Maintenance medications, those you take on an ongoing basis for conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol, are filled in three-month supplies. The 90-Day Rx Solution offers easy and convenient choices for filling maintenance medication prescriptions: use the mail order service, or order and pick up your supply at a Rite Aid pharmacy in New York or New Jersey.
To begin, use any participating retail pharmacy the first two times you order up to a 30-day supply of a maintenance medication. After that, you will need to fill the prescription either through Medco By Mail (Medco’s mail-order service) or at a Rite Aid in New York or New Jersey.
Ask your doctor for a prescription for a 90-day supply with 3 refills.
Fill out a Medco Mail Order Form and mail it with your prescription.
Medication is usually delivered within 8 days after receipt of order. Standard shipping is free.
You may also have your doctor fax your prescription to Medco By Mail. Ask your doctor to call (888) 327-9791 for faxing instructions.
