You might be wondering

Why can I no longer access epocrates+ as an international user?

epocrates has discontinued offering our mobile app and the ability to purchase an epocrates+ subscription to non-U.S.-based customers. You will still be able to access free epocrates content and features through epocrates online (online.epocrates.com). We apologize for this inconvenience. Please contact our Support Team if you have any questions or concerns.

How do I view my purchase history and receive previous billing receipts?

For purchases made through us directly at epocrates.com, your billing receipts are sent to the email associated with your epocrates account.

Please note that if you have purchased your epocrates+ subscription through Apple or Google Play from within the mobile App, then your billing details are emailed by Apple or Google to the email address associated with your Apple or Google account. There should also be a purchase history available through these respective accounts where further details can be obtained.

If you have more questions or need additional help, please reach out to support through the Help and Feedback page located below, or by creating a support inquiry from within the epocrates mobile App.
