What’s Electronic Prescribe (E-Prescribe)?

Patient collaborating with pharmacist

Doctors must request or prescribe a medication before you can place an order.

The fastest way for your doctor to send us your prescription is through e-prescribe), a secure, private network used by most retail and military pharmacies to keep your information confidential.

How to e-prescribe

  1. Ask your doctor to e-prescribe for a safer and faster prescription process. 
  2. Tell them which pharmacy you want to use. Choose a military pharmacy, a network retail pharmacy, or delivery by the Express Scripts pharmacy.
  3. When you pick up your medication, let your pharmacist know your doctor sent your order electronically. 

Your doctor should be able to e-prescribe most medications although handwritten prescriptions may be required for some medications. For example, military pharmacies do not accept electronic prescriptions for controlled substances.
