  • Co-branded Areas: Certain areas of the Service may be provided to you in association with third parties ("Co-Branded Areas") such as promotional partners, and may require you to disclose Personal Information to them. Such Co-Branded Areas will identify the third party and indicate if they have a privacy policy that applies to their collection and use of your information. If you elect to register for products and/or services, communicate with such third parties, or download their content or applications, at Co-Branded Areas, you may be providing your information to both us and the third party. Further, if you sign-in to a Co-Branded Area with a username and password obtained on the Service, your Personal Information may be disclosed to the identified third parties for that Co-Branded Area.

The terms and conditions stated herein (collectively, the “Agreement”) constitute a legal agreement between you (referred to sometimes as “user” or “you”) and Encompass Care Group, LLC (or the “Company”). In order to use the Service (defined below) and the associated Application (defined below), you must agree to the Terms and Conditions that are set out below. By using or receiving any services supplied to you by the Company (collectively, the “Service”), and/or accessing, downloading, installing, or using any associated application or website provided by the Company (including without limitation, the Encompass Care Group, LLC website located at Encompass Care Group, LLC) (collectively, the “Application”), you hereby expressly acknowledge and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the Agreement, and any future amendments and additions to this Agreement as published from time to time at the Encompass Care Group, LLC website or through the Service.

I. Medical Consultation Service

The Site may at any time offer Qualifying Patients one or more of the following:

  1. Information on licensed physicians, doctors of osteopathy, nurse practitioners, and health care providers and the services and facilities who wish to take appointments or publish their contact information on the Site (collectively hereafter “Licensed Health Care Provider(s)”).

  2. Concierge-type assistance in planning for healthcare procedures and appointments with Licensed Health Care Providers, especially as it relates to location and geographic-specific information in the area surrounding the Licensed Health Care Provider or facility.

  3. Development and gathering of healthcare records and healthcare information with retention of the same for use in Licensed Health Care Provider appointments and communications.

  4. Administrative support in connection with third-party financing and payment options for Licensed Health Care Provider services and submission of third-party insurance claims for reimbursement of healthcare expenses when possible.

In certain circumstances, telecommunications support using the Site for direct access to Licensed Health Care Providers and facilities with whom a qualifying patient has an existing Licensed Health Care Provider to patient relationship for communication, consultations, assessments, and ongoing treatment.

  6. In-person medical consultations with Licensed Health Care Providers.

II. Who May Access The Site

You may access and/or use the Site only if you have read, accepted, and agreed in full to each and every Term that is set forth herein or may be added, revised, or otherwise amended by Encompass Care Group, LLC. In addition, the Site may be used only by persons who are at least eighteen (18) years of age. Encompass Care Group, LLC does not seek through this Site to gather personal information from or about persons under the age of 18.

In addition, Encompass Care Group, LLC services shall be available only to Qualifying Patients that reside in a state, including the District of Columbia, that allows certain individuals with distinct and defined debilitating conditions or that are undergoing certain medical treatments to consume cannabis for medical use (“Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction(s)”). The services provided through the Site vary by qualifying patient debilitating condition and/or medical treatment as dictated by applicable state laws and regulations in the Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction in which you reside. Encompass Care Group, LLC services are subject to state laws and regulations and may change from time to time due to changes in such regulatory requirements.

III. Compliance with Applicable Law

A. Federal Law

Cannabis is currently listed as a Schedule I controlled substance pursuant to the federal Controlled Substances Act. As such, possession, distribution, cultivation, and/or manufacture of cannabis is illegal under federal law, regardless of whether your Licensed Health Care Provider has recommended cannabis to you as a therapeutic measure in compliance with state or other non-federal law.

Upon acceptance of this Agreement, you represent and warrant that you understand the varied legal risks associated with your use of cannabis for medical treatment, including arrest and prosecution under applicable federal laws. Should any criminal or civil administrative or legal actions be instituted against you for your use or possession of cannabis for medical treatment as recommended by a Licensed Health Care Provider you select through the Site, you will not hold Encompass Care Group, LLC or any of its Licensed Health Care Providers liable for any loss, injury, or claims of any kind resulting from those actions. You are solely responsible for maintaining a full understanding of the medical cannabis laws in the state and locality in which you reside.

B. State and Local Law in Medical Marijuana Jurisdictions

In order to gain access to and use the Site, you must demonstrate to the satisfaction of Encompass Care Group, LLC that you currently reside in an appropriate legal jurisdiction and meet applicable legal requirements for consumers of the products at hand. It is likely that only a valid, state-issued, non-expired identification card or driver’s license (collectively, “Identification”) shall be sufficient to demonstrate the required personal features.

