Early Prescription Refills
PACE, the prescription assistance program, is allowing for early prescription refills in order to allow older adults to keep several weeks' worth of medication on hand as is recommended by the current COVID-19 preparedness guidance.
Under regular circumstances, enrollees must use 75% of their supply before refills will be reimbursed. PACE will now reimburse refills purchased before 75% of the days' supply has passed except for opioids and other controlled substances – these will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
To refill your medication early, simply ask your pharmacy provider.
Pharmacies Offering Free Medication Delivery for All Older Adults
Local pharmacies across Pennsylvania are now offering free delivery for all older adults, even if they are not a PACE beneficiary.
When requesting your medication to be filled or refilled, simply ask your pharmacy provider for free home delivery.
Waived Signature Requirement Now Allows for No-Contact Prescription Delivery
As a result of current COVID-19 guidance, no-contact prescription delivery is now available.
PACE has waived the requirement that pharmacies must obtain a delivery signature on all prescriptions, allowing medications to be left at your door.
If you are having difficulties obtaining your refills, please contact PACE cardholder services at 1-800-225-7223.
