How To Refill A Prescription Without A Doctor

Is there anything more annoying than having to make a doctor’s appointment just to get refills of a prescription you’ve been taking forever? You have to sit on hold trying to make the appointment, drive down to the office, sit in the waiting room for a long time since the doctor is usually running late, get your vitals taken, talk to a nurse, and then talk to the doctor just to walk away with your prescription refills. What if I told you there’s a better way?

How to Refill a Prescription Without a Doctor

With PlushCare, simply make an appointment online or call (888) 496-6817 to have a phone or video appointment with a doctor who will review your medical history and prescriptions, then electronically send refills to the pharmacy of your choice. It’s that easy!

What Prescriptions Can Be Refilled Online?

While we can’t refill every prescription with an online appointment, there are a variety of conditions that we can give prescription refills for, including:

And many more! Book an appointment toady to see if your prescription can be filled online.

What Prescriptions CAN’T Be Refilled Online?

Due to certain laws and regulations, there are some medications that we are unable to refill online classified as controlled subtances, including (but not limited to):

  • Narcotics (Vicodin, oxycodone, Percocet, morphine)
  • Sleep aids and sedatives (Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Ambien, Lunesta)
  • Stimulant medications (Ritalin, Adderall, Provigil)
  • Medical marijuana

Does It Matter What State I Live In?

PlushCare is available nationwide, which means you can get prescription refills no matter what state you live in.

How Many Refills Can I Get Per Appointment?

Our doctors will give you up to 90 days-worth of prescription refills per online appointment, based on their discretion.

Can I Use My Health Insurance?

Yes, PlushCare accepts most major health insurances. You’ll just pay the amount of your copay for your appointment, as you would at your general practitioner.

  • Book on our free mobile app or website.

    Our doctors operate in all 50 states and same day appointments are available every 15 minutes.

  • See a doctor, get treatment and a prescription at your local pharmacy.

  • Use your health insurance just like you normally would to see your doctor.

What If I Don’t Have Health Insurance?
