Regular prescriptions are valid for up to one year from the date written, or until you have used up the refills authorized by your doctor. Controlled Substance (Schedule III and IV) prescriptions are valid for up to six months from the date written, or until you have used up the refills authorized (a maximum of five). Controlled Substance (Schedule II) prescriptions are valid for only 60 days from the date written and may not be refilled. If you are on a long-term Schedule II medication such as Methylphenidate, your physician may write up to three prescriptions at a time to be filled once each month. Please contact a pharmacist or your physician for detailed instructions for Schedule II medications. more

Prescriptions filled at pharmacies through Medicaid’s Vendor Drug Program are valid for six months and are limited to no more than five refills. Clients are enrolled in the Women’s Health Program for a period of 12 continuous months. To obtain 12 months of contraception through a prescription filled at a pharmacy, the pharmacy may contact the provider by phone to get authorization for the second six-month period, or the client may obtain a new prescription from her provider.
