How Long Does Kroger Pharmacy Hold Prescriptions?

When you need to pick up a prescription, it might be ready before you can go to the pharmacy to pick it up. So how long does Kroger Pharmacy hold prescriptions? Knowing the answer could prevent your medication from being shelved if you wait too long or causing you to feel rushed to pick it up. 

How Long Does Kroger Pharmacy Hold Prescriptions?

Most Kroger Pharmacies will hold your prescriptions for about ten (10) days. Different Kroger Pharmacies may have varying lengths of time that they will hold a prescription before it goes back on the shelf. Knowing how long Kroger Pharmacy will hold a prescription may help you pick up your prescriptions on time and without much hassle. To know the most accurate amount of time Kroger Pharmacy will hold your prescriptions, call your specific pharmacy location and speak with a pharmacist or pharmacy technician. 

Can Kroger Pharmacy Remind Me to Pick Up My Prescription?

Kroger Pharmacy places automated calls to customers regarding their prescriptions. This may remind a customer to pick up a prescription, inquire about insurance, or remind them to refill their prescription. Customers may also choose to receive a text or email notifying them that their prescription is ready for pick up and can sign up for this feature through the Kroger My Prescriptions App. 

How Can I Pick My Prescription Up At a Different Kroger Pharmacy?

When you decide to fill your prescriptions at a Kroger Pharmacy, you can easily change your pick up location to a different Kroger Pharmacy location. When using their online platform, you can simply “select a different pharmacy” when you are on the confirmation page. Once you change locations and confirm, you will be able to pick up your medication at that new location. Be advised that there may be another waiting period before your prescription is ready at the new location. If you choose to transfer your prescription to a new different pharmacy other than a Kroger Pharmacy, you will need to make a more formal request, and it may take longer. 

How Long Do Prescriptions Take to Fill?

Kroger Pharmacies give customers a pickup time that is calculated based on the day and time the prescription was submitted. How long it takes to fill your prescription may vary based on the availability of your medication, how long it takes to verify your insurance, and a variety of other factors. At Kroger Pharmacy, you may receive a “partial fill” if the pharmacy does not have the entire supply available at the time and will complete the fill with the remainder of your medication when it is available.
