MOUD programs have strict rules that both patients and providers must abide by. These rules are enforced by the DEA, which include no early refills.
We encourage you to book an appointment several days before running out of the medication to avoid last-minute pharmacy issues, but we do not authorize refills earlier than the grace period of your individual pharmacy (which is generally between 1-3 days).
In summary, we cannot authorize early refills for the following:
- In cases of lost or stolen medications
- You took more than the prescribed and authorized amount
- Travel-related early refills
To mitigate any travel related issues we recommend the following:
If you know your travel plans in advance, please instruct your doctor to send you less than a month's supply so that your refill date does not fall into your travel dates. This will ensure that you will be able to get a refill shortly before your trip.
