Using mail-order services may save you substantial money on your medicare Part D drugs cost. In some cases, insurance companies may send you generic drugs for no cost (including shipping!) via mail order.
Let’s learn how to set up mail order drug services to have your prescription drugs delivered to your home. This way, you can skip the line and inconvenience of visiting a pharmacy and save money along the way.
How does mail order for Medicare Part D work?
Most Part D or Medicare Advantage health plans work with companies known as pharmacy benefits managers (PBMs) that allow you to order medications through the mail.
Most will provide you with 90-day supply of your medication from the plan’s PBM at dramatically reduced copays and overall cost compared to your local pharmacy. Often with their web portals or phone apps you can get refills with 1 click access.
Please note: Even if you set up mail order services, you can still get a separate 30-day prescription at any time at a local walk-in pharmacy.
