Refill Policy

Your physician must authorize the number of refills on your prescription. Refills must be requested and will be mailed to your home.
You may order your refills through the automated telephones refill system by calling 1-800-244-2912 or by mailing your refill form to the pharmacy at least two weeks before your supply runs out to allow for processing time. We do not automatically refill prescriptions. A medication prescription is void after one year regardless of the number of refills remaining. (Controlled substances refills are void after six months from the date of issue). Refills are generally mailed rather than filled at the pharmacy window to better serve patients with new prescriptions. Doing so decreases the wait time for window prescriptions.
If you have refills remaining on your prescription, you may reorder them by mail, phone or the interet using MyHealtheVet. The address and phone numbers are as follows:
Central Texas Veterans Health Care System
Pharmacy Service (119)
4800 Memorial Drive
Waco, TX 76711
1-800-244-2912
