Make sure you have a supply of asthma or COPD medication on-hand

If you have asthma or COPD, you know how important it is to have your medication readily accessible. 

With more cities asking residents to shelter-in-place or practice social distancing, it’s even more important to make sure you have a supply of medication in your home, in case it becomes difficult to visit the pharmacy.

Experts recommend that people with asthma or COPD stock up on a 14-30 day supply of their medication. 

If you need to refill a prescription but can’t visit the pharmacy, you may be able to schedule pharmacy delivery to your home. Check with your current pharmacy to see if they do mail delivery. If not, we’ve put together a list of leading pharmacies that offer prescription delivery by mail in just a few days. 

As always, you can access medication refills and other pharmacy services from Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, Kroger and Rite Aid through the My Pharmacy feature in Propeller. You can also check with your insurance or pharmacy benefits provider to see if you qualify for other mail delivery options. 

If you have questions about your health or you’re not feeling well, contact your healthcare provider by phone to determine whether you should be seen in-person.
