Frequently asked questions
- How much does this service cost? Our Compounding Pharmacy service costs the same as a regular visit to a DrugSmart Pharmacy. Shipping is free, we direct bill to all private insurance plans, and our dispensing fee is $10.99. The cost of the actual medication will vary based on what the medication is.
- When will my medication arrive? Your pharmacist will give you a specific window of time, and the timing will depend on the compounding requirements. Once the medication has been compounded, the delivery will arrive in 1 to 3 business days.
- Is compounding safe? Yes. Health Canada has stated that compounded prescriptions are both ethical and legal as long as they are prescribed by a licensed practitioner for a specific patient and compounded by a licensed pharmacy. As a licensed pharmacy, our compounding practices are regulated by the Ontario College of Pharmacists.
- How do I get refills? You can easily request a prescription refill on our mobile app, online store, or by contacting your local DrugSmart. To refill online: go to the product "Prescription Refill", select your DrugSmart location, enter your Rx number, add it to your cart, and check out.
- What if my coverage is my provincial public plan? For Ontario residents we can bill direct to the Ontario public plan and all private insurance plans. For non-Ontario residents, we can bill direct to private insurance plans only.
Are all pharmacies compounding pharmacies? No. Only certain pharmacies have the model standards, license, and equipment required to compound medications.
