Is it Worth it to Use Home Delivery for Prescriptions?

Home delivery is a convenient option for filling your prescription medications. While Medicare Part D plans allow you to use retail pharmacies, many people prefer to have their prescriptions delivered right to their door. 

Is it Really Cheaper to Use Home Delivery?

It’s common for Medicare plans to charge lower copays for maintenance medications if you purchase them through home delivery. Typically, these are tier 1 and tier 2 medications. Maintenance medications are usually taken long-term, making home delivery a convenient and cost-effective option. Our client advisors can help you determine if you could save money on your prescriptions by using home delivery.

When Not to Use Home Delivery

When using home delivery, you should allow for processing and shipping time. If you need a medication immediately, going to a local pharmacy makes more sense.

Typically, 90-day supplies of medications are dispensed with home delivery. If you need a shorter supply such as 30 or 60 days, you may want to have your prescription filled at a local pharmacy. An example of this might be if your doctor is having you try out a new medication or you were prescribed an antibiotic that you will only need to refill one time.
