Central Texas Veterans Health Care System (CTVHCS) has its own pharmacy for greater convenience to our patients. Our Pharmacy service cannot issue medications or supplies prescribed by private physicians. We fill only prescriptions written by CTVHCS and Fee Basis physicians. The pharmacy processes over 3,000 prescriptions daily. Many of these prescriptions are filled by the Central Mailout Pharmacy (CMOP). Prescriptions may be refilled by phone or the Internet.
Note: In order to see the names of the medications you are taking, you will need to go to Release of Information and fill out a form. Otherwise, you will only be able to see the prescription numbers.
A new prescription voids any previous prescription written for the same drug. If the pharmacy is out of the medication or supply ordered by your physician, the request will be put on hold and the medication or supply will be mailed to you as soon as it arrives.
Some patients may be responsible for a co-payment for discharge and outpatient medication. The determination for payment will be based upon your current established eligibility and service connection.
Please visit My HealtheVet for information about any prescription you may be taking. You may also speak to a pharmacist by contacting Pharmacy Customer Service at 1-800-423-2111, extension 53990 (Pharmacy Help Line).
