All of the participating Healthcare Providers are independent contractors, and are not employed by US Health. Healthcare Providers may record video conference consultations for the diagnosis/treatment purposes, and US Health may record telephone calls for quality purposes. US Health itself does not provide any medical or Healthcare Provider services.
The flat fee for a remote consultation with a Healthcare Provider (the “Service Fee”)is $39.00, andis fully earned and payable upon the initial registration of the patient with the Platform or, subsequently, upon any request by the patient for a follow-up consultation (such as in the case of a required renewal of a recommendation for the use of medical marijuana (the “Recommendation”) or assistance of the Healthcare Provider in obtaining or renewing a Medical Marijuana Identification Card (an “MMIC”)). The Service Fee covers US Health’s services and the Healthcare Provider’s services. Once you pay the Service Fee to us, we will transfer to the Healthcare Provider the amount of the Healthcare Provider’s portion of the Service Fee, as determined in our agreement with the Healthcare Provider. The Service Provider will not charge you any additional fees for the consultation. We expect that the Service Fee will cover a consultation with the Healthcare Provider lasting 5 to 10 minutes. If your Healthcare Provider decides that your condition requires more time or further healthcare services, he or she will schedule a follow-up consultation directly with you, or advise you of the further required steps. The Service Fee is payable whether or not the consultation results in the issuing of the Recommendation or of the MMIC. In certain circumstances, the patient may qualify for a Service Fee discount.

Entire Agreement. These Terms, together with the Informed Consent to Telemedicine Services, which is incorporated herein by this reference, constitutes the entire agreement between us and you with respect to the subject matter hereof. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use the products or services of a third party that are provided through the Platform. In the event of any conflict between any such third-party terms and conditions and these Terms, these Terms will govern.
Governing Law; Waiver of Jury Trial. This agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law that would apply the law of another jurisdiction. Use of the Service or the Platform is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms, including, without limitation, this paragraph. To the extent a claim is not governed by the paragraph entitled “Binding Arbitration” below (the “Arbitration Clause”), US Health and you each hereby waive the right to a trial by jury in any court and in any suit, action or proceeding, whether in tort, contract, or otherwise, in which any such party is a party, as to any claim arising out of or in connection with these Terms, your or US Health’s rights and obligations under these Terms, the Service, the Platform, use of the Platform and/or the services and/or products that may be provided by or through or in connection with the Platform.
No Assignment; No Beneficiaries. This agreement is personal to you, and you may not assign it to anyone. If any provision of this agreement is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from this agreement and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. These Terms are not intended to benefit any third party, and do not create any third-party beneficiaries. Accordingly, these Terms may only be invoked or enforced by you or us.
Claim Limitation. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action that you may have arising out of or related to (i) use of the Service or of the Platform, or (ii) these Terms, must be filed by you within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
No Waiver. The failure of US Health to enforce any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver or limitation of US Health’s right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with that provision or any other provision of these Terms.
Arbitration of Disputes. You and US Health each agree to submit to binding arbitration in the event of a dispute, controversy or claim (each, a “Dispute”) arising out of or in connection with these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof (including the determination of the scope or applicability of these Terms to arbitrate), your or US Health’s rights and obligations under these Terms, the Service, the Platform, the use of the Platform, and/or the information, services and/or products that may be provided by or through or in connection with the Platform. The arbitration will be held in the State of New York before one arbitrator on an individual basis and not as a class action. You expressly waive any right you may have to arbitrate a dispute as a class action. You also expressly waive your right to a jury trial. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS (http://www.jamsadr.com). You may obtain a copy of the rules of JAMS by contacting the organization. You and US Health shall agree on one arbitrator to conduct the arbitration. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, the arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the JAMS rules. Each party shall be responsible for its own attorney, expert and other fees, unless such fees are awarded by the arbitrator to the prevailing party. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate US Health’s or its affiliates’ intellectual property rights, we may seek (and you will not contest) injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court with jurisdiction over US Health or the Platform, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
Arbitration Final. The arbitrator’s award is final and binding on all parties. The Federal Arbitration Act, and not any state law concerning arbitration, governs all arbitration under this clause. Any court having jurisdiction may enter judgment on the arbitrator’s award. If any part of this clause, other than waivers of class action rights, is deemed or found to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder shall remain enforceable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if the waiver of class action rights contained herein is not enforceable as to any person or persons, such non-enforceability shall apply to such person or persons only, and all other persons shall continue to be governed by the Arbitration Clause.
Giving Up Right of Class Action. These Terms provides that all Disputes will be resolved by binding arbitration and not in court or by jury trial. IF A DISPUTE IS ARBITRATED, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US Health AND ITS AFFILIATES, INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. WITHOUT LIMITATION, THIS INCLUDES GIVING UP YOUR RIGHTS TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AS SET FORTH IN ANY STATE STATUTE.
