Prescription drugs no longer available in 90-day supply at retail pharmacies through UHC

Effective August 1, 2010, UnitedHealthcare (UHC) members can receive a 3-month supply of certain maintenance medications through mail order only. Previously, members could receive a 3-month supply of these medications at any UHC network retail pharmacy.

To continue receiving a 3-month supply, members must mail order their medication or refill the prescription monthly at a network retail pharmacy. Members should be reminded that over 300 generic prescriptions are available in a 90-day supply for as little as $10 at several national chain retail pharmacies, including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens and CVS. This option may be less expensive than mail order through UHC depending on your medication.
