Your Prescriptions by Mail or Delivery

Pharmacies are considered an “essential business” during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our partner pharmacies are making some adjustments to service, including home delivery. Please check our list of partner pharmacies and contact yours for specific operational details. If you are a patient of Metro Inclusive Health but receiving prescriptions elsewhere, you may also inquire about transferring to support our Copay it Forward program.
