How to obtain new prescriptions

  • Ask your provider if you NEED to pick the medication up the same day.
  • If your provider believes it is necessary to fill the medication on the same day, please present to the pharmacy intake window.  Be aware wait times can vary, but it generally takes about 30 minutes to fill a medication once you have checked in.
  • If your provider doesn’t believe you need the medication the same day, you don’t need to do anything.  Pharmacy will process the order for mail out, and it will arrive to your address on file within 7-10 days.
  • Please only request window medication fills for urgent/emergent needs.  This will help keep wait times low for those veterans that are in true need of same day medication services. 

How to obtain refill prescriptions

  • Please utilize the meds by mail program!
    • You can refill your medications via:
    • Audiocare Prefill
      • Will contact you via text or landline if you have not requested a refill within 21 days of your next due date.   
    • Do order medications REFILLS in advance.  Generally, the recommendation for any medication you take regularly is to call it in as soon as you receive it either at the pharmacy or in the mail.  The system will set your prescription up for your next due date and will mail your medication in advance to ensure you receive it prior to running out. 
    • At minimum, to ensure you receive your medication prior to being out, it is recommended to call your medications in at least 2-3 weeks in advance.  

Prescriptions from community care providers

Prescriptions written by non-VA providers are generally not filled by the VA pharmacy unless VA authorizes the care. Prescriptions resulting from VA authorized care can be sent electronically to any of the South Texas Veterans Health Care System's pharmacies at eRx address San Antonio VAMC, 7400 Merton Minter Boulevard, San Antonio, TX 78229

If a prescription resulting from authorized care is needed urgently it may be filled at a local non-VA pharmacy using the information found at: About Our VA Community Care Network And Covered Services | Veterans Affairs.
