Medco By Mail

Your WSHIP prescription drug plan includes a way to save money and time by receiving your long-term medications (such as those used for high blood pressure or high cholesterol) by mail.

With Medco’s mail order pharmacies, you’ll get:

  • Up to a 90-day supply of medication for one mail order copayment
  • Brand-name and generic drugs
  • Fast and easy refills:
    • A few clicks at medco.com® or
    • A few minutes at 1-800-4REFILL (1-800-473-3455)
  • Freedom from monthly trips to the drugstore (which saves gas and time)
  • Free standard shipping with every order

If you’d like your doctor to fax in your prescription, download and print the Physician Prescription Fax Form.   Be sure to ask your doctor to write the prescription for up to a 90-day supply, plus refills for up to 1 year, as appropriate.

If you plan to mail in your first prescription, download and print the Medco By Mail Order Form.
Complete the form and send it along with your prescription.  If you currently purchase long-term drugs from a participating retail pharmacy, a Medco pharmacist can contact your doctor for a new prescription for up to a 90-day supply of each medication, plus refills for up to 1 year, as appropriate.

Please be sure you have enough medication to last until your first mail order prescription arrives (usually within 8 days from when Medco receives the order).  If your doctor faxes your prescription, your order will usually be delivered in 3 to 5 days.  

You can also download order forms from Medco’s website, www.medco.com.  Otherwise, request order forms and envelopes by calling Medco Member Services at 1-800-859-8810.
