Mail Order

Lower your prescription copays by choosing preferred network pharmacies and convenient mail-order service.

In addition to network pharmacies, you can use AllianceRx Walgreens Prime. It’s a mail-order service that offers:

  • Three ways to order refills: online, by phone or through the mail
  • Up to a 90-day supply of medications at one time
  • Notifications when your order is received and when your prescriptions are sent (by email or over the phone, whichever you prefer)

Out-of-Network Pharmacies

Covered drugs are available at out-of-network pharmacies in emergency or unusual circumstances and for non-routine access to covered Part D drugs (illness while traveling outside the plan’s service area where there is no network pharmacy, for example). For more information on these special circumstances for out-of-network coverage and/or what pharmacies may be available to you, please contact us.
