How much does it cost to refill a prescription near me?
Prescription refill appointments are appointments with physicians or prescribing providers to refill or manage an existing prescription. These are different from appointments for prescriptions for new medication.The frequency and type of prescription refill appointment you need will vary depending on the type of medication you’re taking, your relationship with the provider, your past prescription or medical history, and more. In most cases, you can either see a doctor in-person or virtually, however your provider may ask you to come in for additional lab work if your medication requires it.
