I'm traveling out of the country for a month and was prescribed malaria pills. I was told to start them 1 week before I leave, and end one month after I return (9 weeks total). However, "insurance only covers 1 month supply." It also says that I can get a "partial refill." What does this mean? Does this mean that if I go to the pharmacy again when I get back they will fill the rest of the prescription? I'm confused. I'm just trying to stay safe out there...
bttb; your right just get what the Insurance well pay for now. BUT MAKE SURE IT IS ENOUGH TO GET YOU THROUGH YOUR TRIP AND BACK then fill the balance of the prescription so that you take the whole course very Important. IF you can't get enough get your Insurance card out and find the phone number and call them and tell them you need them all to be able to go on your trip. Also this way you well only have one co-pay. Also take your prescription in to the pharmacy soon just in case they don't have enough to fill the whole thing this well give them time to order it before you have to leave.
