers through the Service. We do not control or interfere with the Providers’ practice of medicine or any activity that requires licensure or certification and each of the Providers is solely responsible for the medical care and treatment or other services they provide to you. Please be aware that products and services offered by Providers and other vendors may be subject to delays, limitations and failures which are the responsibility of the Providers or the vendors, and not FOLX Health, and FOLX Health is not responsible for any losses, injuries or damages resulting from any such delays, limitations or failures related to a Provider’s or other vendor’s products and services. FOLX Health makes no representations or warranties about the suitability, reliability, timeliness or accuracy of the medical care and treatment provided by the Providers and/or any other products and services provided by Providers or other vendors. By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that FOLX Health is not a healthcare provider and that by using the Service, you are not entering into a doctor-patient or other health care provider-patient relationship with FOLX Health. By using the Service, you may, however, be entering into a doctor-patient or other health care provider-patient relationship with one or more Providers.
By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that the Providers may send you messages, reports, and emails via the Service regarding your care. You further understand and agree that it is your sole responsibility to monitor and respond to these messages, reports, and emails and that FOLX Health will not monitor these communications or otherwise participate in your care. Neither FOLX Health nor any Provider will be responsible and you will not hold FOLX Health or any Provider liable for any loss, injury, or claims of any kind resulting from your failure to read or respond to messages, reports and/or emails from your Providers or for your failure to comply with any treatment recommendations or instructions from your Provider(s).
Subscription Membership. FOLX Health offers the Service to Members on a subscription membership basis (a “Membership”). This means that Members pay a fixed monthly or annual fee for access to a wide range of services and resources offered to Members through the Platform, including but not limited to:
- Access to FOLX Health’s Platform to book visits with clinicians
- Access to the FOLX Community Platform
- Access to FOLX Health’s referral network for participating Providers
- Access to medical letters of support for surgery or name and gender marker changes
- Messaging with member support and clinical teams via your FOLX account, for resources, questions or care
- Support groups and mental health resources
- Discounted rates for medication and laboratory services
- Ability to send prescriptions directly to a Member’s local pharmacy of choice
- Additional resources and services made available by FOLX Health through the Platform from time to time
If Members choose a monthly Membership, Membership fees will automatically be charged to Members on a monthly basis or if Members choose an annual Membership, Membership fees will automatically be charged to Members on an annual basis until a Member cancels their Membership in accordance with FOLX Health’s cancellation policies summarized in the “Cancellation” section below.
Certain components of the Service are not included in Membership fees and are described in more detail in the “Fee-Based Services” section below. Additional information is available on the Website by clicking here.
Request Limited Access. You may access medical services from FOLX providers without the benefits of the full FOLX platform and asynchronous offerings. This limited access does not include use of the FOLX technology platform, including online appointment booking or access to your care team via your FOLX account. You will have access to FOLX Member Operations via our Help Center for any questions, concerns or follow ups after your visit. If you would like to book a visit outside of the FOLX platform you will need to contact our member operations team to book a visit.
Fee-Based Services. All Members regardless of Membership status are responsible for paying fees associated with their clinical consultations with Providers, a Member’s medication purchases, and a Member’s lab costs (together with any other fee-based products and services made available to you by FOLX Health, the “Fee-Based Services”) as follows:
- Clinical Consultations – A Member may elect to have fees for clinical consultations be submitted to the Member’s Insurance, or a Member will be responsible for self-paying all fees owed to an Affiliated Practice or Provider for a clinical consultation. Members who are self-paying fees will be charged at the point of booking the clinical consultation. Members who are paying using insurance will be charged a co-pay or coinsurance at the point of booking the clinical consultation and will be responsible for any fees insurance does not cover after the services have been rendered.
- Medication – If you are using our partner pharmacy for your medications, you will be invoiced at the time the medication is ordered and payment is required before your medication will be mailed to you. If you would prefer to pick up your medication at your local pharmacy of choice, you may use applicable insurance or pay out of pocket at the point of sale.
- Laboratory Testing and Services – If you are using a Quest lab facility, you will be invoiced for laboratory testing and services on your monthly billing date after your lab order is sent to Quest. If you are using TBD Health, Inc. to access STI testing through FOLX Health, you will be invoiced at the time that the test is ordered. If you are using any other non-Quest lab facility, you will be invoiced for laboratory testing and services directly by the lab. Members will be responsible for paying all invoices for laboratory testing and services using applicable insurance or self-pay options made available by FOLX Health.
