Why does Winona ask for a photo of your drivers license ?

We request a photo of your driver’s license, because telemedicine laws require us to verify your identifying information before prescribing medication.

We understand any hesitation to upload information online, but we can assure you that the photo of your ID will be stored securely. It will only be shared with the patient support team and our identity verification platform.

Your Winona medical provider is legally obligated to verify your identity using the government issued ID, before they can determine if prescription medication is right for you. Your personal identifying information, medical history, and ID will never be shared outside of the Winona secure healthcare system.
