As a MESSA member, you have access to Express Scripts pharmacy for convenient home delivery of the medications you take regularly.
The benefits of using Express Scripts include home delivery of a three-month supply of your long-term medications, free standard shipping and 24/7 access to a pharmacist from the privacy of your home.
3 STEPS TO GET STARTED
- Log in to your MyMESSA member account. Click the “Rx home delivery” link to register, transfer eligible prescriptions to home delivery and order refills.
- Contact your doctor. Call your doctor to obtain a new prescription for a 90-day supply of your long-term medications.
- Register adults covered by your plan. Dependents over 18 need to register with Express Scripts separately at express-scripts.com, and they need to authorize you to view and order prescriptions for them, if desired.
Just like at a retail pharmacy, your standard copayments and deductibles apply. Please note that short-term medications such as antibiotics must be filled by a local retail pharmacy, and specialty medications must be filled through your local pharmacy or via AllianceRx Walgreens Prime, a specialty home-delivery pharmacy.
For questions specific to Express Scripts’ delivery service, call Express Scripts at 800.903.8346 (TTY: 800.876.1089).
