The 90-Day Rx Solution

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.

How to use Express Scripts By Mail:

Ask your doctor for a prescription for a 90-day supply with 3 refills.

Fill out a Express Scripts 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 Express Scripts. Ask your doctor to call (888) 327-9791 for faxing instructions.

Need a refill? Order refills at https://www.express-scripts.com/ or call (800) 818-6720. Refills are usually delivered 3-5 days after Medco receives your order.

How to use the Rite Aid pharmacy choice:

Ask your doctor for a prescription for a 90-day supply, with 3 refills.

Bring it and your Health Benefit ID card to any Rite Aid pharmacy in New York or New Jersey.

You should be able to pick up your medication within 8 days.

Need a refill? Call or visit the same Rite Aid and provide the prescription number. To find a pharmacy nearest you, visit http://www.riteaid.com/ or https://www.express-scripts.com/.