Upon demonstration of location within a Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction through submission to the Site of your Identification or geo-location (as appropriate), Encompass Care Group, LLC shall seek to coordinate your initial communication with a Licensed Health Care Provider who can legally practice in the Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction in which you reside. We aim that you should not have access through the Site to a Licensed Health Care Provider who does not also practice in the same Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction of which you are a resident. Upon acceptance of this Agreement, you represent and warrant that you understand that there exist conflicts between federal and state law on cannabis.

IV. Medical Cannabis Recommendations

Encompass Care Group, LLC plays no role whatsoever in determining whether and to what extent medical cannabis may be an appropriate treatment for you. Whether and under what circumstances to recommend medical cannabis is in the sole discretion of your Licensed Health Care Provider following a good faith medical examination or series of examinations to be conducted in accordance with the applicable and governing state laws and regulations of the respective Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction, to determine whether cannabis would be effective as a treatment for your condition(s).

It is of the utmost importance to Encompass Care Group, LLC that a Licensed Health Care Provider’s determination regarding whether and under what circumstances to recommend the use of medical cannabis be determined solely by your Licensed Health Care Provider’s independent medical judgment after a good faith medical examination. While Licensed Health Care Providers are obligated to perform a good faith medical examination, Licensed Health Care Providers are in no way obligated to recommend to you the use of cannabis for your medical treatment. At no time shall you provide cash or any form of remuneration to either Encompass Care Group, LLC or to your Licensed Health Care Provider intended in whole or in part to induce your Licensed Health Care Provider to recommend the use of medical cannabis. While certain fees shall apply for your medical consultation with a Licensed Health Care Provider, there is no guarantee of any kind of a medical cannabis recommendation. All such Recommendations are solely within the professional medical judgment and discretion of the Licensed Health Care Provider.

Neither Encompass Care Group, LLC nor Licensed Health Care Providers make any warranties or guarantees that the use of medical cannabis would be an effective treatment for your medical condition(s). Should a Licensed Health Care Provider determine that you have a qualifying debilitating condition or that you are undergoing certain medical treatments that justify a recommendation for the use of medical cannabis (a “Patient Recommendation” or “Certification” or “Prescription”), you bear the sole responsibility of obtaining cannabis for your medical use within the Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction in which you reside. Note that wherever the term “prescription” appears in the Site, it is metaphorical, meant to ease common usage, and meant to refer to what is often called a medical marijuana “recommendation” or “certification” or "patient card" or "med card" by the applicable state government.

V. Your Relationship With Encompass Care Group, LLC

Encompass Care Group, LLC provides a platform for you to consult with your Licensed Health Care Provider and to obtain access to additional information regarding the use of cannabis for medical treatment, which you may or may not choose to utilize in planning your healthcare and wellness. The services provided through the Site are not a substitute for all direct healthcare services. The decision to focus on diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or both rests with you and your Licensed Health Care Provider, whom you select in your sole discretion based on your choice of availability times and an automated algorithm for assigning appointments to Licensed Health Care Providers.

By accepting the Terms of Use, you understand and agree that Encompass Care Group, LLC or your Licensed Health Care Provider may send you messages, reports, and emails, via the Site or otherwise, regarding the treatment of your condition. It is your responsibility to monitor these messages, reports, and emails. You agree that you will not hold Encompass Care Group, LLC liable for any loss, injury, or claims of any kind resulting from your failure to read these messages or for your failure to comply with any treatment recommendations contained in these messages.

VI. Consultative Service

If permitted by the Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction in which you reside, your Licensed Health Care Provider may use the Site to receive information from you as well as to provide advice or diagnosis to you. You acknowledge that your Licensed Health Care Provider providing such services through the Site might not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in-person and observing your physical condition, in each instance. Therefore, you acknowledge that it is possible that your Licensed Health Care Provider providing services through the Site might not be aware of, or reasonably able to ascertain, facts or information that would affect his or her opinion of your medical condition, needs, and/or appropriate treatment plan. By deciding to engage the services of the Site, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of this limitation and agree to assume the risk of this limitation. Furthermore, you agree and accept that: (i) the diagnosis you will receive may be limited and provisional; (ii) the opinion is not intended to replace all full medical evaluations or in-person visits with your other Licensed Health Care Providers; (iii) your Licensed Health Care Provider providing services through the Site may not have important information that is usually obtained through a physical examination; and (iv) the absence of a physical examination may affect your Licensed Health Care Provider’s ability to diagnose your condition, disease, or injury.

