The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns that those with underlying health issues, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma, may be at a higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19.

Prepare for flare-ups and changes in your symptoms.

Be sure to create an action plan in case your symptoms flare up, or if new symptoms develop. Make sure to make copies of your plan and share with your family or neighbors, so your plan is accessible in the event of an emergency.

What does this mean for you? Stay on your medications and stay home.

It's more important than ever for you to continue taking your COPD/asthma medication, including inhalers, as prescribed and on schedule. To get your prescriptions without increasing your risk of exposure, get them delivered to your doorstep.

Priority Health members can get free at-home delivery for a limited time* through the following pharmacy vendors.

*Availability of these services at no cost will be dependent on social distancing guidelines.

How does it work?

  • Contact CVS* to ask about these home delivery options using, CVS mobile app, or by contacting your local CVS pharmacy directly.
  • Once you’re set up, CVS uses UPS or FedEx to deliver your prescriptions within 1-2 days.
  • There is no limit to a specific amount of days’ supply. You can get anything from a few days up to a 90-day supply (although we recommend setting up 90-day refills).

*CVS is not an in-network pharmacy for Medicaid and Healthy Michigan members. CVS is not a preferred Medicare pharmacy which means your cost share for drugs may be higher.

What if I have prescriptions with another pharmacy?

Other local pharmacies may have a “home-delivery” option. Check with your pharmacist for options.

How is this different than my current 90-day refills through mail order*?

If you already have an automatic 90-day refill set up, then no need to change a thing. You get discounted rates and your prescriptions delivered in the mail to your home already. Note: If you have a Medicare plan, you can find your 90-day refill information here.

*Mail order is not available for Medicaid members.
