How much are my co-pays?
For most customers, your co-pay will be the same as at your local retail pharmacy. If you are currently receiving your medication from mail order or in 90-day supplies, you may pay a slightly higher co-pay at MedMinder Pharmacy, but there is no cost for your MedMinder Smart Dispenser.
How do I speak to the pharmacist?
You can call us toll free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 855-RX-BEYOND (1-855-792-3966) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our knowledgeable pharmacists are happy to help in any way they can.

Can my doctor send prescriptions directly to MedMinder Pharmacy?
MedMinder Pharmacy is our full-service pharmacy, just like your local retail pharmacy, so your doctor can send prescriptions to us at any time via their e-scribe software or via Fax: 844-633-6463, Phone: 855-RX-BEYOND (1-855-792-3966)
Can you send me medications that don’t fit in the trays, like inhalers, eye drops or creams?
Yes. We are a full-service pharmacy and can dispense inhalers, eye drops and creams, as well as prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and vitamins.
What do you do about medications I only take sometimes and not every day?
The medications you take only when you need them (rather than on a specific schedule) are dispensed in standard prescription bottles rather than in your MedMinder trays. If you find yourself taking an “as-needed” medication on a regular basis, our pharmacy team can help you decide whether it might make sense to get a new prescription so we can include them in your next tray
I am caring for a loved one, may I sign them up?
Of course! MedMinder Pharmacy is an integral part of caring for your loved one. Just call our care team at 855-RX-BEYOND (1-855-792-3966) and we will help guide you through the simple steps.

Do I need to call my doctor or current pharmacy?
No. We will handle everything! When you sign up, our care team takes over for you. As part of our Smart Pharmacy Program, we have a new customer orientation.

From there we will work with you to set the best start date for your pre-packaged, pre-organized medication trays.
What happens if I get a new prescription?
If it is a medication that needs to begin right away, we will ship you a supply to last you until your next medication tray arrives with simple to follow instructions for adding them to your current cups. In certain cases you may have a medication that is temporary and must start immediately, (an antibiotic, for example). We recommend getting the initial doses for such medications at a local retail pharmacy. In all cases, we will ship you a complete new tray with all your current medications every two weeks. Of course, whenever you have a concern or question, just call. Our pharmacist is there for you.
What happens if my dose changes?
If you have a medication with frequent dose changes, we may put that medication in a separate card for you, or send a pill bottle with simple to follow instructions for adding them to your current cups. And again, we will ship you a new complete tray with all your current medications every two weeks. As partners on your care team, we will be working closely with your prescribers for the best and easiest way to manage your medications.
What if I need an antibiotic?
