PocketPills Online Pharmacy

MCIP members now have access to a “pharmacy at your fingertips” where you can refill, renew, and manage your entire family’s prescriptions through the PocketPills app or website, and have them packaged and delivered directly to your door!

PocketPills will bill your plan directly; you are out of pocket only for the amounts not covered by your plan. It’s easy to transfer refills to PocketPills – they handle all the arrangements.
