Thread: Will VA fill prescriptions from non VA Drs.

  1. #1

    Will VA fill prescriptions from non VA Drs.

    I have Medicare as well as VA. A Humana representative said I could get their coverage without the prescription coverage and VA would take care of prescriptions.
    Does any know if this is true.

    No. You must have a VA provider prescribe any medications (or supplies) obtained through the VA. You should establish a VA provider (ideally through the local SCI clinic) and then ask to have them set you up with "co-managed care" with your non-VA provider.

    If you also have Tricare coverage, which you probably do only if you have a blue or tan ID, you can fill your paper prescriptions at any Military Treatment Facility for Free. You can also use the Home Delivery plan for a very small copay.
    Played with bombs- No SCI, Brain Damage enough that I require a chair and a caregiver.
