What Happens Next?

The Patient Representatives at Medbank will process your application.  Medbank has a pharmacy that stocks about 100 medications.  If the medication you need is stocked in our pharmacy, we will send it to your doctor's office for you to pick up.  If we do not stock the medication in our pharmacy, we will apply directly to the drug companies' Patient Assistance Programs for the medicine your doctor has prescribed for you.  In most cases, you will receive a 90-day supply of each medicine you are taking.

How Do I Receive a Second Supply of Medications?

When you pick up a medication from your doctor's office, call Medbank and let us know the name of the medicine you have picked up.  We will track when it is time to renew your medication.  When your first prescription is almost gone, another 90-day supply will be waiting for you at your doctor's office.  Medications continue to come every 90 days and you are re-qualified financially once a year.
What if my Doctor prescribes a new Medication?

If at any time you stop taking a medeication or your doctor prescribes a new medicine, call the Medbank office and they will process the change.
