What happens if I fill maintenance medications at a retail pharmacy instead of using Express Scripts home delivery?

You can still use a retail pharmacy, like CVS, Walgreens or Walmart, to fill a prescription for non-specialty medication, you need to take on a short-term basis. However, for maintenance medications, there will be a $10 penalty after the second retail fill. We recommend using Express Scripts home delivery to avoid the penalty on maintenance medications.
