    Naval hospital and prescription.

    Advertisements
    About three weeks ago, I got my first prescription (It's for a year.) for birth control and had it filled at the Naval hospital. After I got everything, I was told I could just call in for my next refills. So, here's where I have a couple questions.

    - How early am I allowed to call in a refill?
    I know that you, normally, do it a couple of days prior to finishing your pack. Say DH and I are going on leave for a while, though. (I just want to prepare for the future.) Will I be able get enough packs for the amount of time that we're gone? How will all of that work out?

    - When go to pick up my prescription, do I need to bring anything in with me? (I know I'll need my military ID.)
    When I got my first pack, I was given a case with my prescription label stuck to the inside of it. Do I need to have that with me?

    TIA.

    I have no clue about calling in prescriptions, but normally you need your ID card and your TPC card (at least you need both here)

    Here they give us a three month supply of refills...

    You will not need anything else besides your ID to pick it up.

    For mine there is a 1800 number on the box/bottle to call for refills, I just call that number and follow the prompts, if it is too soon to refill the system tells me the date that it can be called in. Then I just go to the pharmacy with ID and pick it up. When we out of state one time I just went to the MTF near by with my ID and explained I was running out of it and they gladly refilled it on the spot. Birth control isn't a highly controlled substance, so it hasn't been hard in my experience to get a refill. Hope that helps!

    ditto....they should be able to tell you when to call it in if its too early. Virginia's pharmacy line did that.
