In addition, keep the following information in mind before purchasing prescription drugs from a participating pharmacy on the Mainland:
- You’ll be required to have a written prescription to obtain your medication.
- Empty prescription containers marked “refill”aren’t accepted.
- Some states only allow pharmacies to accept prescriptions written by physicians licensed in their state.
- Some states only allow pharmacies to dispense a 30- or 60-day supply, regardless of the amount indicated on your prescription.
- If your medication is lost or stolen, you may be responsible for the entire cost of your medication to replace it.
- You can refill a prescription only when you have met the refill requirements of your drug plan. Most plans require you to use two-thirds of your prescription before obtaining another supply.
