The VAMC Lexington pharmacy processes thousands of prescriptions daily. Many of these prescriptions are filled by the Central Mailout Pharmacy (CMOP). Prescriptions may be refilled by phone, mail or the Internet.
New prescriptions may be picked up from the pharmacy or mailed to the patient. If mailed, expect medications to arrive in 7-10 working days after your appointment. Patients should inform their provider if they wish to pick up medications; otherwise the prescription will be mailed. Prescriptions for antibiotics should be picked up from the pharmacy on the day written.
Refills at VAMC Lexington Pharmacy
All veterans are encouraged to refill their prescriptions by phone, mail, or Internet. Because of our prescription volume, we are unable to provide refills at the main VAMC Lexington pharmacy window.
There are three ways to request prescription refills:
- Telephone Refill Line
An automated telephone refill line is available for all VAMC Lexington patients.
If you are using the automated refill line, all refills should be ordered at least ten days prior to when the refill is due to insure prompt processing and delivery time.
