Pharmacies make transferring your prescription an easy process. Your new pharmacy will be eager to sign you up, so will do most of the work when you want to take advantage of their lower prices or more convenient location.
The process typically takes less than a day (usually just a few hours) to complete, and some pharmacies allow you to transfer prescriptions online.
Pharmacies need some basic information to transfer a prescription:
- Prescription information
- RxSpark voucher information
- The name and contact number for your current pharmacy
It is not possible to transfer some prescriptions, for example for controlled drugs and specialty medications. In these instances, you will probably need to talk to your physician for a new prescription.
