The Rx Refill mobile application (app) allows Veterans to request refills of their refillable VA-issued prescriptions, track VA prescription deliveries, view VA prescription history from the convenience of their mobile device. The app provides a native mobile interface for the Rx Refill feature found within My HealtheVet. Refill requests submitted through the app or the My HealtheVet website that are dispensed by a VA Mail Order Pharmacy are easily tracked using the app’s “Track Delivery” feature. NOTE: VA is undergoing an Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM), which may impact whether My HealtheVet and Rx Refill applications are operational at your facility. To Learn more about EHRM, visit at www.ehrm.va.gov.

For those without a compatible mobile device, web-based prescription refills can be found at VA.gov or My HealtheVet.

The Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) Rx Refill mobile application (app) allows you to request refills of your refillable VA-issued prescriptions, track VA prescription deliveries, view VA prescription history and access additional medication information on My HealtheVet from the convenience of your mobile device. The app works in conjunction with the Rx Refill feature within My HealtheVet, and refill requests submitted through the app or the My HealtheVet website are trackable using the app’s Track Delivery feature.
To use the Rx Refill App, you must have a My HealtheVet Premium Account, ID.me, or DS Logon Level 2 (Premium) Credentials. Rx Refill accesses your VA Electronic Health Record (EHR) and therefore requires secure credentials. If you do not have a ID.me, DS Logon Level 2 (Premium) or My HealtheVet Premium Account, or you are not sure, visit mobile.va.gov/login-information. NOTE: If My HealtheVet is not operational at your facility, this app will not work.
The app has four main features, which include:

  • Refillable VA Prescriptions – Shows a list of your VA prescriptions that are available for refill.
  • Track Delivery – Includes the status of mailed VA prescriptions.
  • Prescription History – Displays additional VA prescriptions, both refillable and not refillable, including a history of your refill requests.
  • Medication Information on My HealtheVet – Provides quick access to My HealtheVet links.
From either the Home screen or the Features drop-down list accessible on the horizontal navigation bar, tap Refillable VA Prescriptions. A pop-up Important Information box will appear, and read the information and tap OK. You will go to the Refillable VA Prescriptions screen that shows a list of refillable VA prescriptions. Tap Sort to view the list alphabetically by medication or by facility or chronologically by dispensed date. Tap the arrow next to the refill on your device or select See Details beneath the VA prescription you’re interested in refilling, and you will go to a Refill Details screen. Review the information on the Refill Details screen and tap Request Refill. A pop-up confirmation box will appear asking if you’re sure you would like to refill the medication. Tap Yes if you would like to refill the medication, and a pop-up confirmation box will appear to let you know the VA prescription was successfully refilled.
Yes, you can refill multiple VA Prescriptions if multiple VA Prescriptions are available. You can ‘Select All’ under the Refillable VA Prescriptions or select the radio button next to each prescription you would like to fill. A pop-up will appear and will ask if you are sure you would like to refill the selected prescriptions. Tap Yes to confirm that you would like to refill the selected medications and a pop-up will confirm that the Prescriptions requests were sent.
Not every VA-dispensed prescription can be refilled, such as some pain medications and certain narcotics. Only refillable VA prescriptions dispensed by a VA pharmacy can be requested. Some prescriptions with refills may not have the option to request a refill because not enough time has elapsed since you last requested a refill.
If the VA prescription cannot be refilled, you will receive an error message with information on why the refill was not refillable and guidance on getting assistance.
To determine if your VA-dispensed prescription is eligible for refill, review the status. To review the status, from either the Home screen or the Features drop-down list accessible on the horizontal navigation bar, tap Refillable VA Prescriptions. A pop-up Important Information box will appear. Read the information, and tap OK. You will go to the Refillable VA Prescriptions screen that shows a list of refillable VA prescriptions.

After you’ve requested a refill of a prescription, the prescription’s status will change to Refill in Process. This shows that your VA pharmacy has received the request and is processing it. Your VA pharmacy will package your refill and mail it to you at the residence indicated in your file. See the fill date to learn when the medication will be ready to be mailed to you. The process of filling a refill request takes approximately 8-10 days.
