How can I get prescriptions delivered?

One of the easiest ways to stay on top of your health is to adhere to your medication regimen and schedule. Health plans and pharmacies recognize it’s not easy to get to the pharmacy, so they started delivering medications. Most health plans with prescription drug coverage provide the option to have a 90-day supply of your medication delivered at no cost to you. Ask your pharmacy or your insurance carrier about your options.

How does prescription delivery work?

Mail-order medication works just as it sounds. Whether you order by phone, mail, or online, most programs offer home delivery for 90-day supplies. Usually, the home delivery option in your plan does not cost you anything. Mail order medication is not less secure, your medication is checked by a registered pharmacist. You can contact your plan provider to learn about quality and safety.

Also, you can receive the added convenience of automatic refills if your medication qualifies. Your in-network pharmacy can mark your refill to arrive in time before your other is complete.

Can I order my prescriptions online?

Yes. You can save time by ordering and refilling prescriptions online with most plans. You should contact your plan’s provider to find out if your online order is filled on your pharmacy’s website or on your provider’s website. Once you’ve ordered online, you can expect to have your medication delivered directly to your home. After you’ve ordered online, you can continue to use an online service or most plans offer phone options, too.

Do I pay extra for delivery?

No. Mail-order medications are a free service for most plans. In fact, most aim to provide a 90-day supply anytime it’s allowed, based on the medication. Most 90-day supplies end up costing you less than a 30-day supply filled at a retail pharmacy.
