What is Electronic Prescription?
An electronic prescription is a computer-generated prescription sent electronically from your health care provider directly to our pharmacy. Electronic prescriptions are sent using a private, secure, and closed network. Your prescription information is not sent over the internet or as an email.
Why ask for an e-Prescription?
Your electronic prescription is sent directly from your providers to our pharmacy eliminating the need to drop off a paper prescription. The electronic process can help prevent medication errors, suggest alternative drugs to save money, and process prescriptions more efficiently.
Will my prescription be ready when I arrive at the Pharmacy?
Beginning March 25, 2023, please have your provider send your prescriptions electronically to military pharmacies for all medications.

Ask your doctor to send your prescription electronically to our pharmacy using the following information:
- For same day pickup: Activate your prescriptions using ONE of the methods described below (Q-Anywhere text service, phone, or an activation kiosk at the hospital).
