What Kind Of Medicines Can I Get By Using Meds By Mail?

  • Generic medications – to see if your medication is available call the Pharmacy Servicing Center (1-866-229-7389).

  • Be sure the prescription has the doctor's printed name, phone number, and mailing address
  • Mail in the original prescription (not a copy) with the completed order form

How Do I Get A Refill?

  1. Call in your refill request using the 24 hour automated refill phone line at 1-888-370-1699.
    *Be sure to have your Social Security number and prescription numbers available.
