Prescription Filled on Day of Visit to Medical Center

If your provider orders new medication for you at your visit, you may be able to pick up this new medication that same day. Please follow this procedure to reduce your waiting time:

  1. Check with your provider to see if the medication will be mailed or available for pick-up.
  2. Go to the Outpatient Pharmacy and take a number from the kiosk.
  3. When your number is called, speak to the Pharmacist who will counsel you on the proper use of your medication and possible side effects.
  4. Wait for your name to appear on the monitor, informing you that your medication is ready.
  5. Present your VA identification card at the Pharmacy Pick-up Window and sign the pick-up pad to receive your medication.

New Prescriptions

A new prescription voids any previous prescription written for the same drug. If the pharmacy is out of the medication or supply ordered by your physician, the request will be put on hold and the medication or supply will be mailed to you as soon as it arrives.

Prescription Co-Payments

Some patients may be responsible for a co-payment for discharge and outpatient medication. The determination for payment will be based upon your current established eligibility and service connection.
