VA will provide medications that are prescribed by VA providers in conjunction with VA medical care. Medications are prescribed from an approved list of medications called a formulary. VA will fill prescriptions prescribed by a non-VA provider only if ALL of the following criteria are met:
•You are enrolled in VA health benefits AND
•You have an assigned Primary Care Provider AND
•Your have provided your VA health care provider with your medical records from your non-VA provider AND
•Your VA health care provider agrees with the medication prescribed by your non-VA provider.
