Group Health Pharmacy Information
Group Health Medical Centers has 21 pharmacies in Western Washington, four pharmacies in Spokane, and a mail-order service. Filling your prescriptions at Group Health Medical Centers pharmacies gives your Group Health doctors and pharmacists easy access to your medication records so they can review your medications with you and check all medications for unwanted interactions. It also allows you to use our online or telephone refill system and have your prescriptions mailed to your home, with great prices and free shipping.
If you currently get your prescriptions filled at a contracted community pharmacy, you can transfer them to the Group Health Medical Centers pharmacy system using our online form (log on to MyGroupHealth and go to the "Medications" section), calling or dropping in to a Group Health Medical Centers pharmacy, or mailing or faxing the printed prescription transfer form.
If you do not live near a Group Health Medical Centers pharmacy and don't want to use our mail-order service, you can have your prescriptions filled at one of our many contracted community pharmacies.

Note: If you are allergic to any drugs, it is very important to tell your doctor and pharmacist. They will include this information in your records.
To fill a prescription, you need your Group Health member ID number. Be prepared to pay your cost-share for your medication when you pick it up.
You can refill your regular medications by calling your usual pharmacy at least one business day ahead of time. This is the best option if you need refills quickly.
Use our mail-order pharmacy service to refill prescriptions online or by telephone and have them delivered free of charge anywhere in the United States. Allow seven business days for this option.
Care Product Kiosks
You can find common over-the-counter medications and many personal care products at your Group Health Medical Centers pharmacy.
Each of our pharmacies features a kiosk, offering more than 300 nonprescription medications and care products at prices comparable to those found in drug stores.
"Often our members can avoid that extra trip to the drugstore and save money by purchasing these items at the pharmacy" said Nancy Brotherson, manager of retail product sales. "If the product they need is not found in the care product kiosk, it is most likely behind the pharmacy counter. Another benefit is that a pharmacist is available for consultation."
