CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (WNCT) - There’s now an easier way to pick up your prescriptions aboard Camp Lejeune. The Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune’s first drive-thru pharmacy window opened Monday morning.
The window is located at the NH-200 Clinic Annex just across the road from the Medical Center’s main building.
“If you’re busy and you have kids in the car and you don’t want to get them unloaded or if you’re elderly or have mobility issues, this is a great option,” Lt. Cmdr. Katherine Jaudon, NMCCL Pharmacy Dept. Head, said.
The drive-thru window will function specifically as a refill location; new prescriptions will still need to be filled at NMCCL’s main pharmacy or the NMCCL Pharmacy at the Exchange.
“Parking is a huge issue here,” Jaudon said. “The drive-thru window is just one less reason to be in the hospital.”
To use the new drive-thru refill option, beneficiaries may call the prescription refill line (1-866-207- 1028) and when prompted, select the “Clinic Annex Drive Thru Pharmacy” (option 2) as the pick-up location. Patients may also refill prescriptions via the TRICARE online portal and select the drive-thru window pick-up location.
Beneficiaries will then be given a date, usually within 48 hours, to retrieve their prescription at the drive-thru. The refill drive-thru window will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
The new service will not be replacing any refill pick-up options currently available. The purpose of the pharmacy refill drive-thru window is to provide an additional pick-up location for patient convenience.
