Frequently Asked Questions
- How much are my co-pays?
In most cases, your co-pays will stay the same as it is at your local retail pharmacy for a 30-day supply of medication. If you are currently receiving 90-day supplies, you may pay a slightly higher co-pay with PillPack.
Your co-pays are set by your insurance company and may vary based on certain factors, including where you fill medicines, your deductible (if you have one), and what kind of medication you’re receiving.
If you’d like to know if your insurance is compatible before signing up, please don’t hesitate to call and speak with one of our Advisors by calling 855-745-5725.

- How are PillPacks dispensed?
Our highly precise system contains multiple barcode checks and is built to dispense your exact medication into the correct doses. Each packet dispensed is sent through an image recognition system that ensures the right pill is in the right pack. Our system can detect dispensing accuracy by size, shape, color, and density of the pills, and catalogues an image of every single packet dispensed. PillPack pharmacists are involved in every step of filling your prescription, including checking each packet before it leaves the pharmacy.
- How does billing work?
We charge you when we ship your medications. Usually this means you’ll be charged every 30 days when we send your monthly shipment. If we send you any other medications throughout the course of the month, you’ll be charged for those when we ship them.
Your bill includes co-pays for prescription medications, along with the retail cost for any vitamins and OTCs you’ve added. Your monthly co-pays are usually the same as a 30-day supply at a retail pharmacy. You can review detailed payment information anytime on your Dashboard.
