Your health and safety are our top priorities 

With so much changing every day, it can seem like there are more questions than
answers around the coronavirus (COVID-19). We encourage everyone to follow the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidelines to lower your risk of
exposure and keep your family and community protected. 

Here’s where you can learn more and how home delivery can help.

 

Guidelines on how to prevent
the spread of coronavirus

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Stay at home when you are sick, except to get medical care, and avoid visiting crowded places.

  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 

  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces you touch.

  • Follow all travel guidelines from the CDC.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I obtain an early refill of my medications?

A. We understand the desire to be prepared. Standard refill policies, which allow you to refill or renew a prescription medication when 25% of your current prescription is remaining, should help you stay on track with your medication during this time. 

We are monitoring the situation closely and will update our information and policy if or when the situation changes. We are committed to taking appropriate actions to ensure you have the medication on hand to keep you healthy. Should you have any questions or concerns about your individual situation, our pharmacists are available 24/7.

If you currently fill 30-day supplies of your medication at a local pharmacy and would like a longer-term supply, you can ask your physician to write your prescription for a 90-day supply and fill it at Express Scripts Home Delivery. You can get started here.

 

Q. Is my medication safe to take?

A. Yes, your medication is safe to take. We maintain rigorous safety standards for the inventory in our pharmacies, and only dispense medications that are approved by the FDA for U.S. market. All drugs approved for use in the U.S. must comply with FDA manufacturing standards to assure quality and product label requirements.

 

Q. Can you tell me where my medication was made?

A. We only dispense medications that are approved by FDA for the U.S. market. All drugs approved for use in the U.S. must comply with FDA manufacturing standards to assure quality and product label requirements. The FDA oversees drug manufacturing and has staff in overseas regions (including China, India, Europe and Latin America) in order to expand oversight of imported medical products.

 

Q. Can COVID-19 be spread by touching infected surfaces or objects?

A. It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not the primary way the virus spreads. In general, coronaviruses do not live well outside of the body and the vast majority of transmission is by droplet from direct contact with infected individuals. 

There is a lower risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient, refrigerated, or frozen temperatures. Members can take extra precautions by wiping down the external mailing package with a disinfectant wipe before they open it, and always washing their hands after.
