Prescriptions from non-VA Providers
Prescriptions from non-VA providers cannot be filled by the VA pharmacy (except in special circumstances*). If you would like to obtain a medication prescribed by a non-VA provider, the prescription and justification for the prescription must be forwarded to your VA provider. Your VA provider will decide whether or not to order the medication you are requesting from the VA Pharmacy. He/she may choose to prescribe a similar medicine that is covered under VA benefits.
Here are several ways to get outside (non-VA) prescriptions to your VA provider:
*Veterans in Aid & Attendance, Housebound, and Fee ID programs who do have a VA provider can have non-VA prescriptions filled directly by a Primary Care Pharmacist
To ensure that your non-VA providers are able to provide you the safest, most effective care, always take your VA medication list to your non-VA providers and talk with them about the care you receive from VA Butler Healthcare.
