|What is home-delivery pharmacy?|
Home-delivery pharmacy allows you to order a three-month supply of covered drugs or diabetic supplies and have it mailed to you each month, either to a residential address, PO Box or clinic.
If you have OHP benefits, you pay nothing for your home-delivered prescriptions. There are no copayments and no shipping fees.
|Who can use home-delivery pharmacy?|
Clients who take the same prescription drugs month after month for ongoing health conditions will benefit the most from this service.
- Clients not enrolled in an OHP medical plan can sign up to get most prescriptions filled.
- Clients in OHP medical plans can sign up to get prescriptions covered by DMAP (not the medical plan) filled, such as most mental health drugs.
- Clients with OHP with Limited Drug benefits can sign up to get prescriptions covered by DMAP (not Medicare) filled, such as certain decongestants.
Home delivery isn't for everyone. You may prefer to talk to a pharmacist in person about new medications.
|How long does home-delivery pharmacy take to fill prescriptions?|
If you need the medicine right away, you should visit a local pharmacy.
It takes up to 10 days for your prescriptions to be delivered by mail. If you and your doctor are trying out different drugs, you should wait until you find the ones you will take long-term before you use home-delivery.
