NHF Allowing Early Medication Refill for Beneficiaries ahead of Hurricane Beryl

NHF Allowing Early Medication Refill for Beneficiaries ahead of Hurricane Beryl

Effective immediately and for the next seven days, beneficiaries of the National Health Fund’s (NHF) Card Programme can refill their prescriptions early.

This as the NHF seeks to help cardholders restock their medication as they prepare for Hurricane Beryl, which is expected to impact Jamaica this week.

The allowance is as outlined below:

  • Prescriptions filled for a 30-day supply can be refilled on day 15
  • Where prescriptions were filled for a 60-day supply, refills can be done on day 45
  • Where prescriptions were filled for a 90-day supply, refill can be done on day 75

Where applicable, cardholders including JADEP beneficiaries are encouraged to visit the NHF Participating Pharmacy closest to them to refill their scripts. The lists of pharmacy locations are available on our website at https://www.nhf.org.jm/nhf-card/#providers-list.

NHF’s Chief Executive Officer, Everton Anderson in emphasizing how critical access to medication is said, “Taking medication on time, as prescribed by the Doctor is the best way to manage a non-communicable disease, even if the patient feels well. Ensuring that beneficiaries have sufficient medication to stick to their treatment plan during and after the hurricane is important to us and as such we have made the necessary arrangements for this to be realized.”

Drug Serv Patients are also urged to make use of the NHF’s alternative services such as the Quick Prescript Mobile App, Scheduled Refills and the Drop Off and Pick-Up Services to reduce their waiting time at the pharmacy.

For more information, beneficiaries may call the Customer Care Department at 876-906-1106. The NHF is committed to the care of its beneficiaries, and will continue to pivot and innovate in their best interest.
