MedPack FAQs

The MedPack Getting Started FAQs

Getting Started

  • A list of your medications, usually from your Primary Care Physician (PCP). This ensures that we capture all active medications, including those with no refills, when we call the previous pharmacy to transfer your prescriptions. Feel free to use the MedPack Patient Worksheet to record all of the necessary information.

  • A copy of your prescription coverage card.

With prescription coverage, there are other important numbers on the card that we need to be able to process, such as RX BIN, PCN and RXGRP.

  • Your demographic information including
    • Name
    • Address
    • Phone number
    • Allergies to medications
    • Current physicians
    • Current pharmacy

  • A contact person for us to follow up with if applicable, such as a visiting nurse or other caregiver.

Yes, you can sign up a person for the MedPack the same way you would sign yourself up.

There is no additional charge for the special packaging, and no additional charge for our delivery service. You are responsible for your normal prescription plan formulary copay.

The first delivery is usually only a one week supply of medications so that you can let us know if there should be any adjustments made to times of administration, etc. We will follow up on the second week with the rest of that month's supply.

Most patients get the entire month fill with each delivery, and delivery will be every 4 weeks on a particular day of the week (i.e. every fourth Wednesday).

Our pharmacists are ready to help with any questions that you might have. Please feel free to call us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 844-633-7265 / 401-726-6200 or email us at

White Cross will contact your physician one week prior to shipment for any needed prescription refills. This provides ample time to receive orders back from the provider.

If you receive a new prescription order during your MedPack cycle, we will send out a supply to cover your needs until the next MedPack arrives. If you would like we can also wait to start that new medication with the next MedPack delivery.
