Kroger Specialty Pharmacy provides free, secure delivery within 48 hours after we confirm your order, or later if you request. Your medication may require a prior authorization from your insurance company which requires additional information prior to covering your medication; this may delay the initial processing of your order but you will be informed throughout the process. Your order will be validated to ensure it meets all pharmacy and insurance criteria to be covered prior to shipping. If your order is missing any information, Kroger Specialty Pharmacy may need to contact your doctor or insurance company to obtain additional information.
We deliver your order, free of charge, to your home, doctor’s office or to any other location you choose with the exception of a P.O. Box. We include all of the necessary supplies for your treatment.
Refrigerated items are packed in a plastic bag to avoid condensation. The bag is packed inside either a Styrofoam cooler or an insulated pouch. Special ice packs are included to help ensure your medicine stays cool throughout delivery. Each box is secured shut with tape.
Call the pharmacy and a representative will instruct you on the prescription transfer protocol. If a medication is unavailable, you will be instructed on the steps that are taken to facilitate your continuum of care.
