How to Refill Your MedBox
What is MedBox?
MedBox is a specialized pharmacy service specifically designed with seniors in mind. Our mission is to empower seniors by simplifying the often complex task of managing multiple medications. We help seniors stay in control of their health, improving health outcomes and reducing the risk of hospitalization.
At MedBox, we essentially bring the convenience and precision of long-term care pharmacy services right to your home. We understand that managing several medications can be challenging. To address this, MedBox offers a unique service of pre-sorting all your medications by dose into easy-to-use packets. Each packet is clearly labeled by date and time, making it straightforward for seniors or their caregivers to ensure that every dose is taken correctly and on time.
But our commitment to making medication management easy doesn’t stop there. We also deliver these pre-sorted medication packets directly to your door, completely free of charge. This service eliminates the need for trips to the pharmacy and ensures you always have your medications when you need them.
In essence, MedBox is a comprehensive medication management solution designed to empower seniors to maintain their independence and enjoy a healthier, worry-free life.
How much does MedBox cost?
With MedBox, you don’t have to worry about additional expenses. Our pharmacy dispenses medications in our unique packaging and delivers them right to your door, all at no extra cost. Essentially, we offer you the benefits of a long-term care pharmacy service from the comfort of your home. We provide this higher-value service at the same cost as your current local pharmacy. Your only responsibility remains the regular monthly medication co-pays, if any.
Are there additional costs for these MedBox dispensers?
Absolutely not. There are no additional costs associated with our MedBox dispensers. They will be shipped to you free of charge, and they’re designed to be reused with your upcoming medication refills.
What happens if the MedBox dispenser is damaged or lost - is there a replacement fee?
The MedBox dispensers are made from quality materials, designed to be durable and resist damage under normal usage. In the event of loss or damage, however, we can offer a replacement at a minimal cost of $10.
How much will my copays be? Will they change if I switch to MedBox?
No, your copays should remain the same as what you would pay for a 30-day supply at your local retail pharmacy. Your copays are set by your insurance company and should not change if you switch pharmacies.
How will I pay my copays?
You can use a credit card or checks to pay your copays.
Do you take my insurance?
We accept Medicare, multi-state Medicaid, Medi-Cal, Blue Shield, and most private insurances.
I have a VA insurance. Can I use MedBox?
We do accept Tricare, however, if you get your medication directly from the VA you would have to continue with them due to insurance restrictions.
I have Kaiser insurance. Can I use AmeriPharma?
We do accept certain Kaiser plans. Please call us to verify. However, if you have a Kaiser commercial plan, you would have to continue with Kaiser due to insurance restrictions.
