TULSA – Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the Eastern Oklahoma Veterans Affairs Health Care System recommends all Veteran patients refill or renew their routine medications for mail delivery to reduce the risk of community spread.

Order refills at least 14 days in advance using www.myhealth.va.gov or calling 1- 888-397-8387 (press 1 for pharmacy or 2 for pharmacy staff).

If patients have a prescription from a community provider or out of a critical medication such as insulin, blood pressure, mental health and anti-coagulation medications, they should go to the VA Outpatient Pharmacy in person in Muskogee or Tulsa.  

If patients have less than five days of medication remaining, call 1- 888-397-8387, press 1 for pharmacy and then press 2 for pharmacy staff.  

“It is never too early to order your medications,” a VA press release states. “You are encouraged to order your next refill as soon as possible.”

To track the delivery status of medications, sign up for informed delivery through the U.S. Postal Service at https://informeddelivery.usps.com.
