Refill Your Prescription
Enjoy a wide range of options to refill your prescription when you choose Olmsted Medical Center (OMC) for pharmacy services.
How to Refill Your Prescription
If you're out of refills, call your pharmacy location first. Your pharmacist will fax a request for more refills to your healthcare provider. Refills may take up to seven business days.
Tips for filling or refilling your medicine include:
- Order your refill(s) seven to ten days before you're out of medicine.
- Have your medication label with you when you call to verify you're taking the correct doses.
- Get your prescriptions refilled at the same time to avoid additional multiple trips to the pharmacy. Ask your pharmacist how he/she can help.
- If you use a different pharmacy and would like to switch to OMC, talk with your current pharmacy about moving your prescription refills to OMC. Then, ask your care provider to send future prescriptions to your new OMC pharmacy location.
You can complete your prescription refill for chronic (long-term) narcotic drugs Monday through Thursday. Because these medicines have a risk of dependence and abuse, OMC doesn't offer refills for lost or damaged chronic narcotic medicine.
Medication Sync Program
When you use OMC's Medication Sync Program, you can get all of your medications on the same day every month. This means you won't have to worry about running out of medicine. You can also choose to review your medications monthly during a call with a pharmacist.
Free Weekday Courier Delivery
Get free delivery Monday through Friday when you live within Rochester, Minnesota, city limits.
Prescription Delivery by Mail
You can have your prescription(s) mailed to your home by the U.S. Postal Service for no extra charge when you live in the state of Minnesota.
To sign up for medication delivery:
- Either bring or mail in your completed form AND the related prescriptions to an OMC pharmacy.
- Allow seven to ten business days for mail delivery. Incomplete information may cause delivery to be delayed beyond ten days.
- Let us know if you don't want to get generic medications, as generic medications are substituted when available and when permitted by your prescribing healthcare provider.
- Provide a valid credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) for payment.
Is Medication Delivery Right for Me?
You may benefit from mail-delivery service for long-term maintenance prescription drugs. Prescriptions for medications that are needed right away and/or for a one-time treatment (such as an antibiotic for an infection) should be filled in-person. By law, OMC’s pharmacies cannot accept returns of prescription medications for credit or reuse.