In order for your Licensed Health Care Provider to determine whether your medical condition(s) would benefit from the use of medical cannabis, certain Medical Cannabis Jurisdictions may require that you undergo an in-person medical examination or series of examinations with your Licensed Health Care Provider. Should your Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction require an in-person, physical medical examination or series of examinations prior to Patient Recommendation, Encompass Care Group, LLC may assist you in the coordination of an in-office visit or visits with a Licensed Health Care Provider. If you refuse or are unable to undergo such examination(s), your Licensed Health Care Provider could be prohibited from making any Patient Recommendation on your behalf. You understand and agree that the opinion expressed by a Licensed Health Care Provider using this Site is not that of Encompass Care Group, LLC and will not be used in any legal dispute against Encompass Care Group, LLC, including but not limited to litigation, arbitration, claim for disability benefits, claim for worker’s compensation, and/or malpractice claims.

VII. Duty to Provide Information and Access

If you consult with a Licensed Health Care Provider through the Site, you have a duty to provide appropriate real-time audio and video access (consistent with reasonable technical and quality requirements or any technical and quality requirements described on the Site) to enable an appropriate evaluation and connection by your Licensed Health Care Provider. You also have a duty to provide truthful, accurate, and complete responses on any patient forms or patient information requests Encompass Care Group, LLC or your Licensed Health Care Provider may provide through the Site.

VIII. Privacy Policy

Encompass Care Group, LLC understands the importance of confidentiality and privacy regarding your health information. Please see our Privacy Policy at this link for a description of how we may collect and use your personal information. In tandem with Encompass Care Group, LLC’s Privacy Policy, by entering into this Agreement you represent and warrant that you understand that certain healthcare records pertaining to any Patient Recommendation made on your behalf by your Licensed Health Care Provider may be subject to mandatory disclosure and production to relevant government authorities by either Encompass Care Group, LLC or its Licensed Health Care Providers under the applicable and governing laws and regulations of your Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction including federal laws governing that jurisdiction. Specifically, by entering into this Agreement you represent and warrant that you understand that copies of your medical records stating that you have been diagnosed with a serious medical condition or are undergoing certain medical treatments for which the medical use of cannabis is an appropriate remedy may be subject to mandatory disclosure and production either by Encompass Care Group, LLC or its Licensed Health Care Providers to relevant government authorities under the applicable and governing laws and regulations of your Medical Cannabis Jurisdiction.

IX. Credit Transactions

As part of the services on the Site, Encompass Care Group, LLC may facilitate your payment of certain fees for products and services for your purchase from time to time through the Site or via Stripe. When you pay by credit card, you hereby authorize Encompass Care Group, LLC to bill and charge the credit card indicated in your order for any fees and any other amounts provided for in your order as they become due and payable. In the event that your credit card expires or Encompass Care Group, LLC is otherwise unable to debit the applicable amounts from your credit card, Encompass Care Group, LLC shall provide notice to you, whereupon you shall immediately furnish Encompass Care Group, LLC with a valid credit card for payment. Your request for services through the Site will not be fulfilled until full payment has been received and/or verified.

A. TIME TO PRESENT CLAIMS

You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or Application or to this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action accrued or shall be forever barred.

B. ALL DISPUTES, OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS ACTIONS, SHALL BE SUBMITTED FOR BINDING ARBITRATION

You and the Company agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof or the use of the Service or Application (collectively, "Disputes") shall be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. 

You acknowledge and agree that you and the Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class user in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and the Company otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of this Agreement.

Arbitration Rules and Governing Law: The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.

Arbitration Process: A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Connecticut and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

Arbitration Location and Procedure: Unless you and the Company otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in Hartford County, Connecticut. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and the Company submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

Arbitrator’s Decision: The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.

Fees: Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.

Right to Counsel: You have the right to be represented by counsel of your choice. However, you agree that in all events you, not Encompass Care Group, LLC, shall be responsible for all of your counsel’s fees.

Changes: Notwithstanding the provisions of the modification-related provisions above, if the Company changes this "Dispute Resolution" section after the date you first accepted this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to this Agreement), you may reject any such change by sending us a notice to staff@Encompass Care Group, LLC with "Legal" in the subject line within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated Date" above or in the date of the Company’s email to you notifying you of such change.

XXV. No Agency Relationship

Neither these Terms of Use, nor any Content, materials, or features of the Site create any partnership, joint venture, employment, or other agency relationship between us and you. You may not enter into any contract on our behalf or bind us in any way.

XXVI. Remedies

You agree that any violation, or threatened violation, by you of these Terms of Use constitutes an unlawful and unfair business practice that will cause us irreparable and unquantifiable harm. You also agree that monetary damages would be inadequate for such harm and consent to our obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that we deem necessary or appropriate. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies we may have at law or in equity.
