With the pandemic raging, we may not boast the mobility and flexibility we once had in procuring our medications. From social distancing to shelter-at-home restrictions, it is fast becoming advisable to avoid the pharmacy as much as possible physically.
Pandemic or not, your health condition is not taking a holiday off. Definitely, you still need your over-the-counter medication and prescription.
How then do you still maintain a consistent supply of these vital commodities in the face of these pandemic-inspired constraints?
In this guide, we would touch on some creative pay to procure your medication in a COVID-stressed society.
Explore Free Delivery Options
Given the disruptions triggered by the pandemic, many big box and retail pharmacies are now offering free delivery. This is an excellent means of procuring your drugs without an in-person presence at the pharmacy.
You could reach out to your pharmacy and inquire about the delivery options they have. A bulk of such orders is now being fulfilled via mail. Therefore, you can be expecting your medication in about 48 hours after you place your order.
Such orders can be placed be via your debit or card, and the pharmacy delivers the medication to the designated address you provided on your file.
Getting months’ supply via mail order pharmacy
Another alternative is procuring months’ supply of your medication via mail-order pharmacies. These are unusual times, and many insurance companies are proportionately adapting by allowing you to get more than a month’s supply of your medication.
These special exceptions allow you to procure up to 3 months’ supply of your medication, mailed straight to you by your pharmacy.
