No refills left? 

If your prescription was previously filled at an Allina Health Pharmacy you may request more refills via:

  • Phone: Call the Allina Health Pharmacy location of your choice.
  • Online: Sign in to your Allina Health account, select Health info, then select Medications.

Have your name, prescription number and name of medication ready when requesting refills. If the prescription number is not known, your birth date and/or social security number may be used to find the record.

Tips on refilling your prescription

  • Before your next appointment, check your medicines to see if you need any refills. If you do, tell your health care provider at your appointment.
  • If you have enough medicine until your next appointment, do not call for a refill. Your medicine may be changed when you go in for your appointment.
  1. Have a prescription order signed by your physician.
  2. Bring it to one of our pharmacy locations OR have your physician call or fax in the new order.

We make it easy to transfer your prescription to any of our pharmacy locations. To transfer a prescription:

  1. Find the name and phone number of your previous pharmacy.
  2. Call the Allina Health Pharmacy location of your choice to arrange for a transfer of your prescription.

If you need a stimulant prescription, or are calling for someone who needs a written prescription, call your clinic and leave a message on the nurse line with the following information:

  • patient's name (include spelling of the last name)
  • patient's date of birth
  • name of the medicine.
  • phone number where you can be reached
  • indicate if prescription will be picked up or mailed to the patient

The clinic needs three to five days to get the refill written and signed.

  • Your prescription may say "no refills." This can happen if a new order is received and the prescription number is different. You may still have refills available at your pharmacy. They will fill the new prescription when you call them for a refill. If needed, have them check your profile. If they do not have orders, they will call your clinic.
  • Refills are not available after clinic hours.
