The first step is to activate your prescription before coming to pick up your medication.
New and renewal prescriptions are picked up at the Main Pharmacy. National Capital Region Network pharmacies no longer accept routine hardcopy or paper prescriptions. Exceptions are made only for prescriptions written by emergency or dental providers or provider offices without electronic prescription capabilities. Please have your provider send your prescriptions electronically to military pharmacies.
We highly recommend using the mobile prescription activation (Q-Anywhere) to minimize wait time in activating prescriptions.
All refill prescriptions are picked up at the PX Pharmacy. All refills must be called into the Pharmacy Audiocare refill line 1-800-377-1723. Turnaround time for refill requests is three business days.
Note: Same-day walk-in day refills will only be filled in emergency situations and may take up to four hours to process.
Please activate your request for medication before coming to the pharmacy for pick up as it will reduce your overall wait time.
