Express Scripts By Mail

Express Scripts By Mail offers convenience and cost savings on prescription drugs taken on a regular, long-term basis, such as medication to reduce blood pressure or treat respiratory conditions, asthma, diabetes, or high cholesterol:

  • When you buy a covered prescription through the home delivery service, you pay a copayment for each prescription or refill:
    • $14 copayment for each generic prescription.
    • $30 copayment for each brand-name prescription listed on the drug program formulary.
    • $60 copayment for each brand-name prescription not listed on the drug program formulary.
  • This program covers up to a 90-day maximum supply for each prescription drug or refill for a single copayment. You can submit authorized refills as early as 30 days before your current prescription runs out.
  • Prescriptions will be processed promptly, usually within 48 hours of receipt. After processing, please allow 3 to 5 days for normal mail delivery.

Certain drugs are temperature or motion sensitive and cannot be ordered through the home delivery service.
