What is my prescription number?
It is a number, beginning with an 11, found at the top left corner of your prescription bottle. It remains the same until your refills run out. When you get a new prescription from your doctor for the same drug, it is assigned a new prescription (Rx) number.
What happens if I mail in my refill and it is too soon to fill?
We will mail your prescription on the earliest available refill date if the medication is available for refill within 30 days. Every insurance plan differs in their rules regarding the number of days between each refill. We do not send refills automatically. Most plans require that members use 75% of your most recent refill before you can order again. The earliest refill date is printed at the lower left of your prescription bottle.
How do I pay for my prescriptions?
With new or refill prescriptions received by mail, you can send a check or money order along with your Mail Order Form. You may also pay by credit card, which we can store for future orders. Orders will not be processed without payment.
Can I transfer my prescription from my local pharmacy?
Yes, in most cases. Members should contact our customer service department at (800) 687-8629 and speak with a representative to transfer prescriptions to Maxor Mail Order Pharmacy.
What are the benefits of using Maxor Mail Order?
It is a convenient way to have your prescriptions delivered to your home and, in most cases, at a significant cost savings. Please refer to your prescription card or your plan document for specific co-pay savings. Ask your physician to write two prescriptions, the first one written for a 30-day supply to be filled immediately at your local pharmacy and the second written for a 90-day supply to send to Maxor Mail Order.
You will always be charged the mail order co-pay when you send or transfer a prescription to the mail order pharmacy. To maximize your savings, ask your doctor for a 90 day supply with refills up to one year. Note: A 30-day prescription with 2 refills is not the same as a 90-day prescription. The mail order pharmacy is required to fill each prescription as it is written.
How will my prescription order be mailed?
Your medications are generally delivered via first-class mail by the US Postal Service. We also offer expedited shipping through UPS or FedEx for an additional fee. Please note that UPS or FedEx requires a physical address and will not deliver to PO boxes. Refrigerated medications, such as insulin, are shipped Second Day UPS or FedEx at no additional cost to you.

You may call the MaxorPlus customer service at (800) 687-0707 if you have any questions regarding the status of a prior authorization request.
What happens when my prescription is out of refills?