You acknowledge and agree that amounts set forth in invoices from FOLX Health shall be immediately due and payable by you unless otherwise indicated. Fees for Fee-based Services may be modified by Folx Health at any time upon written notice to Members.
Insurance and Payment Authorization
To use your insurance for Fee-Based Services that you are responsible for when using the Service, you will be required to upload your insurance information to the Platform and validate that information for each visit with a Provider. By providing insurance information and/or validating that insurance information in connection with a transaction, you are expressly agreeing that FOLX Health (i) may use that insurance information to check your eligibility for products and services and to facilitate transactions with you through the Platform, and (ii) is authorized to submit a claim to your insurance carrier for your use of the Service, including any Fee-Based Services eligible for insurance reimbursement.
Please note that FOLX Health may not receive complete information from your health insurance plan, if applicable, regarding for example the applicable copay due for your clinical consultation. In these instances, you may be billed more than once with respect to a clinical consultation to account for additional copay amounts due, if any. Should FOLX Health not be in your network, or if you choose not to enter your insurance information into the Platform, you elect to be seen as self-pay, thereby waiving health plan claim submission. If your insurance does not cover an insurance claim you will be responsible for paying all associated amounts which are due and payable from you by an approved payment method described in more detail in the “Terms of Sale & Payment Processing” section below.
While we strive to make this process simple and transparent at the beginning of the transaction, your insurance company’s policies, deductible and/or copayments or coinsurance may affect the final amount you will pay for a clinical consultation, prescription medication or laboratory testing.
FOLX Health is committed to providing transparent pricing and we publish on the Website the cost of Membership and also a price list (available here) describing the cost of Fee-Based Services for Members who are out-of-network or uninsured, including fees for primary care and mental health clinical consultations, medication, and labs. The price list may be updated by FOLX Health from time to time in its discretion.
Our Membership cancellation policies are published on the Website and will apply to any request by you to cancel your Membership for the Service.
Our Appointment Cancellation Policy is also published on the Website and will apply to any cancellation requests for clinical services scheduled with a Provider.
The cancellation policies made available to you above in this Agreement, on or through the Website, during the process of booking an appointment, or otherwise by FOLX Health, are incorporated herein by reference. FOLX Health may update and modify its cancellation policies from time to time in its discretion.
Certain products available through the Platform 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 Platform or in-person as may be required by federal or state laws, 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 one of the Pharmacies by using the Platform, or you may fill the prescription at any pharmacy of your choice. Prescriptions fulfilled by the Pharmacies 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 one of the Pharmacies, the prescription product will either be shipped to you by the applicable Pharmacy or available for pick-up at a Pharmacy location in your community.
In some cases, the Service may not be the most appropriate way for you to provide information to, communicate with or seek medical care and treatment from a healthcare provider. For example, certain medical conditions may require an in-person procedure or a healthcare provider other than your Provider, or your Provider may determine that your diagnosis and/or treatment requires an in-person office visit or are otherwise not appropriately addressed through use of the Service. In such a case, you may receive notification that you will be unable to use the Service for the particular issue you submitted.
FOLX Health and its Providers are not able to provide healthcare services to minor children. If you are a parent of a minor child, you may request to speak with a Provider about general medical questions concerning children (for example, the type of gender affirming hormone therapy care available to children). In all cases, please note that FOLX Health and its Providers are not able to review or receive any specific information about your minor child, including but not limited to specific information related to your minor child’s medical history. Please do not send or disclose any information about a minor child’s medical history to FOLX Health and/or its Providers.
Consent to Use 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. 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 the Provider through the Platform.
Your Duty to Provide Information, Access, and Connectivity
You are responsible for providing and maintaining, at your own risk, option and expense, appropriate software and hardware capabilities (consistent with any technical, quality or other requirements described in the Service) to enable use of the Service, including but not limited to, a computer or mobile device with a video camera and Internet access. You are solely responsible for any fees, including Internet connection or mobile fees, that you incur when accessing the Service. You also have a duty to provide truthful, accurate and complete information in any forms, orders or other communications you submit to or through the Service. We reserve the right to change the access configuration, including any software, hardware or other requirements of the Service at any time without prior notice. Any intentional submission of false, inaccurate and/or incomplete information to FOLX Health is prohibited and may result in our suspension or termination of your right to use the Website, Service, and/or physical locations of FOLX Health, Affiliated Practices and/or Providers, removal of your account, and any such violations may possibly expose you to legal action and damages.
