Refill Policy

All Veterans are encouraged to refill their prescriptions by phone or Internet.  Because of our patient workload, prescriptions cannot be refilled at the main Cincinnati VA Medical Center pharmacy window.

An automated refill line is available for all Cincinnati VA Medical Center patients. Please call 513-487-6606.

We do not automatically refill prescriptions.

A medication prescription is void after one year no matter the number of refills remaining.  Controlled substances refills are void after six months from date of issue.  Certain controlled substances (Schedule II - for example: Percocet, Morphine), require a new written prescription for each refill.  New prescriptions may be picked up at the pharmacy or mailed to your home.
