Pharmacy Information and Policies

Dropping off and picking up a prescription:

  • For ALL beneficiaries over the age of 18, patients will need:
    • Patient's military ID; and
    • Yellow Card: non-active duty personnel must be registered in the electronic Third Party Collections system and update annually.

Filling a prescription:

  • All prescriptions received by the pharmacy REQUIRE the patient or their caretaker to request the prescription to be filled or “Activated.” Prescriptions are not automatically processed by pharmacy. Standard turn around is 24 hours. However, this can be shortened due to patient need such as injury or infection.
  • Robins Pharmacy can now receive electronic prescriptions including controlled substances. This is the PREFERRED way to send a prescription. Hard copy prescriptions will have increased processing times.

How to Activate a Prescription

  • Preferred
    • Via MHS Genesis portal ( send a message directly to Robins Pharmacy requesting the specific medication(s) to be filled. Stating all medications or everything due are not acceptable requests.
      • First time users will need to “Create New Account” and follow verification process before they can access the patient portal.
  • Non-Preferred
    • In person by taking a ticket via the Kiosk located in the pharmacy lobby (this is the only way to have a hard copy prescription filled)
    • Via telephone *note limited phone line available*

Refilling a prescription:
