All of the above are right, we use Walmart for most as most of the places we have traveled have a walmart somewhere pretty close. However, some states, in our case New York, allow a prescription transfer into the state, but only one time, and then it cannot be transferred to any other state. We had to call our Doctor and have a new script faxed to the store where we were. Then 90 days later, we had it transferred to where we were. So you might need to check before having a script trnsferred.

Leave your existing insurance and meds and pharmacy relationship as a going concern, don't mess with it.

There is another way to get sufficient meds to augment or supplement your existing situation.

Depending on your meds, Costco Pharmacy sells them at a low price, and Costco also accepts GoodRx to lower the cost further.

A 90 day from your regular pharmacy, a 90 day from Costco, BOOM! You've got a 6 month supply.

I just asked my Doc for a duplicate script for me to carry into Costco and just paid cash for the meds.

Simple and easy peace of mind.

I get meds through the VA. I can go to the open pharmacy tell them I am leaving for a couple months, they give me a 90 day supply. If I run out I can look for the nearest VA and go in for refiles.

VA cal them and they will ship to where you are. Also like Edd505 said they will fill most meds for 90 days.
Wife now gets hers through CHAMP VA same pharmacy.The fill all her meds 90days at a time.
When she was getting hers though insurance where she worked and later Medicare supplement they only had certain pharmacies in the network.CVS They would fill only 30 days at a time, and she could get a medication filled one me out of home area. Next refill would require a new script there and when she got home. Really put a crimp in traveling for more than month after she retired.I kept telling her she could get them through the VA for several years.She could also have enrolled in VA and go her meds and if she wished, medical care at VA until she retired and went on Medicare including dental which she really needed and cost tn out of pocket and it would have continued.Wouldn't listen.

We faced this issue. My wife needs to take meds that should be stored in the refrigerator. When we were going to travel for a long period of time, her doctor kindly agreed to give her a prescription to a bigger dose than usual. So, my wife ordered her meds, I also decided to Buy rybelsus and insulin in advance. We bought a little insulated travel cooler, packed our meds and an ice pack, and extra zip lock bags for ice there. By the way, if you are going to travel by plane, it may also be useful to include the box or container your medication arrives in with your name and prescription information in case the TSA requests to see it.
