Prescriptions from non-VA doctors

If you are a Veteran who receives health care from a doctor/provider outside of the VA system, you may be eligible to have them filled at a VA pharmacy. You will need to provide us with information about the prescription. In general, you will have to provide:

  • A copy of the original prescription(s)
  • A copy of the notes from the appointment when your non-VA doctor/provider prescribed the medication
  • A copy of the current lab tests and/or procedures related to the requested prescription

All information should be faxed to your Primary Care Provider at 612-713-6796 for your provider's approval of these medications. If your provider is in agreement with the new/changes in medications, your provider will write for them to be filled at the VA pharmacy.

This process may take 2-3 weeks to be completed and medication filled.
