Wilmington VA Medical Center
Pharmacy - Prescription Refills
VA's prescription benefit ensures that our Veterans receive safe, effective, medically necessary medications that represent a good value. If you are being treated by a VA primary care provider, you will be provided all necessary medications for you treatment. Some Veterans may receive their VA medications free of charge based on their service-connected disabilities. While other, who do not have service-connected disabilities, are charged a copayment for each 30 day supply of medications VA provides.
There are several ways you can refill your prescriptions.
You can use the "My HealtheVet" Website to refill your VA prescriptions and view your VA prescription history online. To access Prescription Refill, you must be a registered user of My HealtheVet. If you are not a registered user, to register and learn how to use Prescription Refill, visit the My HealtheVet Web site.
Medication refills can be requested by mailing the refill notice provided to you at the time of your original fill. Your order will be processed through our Pharmacy mail-out program. Routine refills cannot be processed at the Pharmacy windows (unless there are special circumstances).
Some VA Pharmacies have toll-free automated telephone refill systems. See the phone number listing for your local VA Facility.
Filling Prescriptions from Non-VA Providers
VA will provide medications that are prescribed by VA providers in conjunction with VA medical care. Medications are prescribed from an approved list of medications called a formulary. VA will fill prescriptions prescribed by a non-VA provider only if all of the following criteria are met:
· You are enrolled in VA health benefits
· You have an assigned Primary Care Provider
· You have provided your VA health care provider with your medical records from your non-VA provider
· Your VA health care provider agrees with the medication prescribed by your non-VA provider.
Your VA health care provider is under no obligation to prescribe a medication recommended by a non-VA provider.
The Wilmington VA Medical Center Outpatient pharmacy serves about 4,000 veterans per month and processes approximately 1,500 prescriptions daily. To help us serve you better, we have several ways for you to refill your prescriptions. Immediately after you get your first prescription or renewal from your doctor, you can request future refills by telephone, the internet or by mail.
Important Note! If you request your next refill immediately after receiving your current prescription, you will receive your refill before you run out of medication.
