How to Transfer a Prescription From One Pharmacy to Another

Save

If you move or need to transfer your prescription to a new pharmacy, you do not need to contact your old pharmacy. Most pharmacies have a prescription transferring process that only requires a request and a small amount of information from you. The new pharmacy will contact your old pharmacy and request all the required information. You can easily transfer your prescriptions over the phone or in the store usually without any hassles or stress from your old pharmacy.
