Where should I go to obtain reliable and useful information about my health condition?
What should I do to have a prescription refilled?
Prescriptions needing renewal typically require 48 hours to be filled.
- Start the prescription refill process by contacting your preferred pharmacy. The pharmacy will then contact us to verify pertinent refill information. To make the refill process smoother,
- Ask your pharmacy to FAX the refill request/order to: 303-346-0407.

- Important: The on-call provider will not be able to refill prescriptions for you.
- Also please call your pharmacy a few days before you run out so that sufficient time is available to fill your prescription.
- You are encouraged to request refills 5 days before you run out of your medication
