You may only obtain a 30-day supply and one refill at a retail pharmacy. If you remain on a medication longer than 60 days (i.e., initial fill plus one refill), you must obtain subsequent refills through the Express Scripts Mail Order or through the Smart90 Retail Program as described below.
Mail Order: You may purchase up to a 90-day supply of covered drugs or supplies through the Express Scripts Mail Order Service. You order you prescription or refill by mail from the Express Scripts Mail Service. The Express Mail Order Service will fill your prescription.
Smart90 Retail Program: Maintenance and long-term medications are taken regularly for chronic conditions or long-term therapy. Examples include medications for managing high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. Through Express Scripts Smart90 Retail Program, you may purchase up to a 90-day supply of covered long-term maintenance prescriptions and supplies. You will pay the applicable mail order copayment for each prescription purchased.
