How quickly are my prescriptions delivered to me?
Our goal is to process and delivery your prescriptions within 24-48 hours of receipt. Longer delivery times may occur for packages delivered to Canadian provinces outside of Ontario. Delays may occur if the pharmacist needs clarification from your physicians office or yourself or if the prescription requested does not have a repeat remaining.

Your medications are delivered in a discreet tamper-resistant package with no identifying marks as to the contents or source. Pharmex uses a number of different couriers including Priority Courier, Purolator, Atripco, and Fedex.

Yes. All medications delivered to a patient require a signature by the patient or an agent designated by the patient.
What if no one is home to receive the delivery?
Priority Courier will leave notice that a package is available for pick-up and signature at your local Post Office.
How do I pay for my medications?
The enrollment process gathers all relevant information to fill your prescription including company benefit plan, Ontario Drug Benefit Program (ODB), drug card number, credit card number, etc. If you have anything to pay it is applied to your credit card at the time your medication is leaving the pharmacy.
Can other members of my family join even if they are not associated with my benefit plan?