Protected Health Information
In connection with components of the Service, FOLX Health may receive certain medical information that may be protected under applicable laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 as amended, and its implementing regulations (collectively, “HIPAA”). Certain information provided to FOLX Health by the Providers may be protected by HIPAA (this information is called “PHI”). Your health information may also be protected under state law. To the extent FOLX Health receives PHI that is protected by HIPAA or information that is protected by state law, this information will be used and disclosed only as permitted by HIPAA and applicable state law. PHI does not include information that has been de-identified in accordance with HIPAA, or information that has had all identifiers, such as your name, address, email address, etc., removed.
Registration; Member Accounts, Passwords, and Security
You are obligated to register and set up an account in the Platform in order to access the Service, and the Service is available only to Members who have registered and have been granted accounts with usernames and passwords. You agree to accurately maintain and update any information about yourself that you have provided to FOLX Health or the Providers. If you do not keep such information current, or fail to submit truthful, accurate and complete information, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect as much, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and your use of the Service. You also agree to immediately notify FOLX Health of any unauthorized use of your username, password or any other breach of security that you become aware of involving or relating to the Service by contacting FOLX Health’s Help Center at https://support.folxhealth.com. In addition, you agree to keep confidential your username and password and to exit from your Member account at the end of each session.

You may not use anyone else’s account at any time and you may not allow others to use your account to access the Service.
When establishing an account, you will be required to provide a username and password that will be used as your login for your account.

In addition, persons with access to your computer, phone, mobile or other devices may be able to access the Service and information about you, including medical information, contained in the Service. It is your responsibility to affirmatively logout from your account when you are not actively using it. It is also your responsibility to secure and prevent unauthorized physical access to your computer, phone and other devices, and to protect the confidentiality of your username and password.
You are prohibited from violating, or attempting to violate, the security of the Service. Any such violations may result in criminal and/or civil penalties against you.

ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER – APPLICABLE TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW
Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America, before one arbitrator. If the dispute, claim or controversy exceeds $250,000, the arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “Rules”), and if not, the arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to the Rules and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures or similar process set forth in the Rules. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
In any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement, the arbitrator shall award to the prevailing party, if any, the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. If the arbitrator determines a party to be the prevailing party under circumstances where the prevailing party won on some but not all of the claims and counterclaims, the arbitrator may award the prevailing party an appropriate percentage of the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration.
YOU AND FOLX HEALTH AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
YOU AND FOLX HEALTH EACH HEREBY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY FOR DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, AND THIS WAIVER APPLIES REGARDLESS OF THE TYPE OF DISPUTE, WHETHER PROCEEDING UNDER CLAIMS OF CONTRACT OR TORT (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE) OR ANY OTHER THEORY.
Governing Law; Venue; Severability of Provisions
The Service is controlled and operated by FOLX Health from our offices within Massachusetts. Those who choose to access the Service from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent applicable. Access to the Service from jurisdictions where the contents of the Service are illegal or penalized is prohibited. Please also note that any individuals residing outside of the United States may not use the Service at this time.
The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this Agreement will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to any conflicts of law provisions.
All parts of this Agreement apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right. We both agree that if we cannot enforce a part of this Agreement as written, then that part will be replaced with terms that most closely match the intent of the unenforceable part to the extent permitted by law. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the invalidity of part of this Agreement will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. The section headings are for convenience and do not have any force or effect.
No Agency Relationship
Neither this Agreement, nor any Content, materials or features of the Service create any partnership, joint venture, employment, or other agency relationship between you and FOLX Health, the Affiliated Practices, or the other Providers. You may not enter into any contract on our behalf or bind us in any way.
You may not assign any of your rights under this Agreement, and any such attempt will be null and void. FOLX Health may, in its sole discretion, transfer, without further consent or notification, all contractual rights and obligations pursuant to this Agreement to any affiliate of FOLX Health or to another third party in the event that some or all of the business of FOLX Health is transferred to such other third party by way of merger, sale of its assets or otherwise.
Third-Party Links and Third Party Beneficiaries
Except as specifically set forth in this Agreement, including with respect to the indemnification obligations contained herein in favor of the Providers and the agreement to arbitration, we hereby expressly agree that there is no intent by either party to create or establish third-party beneficiary status rights or their equivalent in any other referenced individual, subcontractor or third party, including the Providers, and, except as specifically set forth in this Agreement, that no third party shall have any right to enforce any right or enjoy any benefit that is created or established under this Agreement.
