Prescriptions mailed to me FAQ
How can I get my medicine in the mail?
If your prescription is already at HealthPartners, Park Nicollet or another pharmacy in our family of care, pick “mail to me” when refilling it. If you have HealthPartners pharmacy insurance, we’ll ask you if you want to use your mail order benefit.
Your doctor can send us your new prescriptions electronically. But you’ll have to call us to pay and to give us your mailing address.
If you want your prescription filled at a HealthPartners pharmacy, but it’s currently at a different pharmacy, like Walgreens or CVS, fill out the transfer a prescription form. If you want your prescription transferred to Park Nicollet or another pharmacy in our family of care, call us at one of these numbers. We’ll call the pharmacy to transfer your prescription to us.
How do I know if I have a HealthPartners Mail Order benefit?
Can I get a 90-day supply of my medicine?
Yes. If you use HealthPartners Mail Order, we’ll automatically increase your prescription to a 90-day supply if it’s an eligible medicine.
If you’re not using HealthPartners Mail Order, let us know if you want a supply that’s different from what your doctor prescribed.
