Medicare restrictions on mail-order drugs?
        Are there any Medicare restrictions on mail-order prescriptions?
        Many people enrolled in a Medicare Part D coverage for prescription drugs use an automatic refill service with their mail order prescriptions which allowed the pharmacy to automatically send your prescription medications when you’re about to run out. Although this is convenient for many people, too often, the mail order pharmacy was sending prescription medication enrollees no longer wanted or needed.
        In order to cut down on waste and unnecessary costs, Medicare enacted a new policy for mail-order prescriptions. Now the pharmacy must contact you before sending the prescription medication to get your approval unless you contact them first to authorize the next delivery. If you get unauthorized or unwanted prescription medications from a mail-order pharmacy, you may be able to get a refund for the prescription medications. Call 1-800-MEDICARE if you have concerns about unwanted mail-order prescriptions.
        This policy doesn’t affect prescriptions you pick up at the pharmacy that are automatically refilled. It also doesn’t apply to pharmacies in long-term care facilities.
